1970 MERCEDES BENZ 280SE “LOW GRILLE” 6-CYLINDER CABRIOLET
Finished in a handsome Dark Blue over Tan leather with a Dark Blue top, this 280SE was among the very last of the hand-built Mercedes. A mere 13 280SE series cars per week passed through the hands of Mercedes’ artisans, and this car is among the rarest of them with only 400 “Low Grille” 6-cylinder cabriolets known to have been produced. The Cabriolet features a padded folding top that alone required 16 hours of hand labor to complete. By most counts, less than 40 percent of the 400 cars made were imported to the U.S. By comparison, there were over 1,200 3.5 cabriolets produced over the same period. Today, no more than a few hundred of these cars remain in existence and far fewer are in a condition this exceptional. With its flared fenders and wider grille, this car is identical in every way to a 3.5, save for the 3.5 badge on the deck-lid. However, this car is even smoother than the 3.5 having been equipped with the 300SL derived 2.8 liter 6-cylinder. The lithe, torque filled engine imparts more responsive handing and feel as compared to the 3.5, further enhancing the driving experience. Costing approximately twice as much new as a contemporary 280SL, every aspect of the 280SE is of a completely high caliber. In SE trim, the “E” stood for “Einspritzung” or fuel injection, with output rising to 180 horsepower. Capable of speeds approaching 130 mph, the 280 SE utilized a fully independent suspension that made for taut, responsive handling. Standard equipment included, power steering, 4-wheel disc power brakes, power windows, and 4-speed automatic transmission. The Burl Walnut, chrome, and leather surround you in timeless luxury. The switch gear has that solid, reassuring Teutonic engagement which cannot be duplicated. While it is hand-built, it is first and foremost a Mercedes Benz; it boasts rock solid durability, its drivability and safety are second to none, and every part of this gorgeous car is still available for replacement. This magnificent vehicle has been in the hands of only one owner for the past 20 years and as evidenced by its amazing condition, it has been properly stored and maintained that entire period. We are proud to offer this truly investment grade automobile to the discriminating collector, investor or enthusiast. Very few Mercedes command the kind of exclusivity and legend afforded to the 280SE Cabriolet, making this a truly investment grade automobile. Please contact one of our expert sales consultants for more information. They will be happy to give you a complete walk-around, supply you with a more detailed description, and answer any questions you may have.
