The 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SE Sedan featured here is finished in the stunning factory color combination of white over a blue interior. This U.S. specification example is equipped 4-speed manual transmission — an incredibly rare and highly sought after feature on a U.S. model W108 chassis. Very few U.S. cars have been built in this configuration and examples such as this are highly desirable. This classic S-class currently presents in wonderful condition showing partially original paint and a largely original interior. The undercarriage still displays most of the original factory inspection markings which prove that this example has been meticulously maintained from new. A mere 35,000 miles are present on the odometer; this number is believed to represent the total mileage accrued since new. A generous amount of factory options and features are present including air conditioning, power steering, power 4-wheel disc brakes, Becker Europa AM/FM Radio and more! A recent service has been performed and this example is now ready to be enjoyed by its next owner.
