A dream for the Mercedes-Benz collector or enthusiast

The 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SE Sedan featured here is finished in the stunning factory color combination of white over a blue interior. This U.S. specification example is equipped 4-speed manual transmission — an incredibly rare and highly sought after feature on a U.S. model W108 chassis. Very few U.S. cars have been built in this configuration and examples such as this are highly desirable.  This classic S-class currently presents in wonderful condition showing partially original paint and a largely original interior. The undercarriage still displays most of the original factory inspection markings which prove that this example has been meticulously maintained from new. A mere 35,000 miles are present on the odometer; this number is believed to represent the total mileage accrued since new. A generous amount of factory options and features are present including air conditioning, power steering, power 4-wheel disc brakes, Becker Europa AM/FM Radio and more! A recent service has been performed and this example is now ready to be enjoyed by its next owner. Classic cars have proven to be among the most resilient and rewarding investments in recent years with the Historic Automobile Group Index (HAGI) jumping 39% in 2013, 16% in 2014 and 17% in 2015 while posting gains of 467% over the last 10 years.
