The last of the Sindelfingen hand-built Mercedes Benz models
Factory fitted Behr air conditioning
Becker Mexico with Hirschmann electric aerial
Finished in Brilliant Silver with Cognac Leather interior
The ultimate touring cabriolet
Introduced in late 1969 as a prestige model to supplant the somewhat underpowered six-cylinder 280SE, the V8-powered, W111-Series 280SE 3.5 in both coupe and convertible form was of immediate appeal to wealthy customers who were accustomed to having the best quality and workmanship available in an automobile.
This is, without doubt, the most beautiful post-war Cabriolet Mercedes Benz has built to present. Finished in Brilliant Silver with Cognac leather interior and Burr Walnut woodwork throughout. Fitted with Automatic transmission, Behr air conditioning, Electric windows, Becker Mexico with Hirschman electric aerial and new White Wall tyres.
Delivered new to the USA and resided in Florida prior to DD Classics acquisition.
Recent restoration works included a complete repaint in Mercedes Silver and it has also benefited from the restoration of the interior back to a full, Cognac Leather OEM specification by marque specialists D-Class. The extensive works did not stop there, the chrome and brightwork and the Burr Walnut woodwork were also beautifully restored.
These cars were the last, truly hand built Benz models from the famous Mercedes Benz Sindelfingen factory and ooze timeless class and sophistication.
