  • The incredible 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SE 3.5 Coupe featured here is finished in the stunning, factory correct color combination of Silver-Grey over an impeccably kept Blue leather interior. This particular example was delivered new to its first owner in June 1972 by Star Motor Cars of Houston, Texas and remained in the hands of the original owner for nearly 20 years. Since that time the 280SE has been meticulously maintained and sparingly driven by collector-level ownership, even going as far as winning first place at a Mercedes-Benz Club of America concours event recently. An incredibly low 41,463 miles are present on the odometer; a number which is documented actual by the accompanying service records dating back to when the car was first delivered in 1972.

    In addition to the outstanding service history an incredible assortment of original books and documentation accompany this 1971 Mercedes-Benz today, including the owner’s manual, original VIN stamped warranty book, original service book, original took kit & jack, fuel fill records from the original owner, spare keys, original Becker radio books & warranty information, and more. The numbers-matching 3.5 liter SOHC V8 engine is still in place as verified by the accompanying decoded Mercedes-Benz Data Card copy. With such incredibly low mileage, outstanding documentation, originality and numbers matching provenance this 280SE 3.5 Coupe is one of the best examples of its kind to be found on the market today and will certainly bring many years of enjoyment to its future caretaker. We are proud to offer this outstanding example of a Mercedes-Benz 280SE 3.5 Coupe, from the final year of production, to the most astute collector, investor or enthusiast who appreciates documented low mileage and accompanying documentation. Classic cars have proven to be among the most resilient and rewarding investments in recent years with the Historic Automobile Group Index (HAGI) jumping 39% in 2013, 16% in 2014 and 17% in 2015 while posting gains of 467% over the last 10 years.

    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 credit@schmitt.com
