Immaculate 78 280CE w/85k miles FS

SOLD



I bought this car from an 84 yo German woman in Portland, OR just over a year ago and have spared no expense to make it perfect. I am only selling it to pursue an electric car project. I'd love to make this electric, but it's just too damned original to alter!

85k document miles w/ receipts going back decades
ALL in perfect working order: PS, PW, ACC, CC, Becker Mexico, Sunroof, etc
Paint is excellent for it's age
Interior is excellent for ANY age! Perfect burled walnut and MBTex
Brand new whitewalls with matching wheel covers (bundts included)
Leather steering wheel (original included)

New in last year:

Aluminum bodied ACC servo
ACC amp
Tires
Passenger window regulator (front)
Passenger window guide (rear)
Grille badge
Headlight grills
Trunk carpeted mat (still has perfect rubber mat)
Battery w/ warranty
Lug bolts
Washer nozzles
Tires

Car needs NOTHING, and can be driven anywhere. All mechanical service has been done as recommended.

I can't say enough about how amazingly clean and straight this coupe is. Get thumbs up and comments everywhere I go. Lots of pics in link in sig line.

Car is always garaged in Indianapolis and has not seen salted roads. Absolutely no rust or body damage!

$12,000

the bag and leather wheel came out of a 190E.. it's a smaller diameter than the original w123 wheel and feels much nicer in the hands! I have the original wheel, but the horn pad wouldn't fit in the new wheel (slightly different shape and mounting locations).. the bag is there, but obviously not connected to anything. Horn works as normal!

Do you have more info on its history? Was the car originally purchased from the woman in Portland?

What is the color code?... in some of the pics, the color looks different than the others. It appears to be Blue (902) or Pastel Blue (922).

I have the original ID plate, the car was bought in Portland on 6/22/78 by Patrick Smith and stayed in Portland until last year when I drove it to Indy. I have a stack of receipts going back decades and all the original books/manuals. The German couple (the Nimmermans) purchased the car in July of 87 with 42,000 miles on it. She sold the car to me because her husband had passed away and she no longer drove. The paint code is Graublau - 906.
