Trade-in car. This Mercedes-Benz W108 280S must be without doubt the definition of a real survivor. This model was supplied from new by the German Essen based Mercedes-Benz dealership in 1969. Since its importation to the Netherlands in 1999 it has only had two further owners. We see many cars come and go, so it is rare we come across such an original and well maintained example as this 280S. The majority of the 291 colour number paintwork is still original, the same applying to the car’s interior which exactly has developed the right amount of patina. Not perfect maybe, but certainly not due for refurbishment, thanks to the years of excellent maintenance. The owners of this S-class have always treated this car with the upmost TLC, as the many invoices, dating form 1997 to 2019, show. These invoices are consistent with the service book entry stamps. The full service history of this Mercedes-Benz 280S is known. Not only is the car very original on the outside, it beating heart is also still original, making this a matching numbers example. Due to the simple fact this car has never lacked anything when it came to maintenance, the car gives a very refined drive with complimentary gear change and everything in good working order. The accompanying documentation is as impressive as the car itself. It has the complete car wallet including the all-important Mercedes-Benz “Datenkarte”. The previously mentioned invoices and a 108/109 series book complete the set. This wonderful Mercedes-Benz 280S underlines once more jus what Mercedes quality and good maintenance can achieve!
