Description for Mercedes-Benz 200-Series 1971

1971 Mercedes 280SE 3.5 Coupe: Mercedes-Benz model nomenclature in the 1960s is difficult to follow once the tailfins disappear. The W108 and W109 family of sedans can mostly be recognized by the grille and front fenders  from the 1961 W111 design, ith cathedral headlights in the European versions, hich were replaced by vertically stacked 5-inch lights in the U.S. Mercedes-Benz's 250 series replaced the 220 and 230 six-cylinder models, nd served as  the company's sensible sedan, ith subdued design, eatherette interior, urable construction, nd decent performance. The rear fins went away in 1965, nd the new body was longer and lower. A new 2.5-liter 7-main bearing, 28-hp,  six-cylinder engine appeared in the 250S and 250SE sedans and was replaced in 1968 by the 2.8-liter variation which generated 180 hp. The 280S, 80SE and 280SEL - "L" is the long-wheelbase version - all have Bosch fuel injection and  gained four-wheel disc brakes. The hood and grille were lower by a couple of inches for 1969giving the car a more modern appearance. A series of handsome W111 280SE coupes and convertibles were made in parallel, ith the same engine  advances and a 3.5-liter V-8 were available from 1969 to 1971.  

This 1971 Mercedes 280SE 3.5 Coupe is a Euro spec manual transmission example of the stately W111 class Mercedes. The car is very original inside and out and benefits from over $10k in recent updates and repairs including refurbished  suspension, ew fuel pump and hoses, nd much more detailed below. The Mercedes-Benz Data Card verifies that the car retains its numbers matching engine and factory options including sliding sunroof. These cars are an appealing mix of  old and new, ombining the last iteration of the Fintail body style first seen in the 1950s with the new M116 SOHC V8 engine that saw use into the 1990s. The car was originally Metallic Beige and was repainted in the current off white  some years ago. The exterior is in very well preserved condition with original body panels. The body is straight with no evidence of any accident damage in the past, nd the paint finish is in excellent condition overall. The extensive  brightwork is all intact and nicely polished with no pitting. Original wheels with body colored hubcaps are installed and complement the formal styling perfectly. The unrestored interior has some age related wear but is still very  presentable for a driver. Cognac leather seats have some discoloration and minor cracking and tears. The wood on the dashboard and A-pillars also shows some wear. The original carpets, oor panels, eadliner, nd upper dash are all in  good condition. Notable interior options include front bucket seats, liding sunroof, nd power windows. A period correct Becker Grand Prix radio is installed and works well. The ivory steering wheel was recently replaced with a good  used OEM unit and is correct for the car. The odometer currently shows just over 9k miles and is believed to have turned over once. The car is equipped with a four-speed manual transmission and limited slip differential, etting it  apart as more of a driver's car than the typical Mercedes coupe. The Mercedes runs and drives extremely well, aving been recently given an extensive overhaul to address any known mechanical issues. Receipts are available upon request  for over $10k in maintenance work performed in the last 12 months. There are no known mechanical needs and the car is ready to drive any distance upon purchase. The undercarriage is solid and rust free with the factory undercoating intact. A small area of the floorboard has been  pushed in, ossibly due to a misplaced jack. The only known corrosion was a small amount of rust near the front jack point on both sides, hich was recently repaired correctly and is no longer an issue. A copy of the Mercedes-Benz Data  Card is included with the sale, long with invoices for the recent repairs and updates. This is an attractive original driver that combines classic Mercedes styling with a strong V8 engine, nd the manual gearbox is a rare bonus for  this model. Current book values place this 280SE between $80,600 and $149,000. Hagerty's valuation has already jumped up $10k in the last 2 weeks we've owned the Mercedes. These 280SEs are appreciating daily and one any collector should wisely obtain now for only $89,988!
