VW Kombi Van Seeing Resurgence in Popularity

The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms.

Mercedes-Benz’s elegant Paul Bracq-designed W111 made its debut in 1959 and was produced, in its many variations, through 1971. Among the most desirable variations were the two-door models—the 280 SE Cabriolet and Coupe—which were expensive, virtually hand-built automobiles hailing from the great tradition of German craftsmanship. The acres of wood trim throughout the interior were all genuine solid hardwood, accented by the gentle use of brightwork. The upholstery was thick and comfortable, and both the ride quality and handling were (and continue to be) superb. Unsurprisingly, these cars rapidly became favorites of international socialites and celebrities, and they were frequently seen cruising in all of the world’s most posh destinations. Just less than 5,120 280SE Cabriolets and Coupes were assembled from 1968-1971. Their rarity, performance, handling, craftsmanship are all blended perfectly into a design that has become iconic. It is no wonder why the 280SE has become one of the most recognized classic Mercedes-Benz models sought after by collectors today.   

The stunning 280 SE Low-Grille Coupe featured here is finished in gorgeous Arctic white over light Tan leather interior, fitted with many desired options such as center console automatic transmission, factory air conditioning power windows, and more. This magnificent 280 SE was restored with no expense spared and is among one of the finest examples to be found in the market today, although we don't know the exact cost of the restoration from my experience, I would estimate it to be much more than our asking price. Incredible opportunity to own one of the best!! Offered to the most astute collector investor or enthusiast who understands and appreciates a world-class restoration.
