1969 Mercedes-Benz 280 SE Cabriolet
AUCTION RESULTS: Lot was Sold at a price of $55,000

180bhp, 2,778 cc single overhead cam, inline six-cylinder engine with Bosch mechanical fuel injection, four-speed automatic transmission, independent front suspension with double wishbones, coil springs, and stabilizer bar, independent rear suspension with swing axles, radius arms, and coil springs, and four-wheel power assisted hydraulic disc brakes. Wheelbase: 108.3"

This particular 1969 280 SE Cabriolet remained with a member of the original purchaser's family until the current owner acquired it in February of 2008. Removed from long-term storage and displaying approximately 32,000 miles, the car was sympathetically refurbished as needed. A bare metal refinish in the original black color revealed an extremely solid and straight body, and the top covering was replaced with custom tailored German fabric in the original grey color, while both the horsehair padding and headliner remain original. The attractive dark green leather interior is original and remains in excellent condition, as is the carpeting, again factory original with the exception of the heel pad, which was replaced. The Cabriolet also benefits from thorough mechanical attention, with the Mercedes Heritage Center providing nearly all of the required parts.

The current owner reports spending in excess of $30,000 to ensure that this 280 SE performs as well and as reliably as it looks. It also comes complete with an amazing assortment of original documents, including the window sticker, data cards, metal warranty plate, and a plastic envelope with a full complement of printed materials that were supplied with the car when new. It stands more-than-ready for many miles of open-air driving enjoyment.
