This isn't a 280SE, right?

108014 vin, plus there weren't any in 66.

The reason I bring it up, is my 67 250SE was also listed as a 280, also had the 280SE badge back there, and was also a euro-import vehicle. Coincidence? Or was it common practice back then the swap out the badge on what is externally the same car?

There are a lot of interesting features on this car; cool driving and rear bumper lights, different license plate light, the rear window blind is very rare, interesting that the grill is large squares, in us they were small, is that correct? stick shift!, extra big red light on dash, leather seats, the dash is black but rest of interior is blue? same with the door caps, maybe they all cracked and were replaced? crank windows.

price seem high to me given condition, though euro stuff is cool!
