A combination of elegant styling coupled with effortless performance made them highly desirable despite a very expensive price. - They were and remain regarded as one of the most luxurious and elegant vehicles to ever emerge as a production machine. - Even today their performance, handling and quality sets them apart as one of the most sought after and desirable vehicles ever produced. - Because of their time consuming, hand-assembled nature, Mercedes offered this, their top of the line V-8 Cabriolet for just a single production year in 1971. Orders were first accepted in October of 1969 with initial production starting in November of that same year. No additional orders were accepted after April of 1971 with production officially ending in the first week of June of 1971. A handful of final vehicles were completed and delivered in July of that same year. Once these vehicles were completed and delivered, Mercedes Benz ceased production of any further hand assembled vehicles. - Production of all models thereafter were executed on the assembly line by individual linemen. The days of team hand assembly of a single vehicle were gone forever. Only 1,232 of these highly coveted vehicles were ever completed. for comparison, Mercedes built no less than 1,400 300SL Gullwing and 1,848 300SL Roadsters. This particular 280SE 3.5 Cabriolet was special ordered new by the authorized Beverly Hills Agency in the Spring of 1971. The order requested: -Special Equipment, high-output 3.5-liter V-8 Cabriolet Coachwork -USA production model and equipment with English calibrated gauges -Horizon Blue exterior paint -Dark Blue Full Leather Interior and matching carpets and soft top -Air Conditioning -Power Windows -Becker Multi-Band Stereo Radio, Amplifier and Power Antenna -Power Steering / Power Brakes (Standard Feature) -Four-Speed Automatic Transmission -Individual Split Front Seats -White-Wall Tires -Heat Insulated Glass The order was processed by Mercedes under commission number ##. The following components were assigned for group completion under this commission number and remain with the vehicle today: This vehicle was originally ordered and remains painted in strikingly beautiful “Horizon Blue” with slightly contrasting darker blue full leather interior and soft top. - This rare Mercedes Cabriolet has just benefited from no-expense spared complete cosmetic restoration. - The mechanics are likewise very fresh, with set up and sorting mileage only since the completion of work. - It is completely matching numbers and totally rust and accident free with complete books, jack kit and tool kit.
