They are great cars, I myself have a 280s, great too drive, very reliable, and the look is just stunning. So if you are thinking on buying a 60's sedan, this is propably the right car for you.
But when that first is said it ain't gona reach astronomical prizes. The 280se ain't a very rare vintage Mercedes, so if the restauration costs are gonna be high, you just might wanna buy a car that looks good in the first place. Atleast if you are gonna think economical.
But that said, nothing is more fun than to restore your own Mercedes! And the parts-ability for these cars are still very good, and if you search around a bit, much parts can be found at a resonably prizes.
So too sum it up; If your thinking with your wallet you just might stear away. But if your thinking with your heart this might be the right car for you!
Anyway, a w108 Mercedes in great shape is a very nice car! Good luck!
