1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SE 3.5 Cabriolet

In the early 1970s, Mercedes-Benz built what many believe was the finest automobile in the world. For the buyers who wanted wind in their hair, there was no finer choice than the 280SE 3.5 Cabriolet, which, combined with the powerful 3.5-liter V-8, was the fastest, most sumptuous, and most expensive convertible at a Mercedes-Benz dealership. This Cabriolet offered here is in exceptional condition and is finished in the attractive color combination of Silver Blue with dark blue interior. It has been the subject of a comprehensive restoration and is ready for its next owner to show or use in driving tours. Virtually every aspect of the car has been refurbished or replaced, from the varnished wood veneers on the dashboard to the dark blue convertible top.

It was desirably equipped when new with the sportier floor-shifted automatic transmission, front bucket seats with folding armrests, a Becker radio, and electric windows; all of which it retains today. All of the brightwork was replated during the restoration and shines well today. This is truly a splendid 3.5 Cabriolet that would be the ideal entrant for a wide variety of automotive events, or could also be used as a fun weekend car.
1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SE 3.5 Cabriolet will be offered on July 18, 2015 by Auctions America at its Santa Monica Sale. The car is estimated at $300,000 – $375,000.
