Exterior color for w108 with cognac interior?

Hello everyone,

I am wondering what color you think would look best on my 280. It's got the cognac interior with dark brown dash. I really don't have any preferences just looking for opinions. I do want it to be an original MB color not some fancy metallic PPG paint lol Off to do battle with the 140...radiator replacement, oil change, and re-wire the new electric fans. Great... Wish me luck!

Cheers,
Ricky

My 1973 is the original dark olive (291) with cognac leather(250) interior.

That is stunning! Do you have any more pictures? My 280 was originally the metallic green with the clearcoat (forgetting the name and number at the moment), but I don't want it metallic when it's all done. I really love the olive it's very pretty!

Thank you. It's a terrific period color which always elicits compliments. Here are a few more.

I have a 280SEL with cognac interior and 904 DunkelBlau exterior. I love the dark blue.

The DunkelBlau is also very nice. This is what I was worried about--getting tied between a couple of colors Lol. Thanks for sharing the pictures guys I really appreciate it! It's very hard to find pictures of these cars. Do you know of any websites that just have pictures of the 108s/109s?
