For Sale: 1971 Mercedes 280 SE 4.5L - $3200 OBO
This 4.5L V8 is a diamond in the rough! This is an original California car located in Mountain View, CA! I'm only the 3rd owner (1st was a little old lady, 2nd a college professor).
Since owning the car I've put in a new rear differential, new battery, a new alternator & voltage regulator. I don't like dishonesty nor would I try to fool an educated audience like the one here, so...the car does have two small leaks: the power steering fluid and a small leak coming from the transmission (my mechanic has looked long & hard for these and still cannot find them). The odometer shows 93,000+ miles and stopped working a few months ago.
The interior leather looks GREAT (one tiny tear in the back seat & driver's seatbelt needs replacing) and the dashboard does not have any cracks in the leather or wood. There is one dent on the front (created by the first owner), passenger side of the car created by the 1st owner...other than that the paint is original and looks like new. All power windows work except the rear, driver's side.
As much as I want to keep this car I cannot as it is difficult to restore while living in an apartment complex and therefore I'm only trying to recoup what I've already invested (purchase price, repairs, etc.). Make my loss your gain! I can send more pictures upon request, but you should really see the car in person. $3500 OBO.
Feel free to email me any questions you have.
Interested parties only please...NO SCAMMERS! We can arrange payment and pickup methods when we've agreed on a sale.
