Recipient of a two-year restoration, this 280 SE is presented in factory original colors with a host of desirable options. A truly exquisite car ready for enjoyment on the road or concours field.
Benefitting from a recent high-quality restoration, this 1969 280 SE Cabriolet is an impeccably presented example of Mercedes’ definitive luxury grand touring car. One of just 1,390 open-topped 280 SEs built over a four year run, this car is finished in its original and elegant color combination of Sand Beige (DB 467) over Dark Brown leather (248) with a complementary brown canvas soft top. The bare metal rotisserie restoration, performed between 2009 and 2011, is beautifully finished with outstanding paint quality and crisp, straight panels displaying excellent alignment and gaps. As part of the restoration, the extensive chrome and bright work was removed and fully restored, Fit and finish is exquisite, as one should expect from a properly restored 280 SE. It rides on factory original steel wheels with color-keyed full wheel covers, shod with Michelin narrow-band whitewall tires as is correct for the period.
In addition to the body, the interior has been fully restored with the upholstery, wood trim and brightwork finished to a high standard. An original high-spec US market car, it is equipped with numerous desirable options that include electric windows, Frigiking air conditioning, dual front arm rests and a Becker Grand Prix AM/FM radio with automatic aerial.
