Year/Make/Model1972 280SE sedan 14500 original miles Rare European version
This 1972 Mercedes-Benz 280SE was imported to New Mexico from Germany in 1980 by the previous owner. We purchased the car seven years ago, and reports that the long-term owner used the car sparingly. Power comes from a 2.8L M130 inline-six mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission. Metric instrumentation and two-color taillights have been retained among other European market features. The front headlights were converted to stacked sealed-beam units, and side reflectors have been installed. WE have performed several services to make the car roadworthy, including fitting new tires, new spark plug wires, new brake hoses, and new fuel pump isolator shocks. This W108 is sold with a clean New Mexico title.
We have taken paint meter readings 5 mils of the Medium Blue (code 350H) paintwork, and states that readings were taken throughout. We have notes that the car was still fitted with original Continental tires when they acquired it seven years ago, though they have since been replaced
The car is equipped with US market headlights with stacked twin sealed beam lights and aftermarket side markers. A set of French market bumper overriders are fitted to the stock bumpers front and rear.
Mileage is shown as 23,400 kilometers (~14,500 miles) and is believed to be accurate.
Power comes from a 2.8L M130 inline-six mated to an automatic transmission. The 2.8L inline-six features Bosch D-Jet fuel injection. When we acquired the car seven years ago they installed new spark plug wires, fuel pump shocks and brake hoses to make the car roadworthy. No modifications are said to be present, and the seller states that the original banding clamps are still in place
