A testament to Mercedes design, quality and luxury.
The 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SE 3.5L Cabriolet is a timeless piece of design, quality and luxury hand assembled German machinery. Just 347 3.5 Cabs were built in ‘71, this being an excellent numbers matching, rust free example. The original mile aluminum head V8 200hp engine with its 4 speed automatic transmission, limited slip differential and 4 wheel disc brakes runs out smoothly and is a joy to drive at any speed. Treated to a cosmetic refresh some time in the last 20 years, the original color of Tobacco Brown DB423 with matching Brown soft top was changed to this stunning Mercedes Blue Green DB268 with Tan soft top, keeping the original Cognac leather interior. Fully serviced and tuned with updated AC to R134a refrigerant, refreshed Bosch Fuel Injection to include complete fuel delivery system, brake system flush and exhaust system refresh to the tips.
Mercedes options include US Production, Becker Multi Band Europa Stereo, Power Antenna, BEHR AC, Power Brakes & Windows, Individual Front Seats, Heat Insulated Windshield and Original Steering Wheel. Priced properly and a rare opportunity, this 3.5 is a must see, ready for inspection and a fine addition to any drivers shed.
