Viewing by appointment only
This 1971 Mercedes 280SE/8 celebrates its 50th birthday this year and is in truly remarkable condition.
Finished in Horizon blue with parchment tex interior the vehicle was supplied new through Mercedes-Benz agents Goodliffe Garages in South Croydon, Surrey and has had a total of 5 registered keepers to date.
This vehicle is best described as an unrestored example which oozes originality and gives you an instant feeling of how a car looked and drove back in the 1970’s.
Driven only 25,612 miles from new, this is highlighted when you look at the interior, woodwork, engine bay and underside originality as well as the finer details such as the sharpness and original fitment of the window frame aluminium surrounds, this is car that has only ever been maintained, owned and stored correctly.
Know to us since 2009, we have had the pleasure of selling the vehicle to its last two owners respectively and maintaining it at no expense spared when needed, the vehicle is in exceptionally good condition and does not represent any of the common issues that low mileage 50 years old vehicles wear and suffer from.
Now on sale at John Haynes we believe this W108 280SE/8 to be very much one of a kind in terms of mileage, history and condition, the calibre of this vehicle should satisfy collectors and enthusiasts alike.
The vehicle comes fully serviced with a fresh MoT certificate for its history file ensuring it is totally on point for its next custodian.
Viewing and inspection are welcome and available both in our showroom and within our workshop.
