Medium red with light beige leather and soft top, Zebrano wood trim, factory AC, Becker Europa radio, floor-shift automatic, and power windows. 75,800 miles. 11102712002320.

One of the last limited-production Mercedes convertibles, this 280SE was also one of only 1235 examples made with the advanced alloy-block 3.5-liter V8. It has the latest 4-speed automatic and factory-installed Behr air conditioning.

This one was restored for a Mercedes enthusiast by MB specialists Ultracar. The car was taken apart and rebuilt in, out, and underneath. The padded soft top was rebuilt, the original-pattern perforated leather and wilton carpets redone by skilled trimmers, and the chromed trim all re-plated to show standards. Suspension and body isolation rubbers were replaced to ensure the same riding and handling qualities as original. This quality of restoration costs over $120,000 to do, assuming one can find a sound, unrusty car to start with.

A $5,000 major service was done in spring of '06. This included R134 air conditioning conversion. No squeaks, no rattles, no punch list. Ready to enjoy.
$130,000
