  • No American car of the era could match the new Mercedes’ mix of technology and quality. Fully independent coil-spring suspension and four-wheel disc brakes meant that ride and handling with the long-wheelbase chassis were thoroughly modern. Still, unlike a car of the 21st century, the look was completely distinctive and completely Mercedes-Benz, or “fabulously handsome,” as Road & Track called it.

     

    Sumptuous accommodations for four included a fully lined top in the traditional stacked German cabriolet manner. The framework of the convertible top was concealed from view by a complete interior headliner; each top required more than 16 hours of hand labor. On average, only 13 cars per week were built, with Mercedes-Benz producing just 1,232 examples between 1969 and 1971, and of those, only 200 were produced with the desirable low-grille. This was Mercedes-Benz’s final truly hand-built automobile.

     

    The magnificent 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SE ‘Low-Grille’ Cabriolet featured here is finished in stunning factory-correct Deep Burgundy over a gorgeous Cognac leather interior. This incredible motorcar has been meticulously maintained and only driven 46,416 miles from new. This example is one of only 200 desirable low-grille Cabriolets produced and is among the finest examples to come to market in years. Fitted with nearly every available option, including air conditioning, automatic floor shifter, Zebrano wood trim, and Becker Grand Prix radio, this spectacular investment-grade Mercedes-Benz 280SE Cabriolet has just been released from a prominent collection where it has been beautifully maintained and preserved, a recent service has been performed, and it is now ready for its next caretaker. We are proud to offer this incredible five-passenger 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SE ‘Low-Grille Cabriolet to the most demanding collector, investor, or enthusiast who understands and appreciates the investment potential of this extremely rare and desirable model.

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months


    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or [email protected]
