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. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.
Classic Car Overview
1980 Mercedes-Benz 280SE The W108 a line of Mercedes-Benz automobiles introduced in 1965 included the straight 6 M126 Engine, and a double stacked bumper configuration. Like all Mercedes-Benz cars produced, it was like driving a German Panzer. Not unlike a double hull ship, these cars were built to last. Lasting until the present in very good condition, this W126 280SE is mostly original equipment. Throughout its history, it has some rebuilt parts, but has stayed with the original configuration with options and styling. A true rust-free example, the underside of the car is as nice than the topside. Also, some prominence this car was once in the ownership of Barbara Streisand. We have the documentation from Christies. Lastly one of only 30 to have made it here to the US in gas format in lieu of diesel which were on all the remaining SEs Exterior Still housing its original sheet metal, this Anthracite Gray metallic coated beauty is totally rust free and shining brightly. Dual stacked chrome bumpers in front and in the rear show some of the redundancy Mercedes is famous for. Bejeweling the front is a chromed floating radiator grille, topped by the essential tri pointed star. This is chaperoned on either side by a square fog light, as well as a horizontal flanking of dual headlights, shown in the American version (round duals). All brightwork is intact and shining as well. Period Mercedes wheels matching the car are on all 4 wheels, and under 100 mile usage tires are mounted on the outside of the wheels. Design for the period shows nicely narrowed profile trunk and hood areas of the bodywork. Interior Original black leather hides cover dual front buckets, as well as arm rests, and rear seats. The interior seats are blemish free and very clean, almost like new. Gray and tan pebbled loop carpeting covers the floor in stain free style, and stretches from door to door, which has leather covered panels. A wood dash with a swooping instrument panel and gauge cluster is fronted by an original steering wheel. Plenty of wood appliqu is on the front of the dash, and top of the console, and it breaks up the black very tastefully. This is all very clean and well maintained and the air conditioning has been converted to R134. Drivetrain The Mercedes-Benz W116 engine is a straight-six Otto cycle engine with reliable fuel injection. The engine displaced 168 cubic inches, and develops 142 BHP, at a maximum engine speed of 5800 RPM, all with a 9.0:1 compression ratio. Bolted to the back is a 3-speed automatic transmission. Undercarriage Presenting with an overall gray patina, little surface rust can be found. Mechanicals are all working well, and structure is sound. 4-wheel disc brakes, and A arm suspension with coil springs upfront, and a swing axle with coil springs on the rear. Drive-Ability Started quickly and was an easy driver with great sedan handling, good acceleration, and a smooth cruiser on the highway. All well restored and clean presentation. Provenance may add value, it may not, but the beauty is still in this car Barbara or not, it is a beautiful example, well restored with metal surfaces well attended to, mechanicals gone over, and the interior remains very clean and original. A mere 64,012 original miles. Memories... VIN Decode 11602412153591 116-Model 116 024-280SE 1-Left Hand Drive 2-Automatic Transmission 153591-Sequential Unit Number
