1968 280se - Intro

Hey guys

Bought this car 4 months ago, it's been my daily since day 1 and has been a super nice car to own and drive.

After the 1st service I got done I've done a few other bits and pieces - including new rear trailing arm bushes/coil/plugs/wires/mirror glass/some rubber bits (missing hood buffers etc) plus I'm about to do the brakes/fuel lines/etc etc

1968 Mercedes Benz 280se Straight 6

Runs strong, Cold AC, power steering, power windows, 2 Tone MBTex Interior. Looks to have new carpet's

Thanks guys!

Thanks, Its Anthracite Grey according to the paint code in the engine bay.

It has been repainted at some point in its life and they did a really nice job it seems

thanks guys.

I saw one of these in this exact colour about 3 years ago drive past me back at home in Australia and I just fell in love with it. So when i moved here and saw this for sale I couldn't resist.

got a heap of parts just arrive from Classic Center... all the brake and fuel line parts, rear axle mount bushing, horn ring, side reflector, hood pad so a bunch of things to do.

i want to give it a really good detail once all the new parts are on too. inside and outside and I'd also like to get a bottle of touch up paint made up.

The view over the hood in that shot is classic. I can almost feel what it was like cruising into the evening that day. Thanks for sharing!
