The ultimate touring cabriolet
Exclusively featured in May issue of 'Classic & Sports Car' by Martin Buckley

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 Clark Gables favourite colour combination of ‘423’ Dark Tobacco coachwork with the two-tone Cognac and Burr Walnut woodwork throughout. Fitted with column gearchange gearbox, Behr air conditioning, Becker Mexico with Hirschman electric aerial and white wall tyres. Delivered new to the USA and resided in Florida prior to when DD Classics acquired. Having benefited from the restoration of the interior back to OEM specification by marque specialists D Class, the work did not stop there the chrome and woodwork were also beautifully restored as well.  These cars where the last hand built Benz from the famous Sindelfingen factory and ooze timeless class and sophistication. This particular example has just been exclusively featured in May's Classic & Sports Car by automotive journalist Martin Buckley.
