1969 MERCEDES 280 SE
Mythical sedan of the 1960’s Designed by Paul Bracq Car in its original condition British registration title Vehicle on temporary importation Chassis n° 10801812 023183 The Mercedes-Benz W111 series appeared in 1959, replacing the ageing Adenauer and 300S designed after the war and marketed in the early 1950s. The Paul Bracqdesigned line also evolved the «Fintail» styles. In 1961, the range was extended with a coupé and a cabriolet, in addition to the 4-door saloon. Quality and perfection of manufacture, refinement of the interior and the 6-cylinder engine: so many assets which define wonderfully this series of the manufacturer with the Star. At almost five meters in length, this remarkable luxury car is still a formidable Mercedes with a very modern driving experience. The concept of a luxury saloon car for long journeys is still very successful today and it was this 280 SE that almost caused it. A Mercedes certificate of authenticity indicates that our example rolled off the production line on 14th February 1969, in the «Midnight Blue» colour that it still has today. It was first registered in the UK in 2004 at Mr C. In 2006, the car was sold to Mr M. and then to its current owner, who bought it in 2009. The record of British invoices and roadworthiness tests goes back to 2004 and provides evidence of regular maintenance until 2010. The car is now in a good state of preservation. However, a general overhaul will be necessary to get the car back on the road safely. Traces of corrosion, sometimes perforating, are visible both on the bodywork and on the underbody. Mechanically, the car starts and runs well and the four-speed automatic transmission works well. The comfort is optimal, the suspension is soft and the navy blue interior is in a nice state of preservation. The paint of this car seems to have been redone decades ago and offers a very interesting patina. This beautiful sedan with its Paul Bracq design is an interesting car for a DIY enthusiast who will gradually restore it to its former glory
