As some of you know i have been looking for a se or sel 4.5.
Iv'e done some miles and seen some real rubbish and only one decent car.
I even flew to LA! To see a car which turned out to be not good at all
Anyway on my search i think iv'e found something special.
Its a 1968 280se 6cyl. I know its not what i was after, but this car has been garaged always. This is the original owner, original in every respect, paint, dash perfect, seats perfect, no one has really sat in the back he told me!
At 50k he told me he had the transmission replaced by mercedes because of some leak issue. He will show me all receipts and history.
Here is the kicker. Its only got 60k on it!! I have spoken to him and he appears totally genuine and real.
My question is more about the 6 vs the 8?
Is there a ton of difference? Performance wise. Also i have seen that some switch out the rear ends to help make the 6 better at higher speeds.
Other than the engine are there any other differences i should consider?
I would appreciate any input.
Im seeing the car this Saturday so i will let you know how i get on.
