1971 Mercedes-Benz 200-Series 3.5 Manual

European Motor Studio is proud to offer this stunning 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SE 3.5 Coupe 4-speed manual finished in a stunning Silver Grey Metallic over Burgundy leather interior. This 3.5 is a European model and was verified by the Mercedes-Benz Classic Center as having left the factory a 3.5 liter V8 engine with a 4-speed manual gearbox and delivered new to Europe. The car was imported to the United States sometime in the 1990’s and has been in AZ until moving to Southern California where it was placed in a large private collection in the mid 2000’s where it has resided ever since. The car has undergone a repaint in Mercedes Silver Grey Metallic and has a beautiful finish. The paint on the car was done sometime in the mid 2000’s along with many new rubber and trim pieces, ll new Mercedes-Benz wood, complete mechanical refresh and service, ew suspension and front end and a re-work of the electrical system. In 2013 the car had a new timing chain and tensioners, elts and hoses, lugs and wires done and brand new period tires just put on the car last week. The paint finish is beautiful, here are no scratches, ents or dings on the car and there is absolutely no rust damage anywhere on the car or any rust repair work found. The undercarriage of the car is solid and clean and well presented. There are no signs of any accident damage or repair work of any kind. All of the chrome shows very well with light pitting in some areas but over all a very nice shinny finish with minimal age (one small dent in the passenger rear taillight chrome housing). The leather interior is completely original and in beautiful condition showing light patina. The car has traveled 81,890 actual miles and the interior shows exceptionally well. The leather has some age marks and slight creasing but there are no tears or damage to the leather. The carpets are the original German carpeting and show well for their age. All of the wood and switch gear are in outstanding condition. The engine starts right up and runs smoothly and does not smoke on start up or idle. The transmission shifts smoothly into gears without any grinding or slipping and the clutch has an excellent pedal feel without any slipping or fade. The brakes are solid and free from any fading or grinding. The steering is nice and tight and solid without any play or drifting. All of the electrical equipment is operating as designed including all of the exterior lights, urn signals, everse lights, rake lights, aillights and headlights and all of the interior lights are functioning. The courtesy lights come on with the doors, he glove box light is working and all of the dash lights are working and the original power antenna and original Becker radio. The factory AC is blowing cool and on all of the fan speeds. This is an outstanding running and driving 3.5 Mercedes-Benz Euro delivered Coupe with the very rare factory 4-speed manual gearbox.
