WELCOME!!!

You meant a 280se 3.5? I don't know if yard still have these classics. Check eBay. Some of these parts crop up every now and then.

Go to the closest dealer and you can get one there. Most likely it will have to be ordered. Yours must be a gray market car.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant

I dont know much about the car. The production date says 2/70. The car just came from texas and I am fixing it. I got her to run and she runs good. I sanded the body down there is some body filler in the rear and passenger side 1/4 panel. It is blue with a tan interior and the car also has a sun roof. I am thinking about selling the car. So if anybody might be interested in a project car shoot me a pm.

Your 3.5 and a 4.5 are identical in cooling system parts. Just get a neck off a 4.5 of that similar vintage. An easy one. It is a 4-door?

If you've got a coupe, it's a fairly uncommon vehicle and probably worth restoration either to drive or sell.
