Classic Mercedes-Benz 280 SE for Sale

In 1971, this Mercedes-Benz 280SE 3.5 was delivered to its first owner, based in Philadelphia (US). In 1993, the car was registered under another name, but it would appear that the car remained in the same family. This was also the time when it was decided to switch from the original colour, Dunkeloliv (291), to burgundy red. In 2010, with 80,627 miles on the clock, the car was brought to Europe and came into the hands of a Dutch aficionado. He ordered a major overhaul of the mechanicals and invested some 22,500 euros in these works. The engine, the undercarriage, the breaks, the gearbox, everything really was revised to bring the mechanicals of the car into top condition. The invoices provide a detailed overview of the work that was carried out. The operation included the purchase of a set of crown cap wheel rims, so these alloy wheels were not delivered ex factory, but they do match the style of that era and are supplied separately. After the technical revision, not much driving was done: just a few thousands of kilometres. In 2016, the car was passed into the hands of the current owner, again a Dutch collector. Even though the burgundy red bodywork was actually still immaculate, it was his wish to respray the body back to its original dark green colour. The interior of the car was never touched and is in a fantastic condition. The air conditioning has recently been revised as well to bring it up to date with current standards. A large file containing information about the car, recent and historic invoices as well as original instruction booklets will come with this beautiful car.

In 1971 werd deze Mercedes-Benz 280SE 3.5 geleverd aan de eerste eigenaar in Philadelphia (US). In 1993 werd de auto overgeschreven op een andere naam maar naar verluid bleef de auto in dezelfde familie. Er werd toen ook besloten om de oorspronkelijke kleur, Dunkeloliv (291), te veranderen in bordeau-rood. In 2010 werd de auto met 80.627mls. op de teller naar Europa gehaald en kwam in handen van een Nederlandse liefhebber. Hij was het die de volledige techniek onder handen liet nemen. Voor ruim 22.500 Euro werd er aan de auto versleuteld. De motor, het onderstel, de remmen, de versnellingsbak, eigenlijk alles werd onder handen genomen om de auto technisch in topconditie te krijgen. De rekeningen laten gedetailleerd alle werkzaamheden zien. Ook werd er een set “kroonkurk”-velgen aangeschaft. Deze lichtmetalen wielen werden dus niet origineel af fabriek op deze auto geleverd maar zijn wel period-correct en worden los bijgeleverd. Veel werd er na de technische revisie niet met de auto gereden, slechts enkele duizenden kilometers. In 2016 wisselde de auto naar de laatste eigenaar, ook een Nederlandse verzamelaar. Hoewel de donkerrode carrosserie eigenlijk nog onberispelijk was, was het zijn wens was om de carrosserie terug te spuiten in de oorspronkelijke originele donkergroene kleur. Het interieur van de auto is nog steeds “onaangeraakt” en verkeert in een geweldige staat. Ook de airconditioning werd onlangs gereviseerd en aangepast aan de huidige normen. Een groot dossier met informatie over deze prachtige auto, oude- en recente rekeningen en originele instructieboekjes worden bijgeleverd.
