Known History

Vehicle to be offered WITHOUT RESERVE and SOLD to the highest bidder August 18 - 20th, at Russo and Steele's 11th Annual "Sports & Muscle at The Marriott" in Downtown Monterey, California. Please contact us for more information.

 

The last model of the W111 series of Mercedes was the 280 SE 3.5. It came equipped with the 3.5 liter V-8 engine with 200 horsepower and at 5,800 rpm produced a top speed of 130 mph. Pretty impressive stuff for a 3,700 pound car. The suspension and brakes for these factory hot rods are incredible and the overall design one of the most pleasing of the era. Lack of availability has inspired many to convert their coupe to a cabriolet.

 

This is a real 1971 Mercedes 280 SE 3.5 V-8 Coupe converted to a cabriolet, with a recent $30,000 cosmetic restoration and a full Mercedes dealer service within the past month.
