1972 Mercedes W108 280 SE /// 65k Miles For Sale

FOR SALE: An excellent UK-supplied 280 SE, with just 65k miles from new.

Automatic transmission, Driver and passenger front armrests, Alpine CD player, Blaupunkt cassette radio (not fitted), Electric aerial, Rear armrest, Horn push ring, Lockable glove compartment, Front seatbelts, Cigar lighter, Front and rear ash trays, Interior lighting, Spare wheel, Mercedes tool roll.

This handsome ‘70s saloon is in excellent condition throughout, perfectly in line with the low mileage of just 65k miles. The glistening Tunis Beige paintwork remains to a lovely standard and still presents with a sharp metallic flake – our studio photos really don’t do it justice. On closer inspection the plentiful brightwork appears original all round and is remarkably well preserved, the chrome still displaying a mirror shine with few signs of age. There are no nasty marks to the bumper trims and the light clusters are without any unsightly damage or moisture ingress. The dealer-supplied ‘peak’ plates are still fitted front and rear.

The dark MB-Tex upholstery is in excellent order with almost no wear to the seats at all. Wood trim adorns the fascia, dash top, and front window surrounds, all of which is still looking great with minimal patination. The footwell carpets are also in fine order and the headlining is free from any rips or sagging. There is no cracking or distortion to the dash and all the switchgear operates just as it should. An aftermarket Alpine head unit (not pictured) has recently been fitted for modern convenience but the period Blaupunkt cassette radio shown is also included with the sale.

The 280 SE’s 2.8-litre M130 engine is fed by mechanical fuel injection, as opposed to that of the 280 S, which utilised twin carbs. The under-bonnet area of this example retains a very clean and tidy appearance, the engine having been serviced within the last 1k miles. This service work was accompanied by a light mechanical re-commissioning, all carried out by renowned marque specialist SS Motors.

The Mercedes sits on 14-inch steels finished with the original body-coloured wheel covers. The painted/chrome embellishers are in great order and show only minor age-related wear to the outer rims. The aged Michelin tyres in the photographs have since been replaced with new Maxxis rubber all round.

This UK 280 SE was first registered in January 1972; it was supplied new by Woking Motors in Hersham. Later that year it was sold by Walton Lodge Garage to its second owner. Mr Timmis drove the Mercedes up until November 1993, having always ensured the maintenance was kept up to date. In 1994 it was taken to Spain where it resided as part of a private collection until 2016. Upon arrival back into the UK the car was sold to the current owner by 4 Star. With the aim of putting it into more regular use some light re-commissioning was carried out by renowned Mercedes specialist, SS Motors. New tyres were also fitted, and a handful of additional parts have since been replaced.

The History File is complete with all the original handbooks, the dealer-supplied service booklet, plenty of past MOT certificates, the original warranty slip, period ownership documents, literature for the Blaupunkt radio, and several invoices for recent mechanical works. The MOT is valid until April 2020.
