1969 Mercedes-Benz 280SE Cabriolet

VIN 11102512003478
85,741 original miles
One of only 1,390 produced

This desirable 280SE Cabriolet was sold new in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States, where it remained with the son of the original owner until 2017. A meticulously maintained example, this Mercedes-Benz Cabriolet was subject to a comprehensive restoration and is in stunning condition! Finished in its factory color combination of Medium Blue (530H) over a blue leather interior with a dark blue convertible top. The upholstery remains in excellent good condition including all of the wood, front & rear seats, carpets, dash, headliner, soft-top and door panels. The wooden inlays provide a nice contrast to the dash. The chrome is in perfect condition and is not pitted or scratched. Mechanically, the 2.8L engine fires right up and holds a steady idle with a very responsive 4-speed automatic transmission. Over $7,000 has been spent over the past few years including a new timing chain, work on the fuel injection and a full service. Options include air conditioning, power windows, leather seats with folding armrests, power steering, power brakes, Becker Avus AM/FM radio, and heat-insulated glass. Excellent documentation and includes owner's manual, tool kit, and data card copy from the Mercedes Benz classic center. We are proud to offer this incredible Mercedes-Benz 280SE Cabriolet to the most particular collector, investor or enthusiast who appreciates this legendary German marque.

History

Mercedes-Benz's elegant Paul Bracq-designed W111 made its debut in 1959 and was produced, in its many variations, through 1971. Among the most desirable variations were the two-door models—the 280 SE Cabriolet and Coupe—which were expensive, virtually hand-built automobiles in the great tradition of German craftsmanship. The acres of wood trim throughout the interior were all genuine solid hardwood, accented by the gentle use of brightwork; the leather upholstery was thick and comfortable, and both the ride quality and handling were (and continue to be) superb. Perhaps unsurprisingly, these cars rapidly became favorites of international socialites and celebrities, and they were frequently seen cruising in all of the world's most posh destinations.
