1972 Mercedes-Benz 280 SE, Concours condition, 49k kms For Sale

This is an exceptional w108 280 SE. It was ordered new in the fall of 1971 and delivered a few months later featuring the most elegant Moss Green Metallic with Cognac MB-Tex along with a series of options. Its owner used the car rarely yet serviced and cared for it evident by its immaculate interior and accident-free body. By 2016 the car had only 48000 km on the clock yet its original paint and engine were in need of professional attention.It was then sold to its second owner who decided to restore to concours level at a cost of over 30000 euros. Extreme care was provided to preserve the car's authenticity by restoring instead of replacing in mind. The body was treated with an stunning respray to the original Moss Green Metallic with all seals fitted new. The engine, suspension, steering and brakes were overhauled and detailed using genuine Mercedes-Benz parts. The interior was carefully preserved and all wooden panels were reconditioned to show standards.
The car is now offered in concours cosmetic and mechanical state with all original MB order and delivery documents.
