MODEL HISTORY The 280 SE was part of the W108 family of Mercedes-Benz, which was produced from 1965 through to 1972. The line was an update of the predecessor W111 and W112 fintail saloons. The W108 was premiered at the Frankfurt Auto Show in 1965.... The initial model lineup consisted of three models; the 250S, 250SE, and 300SE, as well as a sole W109, the 300SEL. Engines for the new car were carried over from the previous generation, but enlarged and refined. During the winter of 1967/68 Daimler launched its new generation family of vehicles, called ‘Stroke Eight' for the model year. The headline was the new W114 and W115 family, built on a new chassis, but the existing models were given an upgrade with a single engine, the M130 2778cc. The W108 now included the 280S and 280SE, with production starting in November 1967. These replaced the 250S, 250SE and 300SE, however production of export-designated 250S would continue until March 1969. In January 1968, the model line was joined by yet another car, the 280SEL. The car had the longer wheelbase of the W109, but lacked the pneumatic suspension and other features of the 300SEL. Hence the chassis code remained W108. More

EXTERIOR The Tunis Beige paintwork remains to a nice standard throughout, with a subtle metallic flake. Having received paint at some point in the past the finish is very presentable, bearing few age-related marks and imperfections. Undoubtedly the... car is in great condition given its age, having resided in a dry climate since 1994 as part of a private collection. On close inspection the brightwork retains an excellent polished finish, with all light clusters free from any cracks or moisture. More

HISTORY FILE First registered on 15th January 1972 the car was supplied new by Woking Motors Ltd, Hersham. In December that year it was sold as a late used vehicle by Walton Lodge Garage Ltd, Walton-on-Thames, to its second owner. Mr Timmis drove the... Mercedes up until November 1993, when it was then passed on to its third keeper, having been serviced on nine occasions. The car underwent its fourth and final change of ownership in 1994 when it was exported to Marbella to remain as part of a private collection. The Mercedes has recently arrived back in the UK still wearing its dealer-supplied registration plates. Present in the history file are all the original handbooks as well as the dealer-supplied Maintenance booklet. There are also various period documents to include old MOT certificates, the original warranty slip, and instructions for the Blaupunkt radio. Present also are two spare keys plus a key to an AA phone box. More

EQUIPMENT Blaupunkt cassette player, Electric aerial, Front and rear armrests, Horn push ring, Lockable glove compartment, Cigarette lighter, Ash trays, Interior lighting, Spare wheel, Toolkit. INTERIOR The black MB-Tex upholstery is in excellent or...der and has certainly stood the test of time. Arguably more durable than leather, the fabric is present with no marks, rips, or tears to note. In fact there is almost no wear at all. Real wood trim embellishes the fascia and window surrounds, remaining almost entirely blemish-free. In the footwells the carpets are also in fine order, having been protected by a set of rubber overmats until very recently. What's more the dash is free from any marking or distortion, and the rear luggage compartment remains solid and without corrosion. More
