1971 280se

Located in the San Francisco Bay area of California

71 280SE


M130.980 I6 2.8L
Auto trans w/floor shift
New radiator
new tires
Odometer reads 80k
A/C (not installed)
Interior worn on top of back seat but otherwise no rips or tears
straight body-some minor surface rust

I bought this car in early December 2006 as a "running project" for me and my 18yo son. He has decided to buy a truck instead. I have never owned a Mercedes automobile and don't know too much about thern. I'm simply trying to sell it for what I paid for it, and have no real interest in it any further.

I do like the looks of this car, and it really does drive nicely. It does need some TLC. Vacuum leak, trans leak, rough cold starting and idle, belts and hoses to replace, etc. It is a complete car however, and is currently registered until May 2007.

Please let me know if you have any interest. I'll do my best to answer any questions as well.

Oops! Should have mentioned that I'm asking $1500 USD or best offer for this car.
