1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SE 3.5 Cabriolet
3 Owners Since New
Fully Restored by Marque Expert Gernold Nisius at SL Tech
Since Carriage House Motor Cars inception over 50 years ago, we have sold some of the worlds most prestigious automobiles. Some of those vehicles have been restored by their world renown marque experts. This is one of those examples, probably the finest 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SE 3.5 Cabriolet in existence. Its presented in its original color of Medium Blue Metallic with a Grey Leather interior. It was factory ordered with desirable options like A/C, Power Windows and Folding Armrests. This motorcar has been under long term ownership its entire life and has only had 3 owners since new. The original owner kept the motorcar from 1971 until 2002 until being sold to its second owner. The second owner kept the vehicle for over 7 years before sending it to Gernold Nisius at SL Tech to be fully restored. This motorcar took over 5 years with no expenses spared to be perfectly restored by Gernold. No detail was left unturned during the restoration including all of the correct finishes on every part and the correct paint markings on the suspension. The mechanics were completely gone through making it one of the best running and driving Mercedes we have ever seen. It has been in our private collection since 2014 and has been driven only 1,138 miles since the completed restoration. It is being sold with its original books, tools and manuals. This is an exceptional time to own the finest example available.
