Overview
Mercedes Benz W111 Coupe was manufactured in 1971 and is a last production very rare RHD 280SE. A 2,778 cc overhead-camshaft six-cylinder M130 engine with mechanical fuel injection by Bosch.
W111 coupes have a reputation for their reliability throughout, making them great even for everyday use. Apart from that, the W111 coupé are suitable family cars. The backseat offers room for two, or maybe even three, making the car very practical.

Provenance
Manufactured in 1971, my Coupe was supplied new by Charles Sidney Ltd of Bradford to the managing director of a local business, Woolcombers (Worsted Spinners) Ltd, in May 1971.
Unfortunately the MD died of a heart attack in Tel-Aviv not long afterwards and in March 1972 the car was acquired by an East Yorkshire garage proprietor, Gordon Fussey, who replaced the original registration number, OKY 298H, with his own personal number plate, AT 20, and was to keep the car for the next seven years.

Ownership then transferred to a Mike Rozenbroek of Cottingham, East Yorks, who maintained the car scrupulously, winning several prizes at classic car events in the North of England during the early 1980s. According to a news clipping in the history file, the car also used by various celebrities during this period including soap queen Vera Duckworth of Coronation Street fame and American TV star Telly 'Kojak' Savalas.

It then had a couple of further long-term owners before being acquired in 2004 by film producer David Laub and Adam Yauch (of Beastie Boys fame) at Oscilloscope Films.
In 2006 Laub passed the car on to the noted musician, Geoffrey Burgon, composer of many film and TV scores including 'Brideshead Revisited', 'Life of Brian', 'Doctor Who' and 'Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy'.

Burgon gave the car to his wife in 2009, yet another musician (Jacqueline Kroft), who kept the car for five years, using it on a regular basis including many trips from the Cotswolds to London and back and numerous school runs (hence the inertia-reel seat belts fitted front and rear).
In good and original condition throughout with attractive white coachwork, a nicely mellowed wine leather interior and excellent chrome. It also retains all its original handbooks, W111 rare tool kit, original rubber boot mat and comes with a good history file including many old MOTs back to 1983.
I have owned the car for 6 years now, selling to fund new purchase.
