I'm selling my beautiful milanese brown mercedes benz 280ce (w123) pillarless coupe after 5 happy years. I've moved house and don't have access to a garage any more. 

the car drives beautifully, no leaks or knocks. It has the 2. 8 litre straight 6 engine, with automatic transmission, and cruises comfortably at speed. With the window down and the sunroof open it is almost like driving a convertible.

the colour is very rare and stunning - photos don't do it justice - and the car receives admiring comments every time i drive it. It also has the rarer mb-tex leather style seats - most examples have cloth. It has electric windows front and rear, an electric sunroof.

the bodywork and interior are in good condition but by no means perfect - pretty much everything is original. There is some filling to the wheel arches and some rust on the fuel injector and radiator, a tiny tear on the drivers seat fabric, and some slight stains to carpeting.

i have most of the service history. I believe it was garaged for much of its life, the second owner was an older gentleman and owned it nearly 30 years
- driving it regularly but only small distances.

other notes:
• most expensive w123 model - this was the flagship model of the range
• restoration parts such as trim are unavailable now so buying cheap and restoring is no longer an option
• last of the engineer-led mb cars that were built with no expense spared
