1970 Mercedes-Benz 280 SEL

Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280 SEL. Finished in Black over Cognac leather interior, it's a timeless combination that exudes understated elegance. This example has always been meticulously cared for and it shows. One repaint in the correct color to a very nice standard; body is straight and solid and the undercarriage is in excellent, rust-free original condition. New Uniroyal whitewalls on factory steel wheels with hubcaps. Mileage, as just over 45k, is believed to be original. Current owner purchased the car a few years ago out of an estate in California from the long-term previous owner.

Interior is completely original and very well preserved, aside from a few small tears in the front seat leather (which is all original). Excellent door panels, headliner, carpets, dash and wood. All climate control sliders (and illumination -- see photos) are working properly. Cold A/C. Original Becker Europa works as it should, including the lights.

Exceptionally smooth and well-tuned overhead cam 2.8 liter inline six with Bosch mechanical fuel injection. Starts effortlessly both cold and hot, runs strong with no hesitation or flat spots throughout the rev range. Four-speed automatic transmission shifts as it should. All service is up to date and the car has no known needs -- A/C was recently overhauled with new compressor, hoses, receiver-drier and expansion valve. Recent Bilsteins, tie rods, center link, brake work.

Owners and admirers of the W108 know it to be superbly engineered, a refreshing reminder of the days when Mercedes-Benz built cars to a standard, not a price. Books, tools and records included with the sale. For more information about this 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SEL for sale at Motorcar Studio in Atlanta, please call 404-692-5250.
