Just picked up my '69 280se
After a few weeks of waiting, I finally picked up my 1969 Mercedes 280se sedan. I immediately fell in love after the first viewing.
Today the seller provided me the 2 keys and the 3rd valet key, complete with original key chain. Inside the glove box, I found the original owner's manual, original a/c manual, maintenance book with every maintenance listed from '69.
I was nervous having to immediately drive it 105 miles home, but it handled the trip just well, receiving numerous stares and thumbs up as I coasted down the highway, from Sacramento to San Francisco. It even handled rush hour traffic much much better than expected.
I only snapped one while driving, well, while stopped for gas; more pics soon.
