1984 280SEL AMG factory 5sp

Euro spec (of course..).

Arctic white on blue.

Bad, car was in the front, cross member has been repaired, radiator and condenser replaced. Good used hood, but needs paint as does the chrome for the front bumper.
Needs an engine, looks as though the block has a crack.
Car will run, just pisses out coolant... :-/

The Good..
Recaro Ideal C's, AMG Gen I steering wheel, full AMG body kit, front spoiler in Good conidtion, later Gen II rear spoiler.

Has two 16' AMG Penta's. Other two were damaged and are NLA.

Full AMG suspension/springs shocks etc..

No engine mods

Given the value of the seats, wheel, body kit, suspension, transmission and pedal box I'm asking 3500 for the car.

Also equipped w/ the Webasto Pre Heater.

Please, serious inquires only. I'll snap some fresh photos this morning and post them up ASAP.

Fair enough, they're are a TOUGH dig, and usually equipped w/ 4sp's...making for a Ton of RPM's on the highway The 5sp in this car is as rare as hens teeth and transforms the drive-ability of the car.

Thanks so very much for your reply! I am sure they are hard to find, but I have several 280 series with the manual trans and love them!! I wanted to find a long body car with the 5sp to drive. I appreciate any help you can give

Hi

I am the one who emailed you wanting a 280se or 280sel with a 5sp, it seems as you know alot about these cars, so in your opinion how often do you see one and how hard do you think it is gonna be to find one? Thanks so much for your time

John,

This is the Only one I've ever seen first hand. The 4sp manual 280's do pop up from time to time, but they are usually SE's, not SEL's.

This car, w/ these options and being an AMG...I've never seen one like it...so in short, it's hard to find!
