Mercedes-Benz 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280 History Specifications
Share On

Sold for $285,500 at 2021 Gooding & Company : Pebble Beach Concours Auction.
This 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280 SE 3.5 Cabriolet has received extensive restoration work, including a respray in the original exterior color Silver Grey Metallic (DB 180) and a re-trimmed black leather interior. In October 2017, Mercedes-Benz experts at Rudi & Company in BC performed comprehensive maintenance totaling over $15,000.

The 3,499cc SOHC V8 engine with Bosch Mechanical fuel injection is a proper type, but not original to the car. It has a four-speed automatic transmission, four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes, and an independent suspension with coil springs. It has a spare tire, lug wrench, and car cover, as well as an owner's pamphlet containing a copy of the factory data card, owner's manual, factory reference literature, Becker radio manual, and the 1968 Mercedes-Benz Dealer Directory.
