Exterior: This car had a major restoration in 2009 and at this time the car was taken completely in to pieces. The body was sandblasted and some body parts where replaced. It was then painted in original colour, all rubber on the car where replaced with Mercedes original parts. Chrome parts are in very good condition. At this time there where many new parts fitted to the car. Such and new headlights, new tyres with thin white stripe, carpets etc.
Interior: This car still has the original leather and it is in fantastic condition! The colour is “mulberry” and it is dark red that makes a wonderful contrast to the white exterior. The carpets are new and the wood panels are in beautiful original condition. Seatbelts front and rear, electric sunroof, manual windows and white steering wheel. The trunk compartment is super clean and has the original Mercedes rubber carpet in perfect condition. Original spare and jack.
Engine: The engine has been out of the car, cleaned and refurbished on the outside fitted with new gaskets. This car has only 120.000km from new so no need for internal parts. Many parts on the outside of the engine where replaced or refurbished. Gearbox was fitted with new oil and filter and final drive in perfect state with normal sound. Starts very easy both hot and cold and has very good power. Everything that is electric in the car is working and the wiring looks good.
History: This car was sold new here in Sweden 1970-06-10. First owner had the car until October 2003 and the second owner Mr Skogström had the car until May 2009 when it came to Mr Loren that had the car restored to former glory. Then i bought the car in 2019 and had all four brake callipers rebuilt, replaced brake hoses and had it serviced. After this I took it trough technical inspection here in Sweden 2020-01 and everything was perfect. It is now in a wonderful condition and I would not hesitate to drive anywhere with this car. And with power steering and automatic gearbox this is a very easy Mercedes classic to drive. If you are looking to buy a Mercedes 280SE 3.5 W111 Coupe you should consider this one.
