Wow. They do not come much nicer than this 1969 Mercedes 280S!
With 29000 recorded miles showing on the clock this superb 280S was imported from South Africa 11 years ago and still has the original SA books and paperwork in its history. There is no rust anywhere on the body, in fact the vendor says the only rust is on one hub cap! The rest of the cars exterior bright work is excellent.
The interior is a real “Time warp” Beautiful original bright red leather interior with wood in excellent condition. Its engine is described as excellent as is the 4 speed manual column change equipped gear box.
Over the past few years there has been on-going maintenance carried out to keep things tip top, with work to the brakes and drive train plus the fitting of a new exhaust. The upshot of all this care being lavished is that this great old “Merc” drives well and everything works as it should. Just a lovely car.
