Mercedes 280 SE 3.5l V8
Once again we managed to find a real Cool Classic. A Mercedes 280 SE W108 3.5 liter eight cylinder in very good condition with a beautiful color combination.
The W108 was in the mid-sixties the successor to the W111 Baureihe and was in turn succeeded by the W116 (first official S-class) in were eventually built.
Our Dunkel Blaue W108 is apart from its condition (which we describe as excellent), fully documented. She began her life in St. Gallen, Switzerland on April 18, 1972. 27 years later she came to the Netherlands, where she is still owned by her first Dutch owner. He in turn completely restored the car 10 years ago and was recently technically checked and equipped with an LPG G3 installation.
The important options of the 280SE are; automatic transmission, power steering, heated rear window, spotlights and armrests both front and rear. We can also say with certainty that the mileage is correct, because in addition to the Betriebsanleitung, Abgasdocument, we also have the Wartungsheft with 13 entries. In addition, we have 6 Dutch A.P.K. reports that further support the mileage.
The V8 block delivers even for today’s traffic more than enough race horses (200) and sounds wonderful. Not only the exterior impresses, but also the technique fits seamlessly.
We think that this W108 with its condition, documentation and technique can be interesting not only for enthusiasts, but also for investors! the late seventies. Only 11,309 units of this 280 SE 3.5 version were eventually built.I'm interested in this object
