1968 Mercedes Benz 280 SE - NO RESERVE For Sale by Auction
For sale in our forthcoming auction in Paris, on 17 June 2019:
Chassis # 10801810007260
Engine n ° 13098010002955
- For 50 years in the same family
- Interesting version, manual gearbox
- A reliable and efficient car
- No reserve
Purchased new in the Paris region, the car on offer remained in the same family for nearly 50 years before being acquired by its current owner. Well preserved, the car is sound and was only resprayed in its original dark red hue. The interior mixes elegantly fabric and red leatherette in perfect condition, with matching carpets.
In 2017, after prolonged storage, the car underwent a major overhaul with replacement of injectors, refurbishment of the injection pump, fluid draining, replacement of the front brake calipers and fuel pump as well as refurbishment of the rear differential sealing. The following year, the water pump was changed and the ignition redone, and then recently the steering box was tightened and the gearshift control ring replaced. The tyres are from recent times and have hardly been used. A test drive showed us that the car is in satisfactory condition, with good accelerative ability and driving comfort. The 280 SE offers an interesting synthesis: a true collector car, which is at the same time reliable, powerful and comfortable and which can be driven over long distances. This beautiful example is ready to hit the road, with family or friends, all set to enjoy a delightful car for the forthcoming holidays!
Auction estimate: €12 000 / 18 000 - Without reserve price
