History:
In 1967 the M130 2.8lt engine was offered in the w108 series and featured a fuel injection pump that performed at all temperatures and heights. A year later, the longer w109 wheelbase was introduced to the w108 series via the 280 SEL.
This particular SEL was ordered in 1970 in the most commendable blue metallic over maroon leather interior with a very interesting set of options including a 5-speed manual transmission and an electric sunroof. Notably, its first owner travelled to Germany on July 1970 to collect the car from the factory and drive it back to Greece on temporary registration. Seven years later the owner transferred ownership to his company and stored it for numerous years. In 2001 it was acquired by a local Mercedes-Benz collector who recommissioned it via proper service and maintenance. After 16 years of ownership the SEL was sold to a friend of his who is also a collector and admirer of MB classics. He in turn decided it to provide additional preservation treatment and store it in a climate controlled garage.
It is now offered for sale in an impeccable cosmetic and mechanical condition.
