Description

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 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 interior 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 were the last hand built Benz from the famous Sindelfingen factory and ooze timeless class and sophistication.
