MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to present this stunning and poweful 1976 Mercedes-Benz 280C(E). This Brilliant Red Benz defies its age and would be comfortable as a daily driver or weekend driver residing with the same Arizona owner for 12 years. This was the last year for the 280C model. The (E) designates the Bosch fuel injection version for the 2.8 liter. Though never officially sold in the U.S. with fuel injection, he previous owner decided in 2001 to replace the carbureted engine with the fuel injected engine, horsepower increase of 57 hp!
The 1968-1976 Mercedes-Benz 250/280C/CE were the sportiest non-SL Mercedes of this period. All were derived from the square-lined “New Generation” sedan first seen in 1967, iffering mainly in a slightly shortened pillarless roof with two-inch-lower overall height..
Finished in Brilliant Red metallic (code 525), he paint job remains pretty much all original & unrestored shows well with only minor imperfections and slight fading visible upon inspection. Front bumper has a good fit, ith slight finish issue on the drivers side, he rear bumper has a excellent fit and finish that shows well. All trim pieces are present and have a brilliant finish with little hazing and or dent that we could see. The weather stripping is still very pliable with very little shrinkage or drying. The U.S. spec headlights and taillights are in very condition with no hazing or cracks. The original equipment wheels showed very little marring.
Inside, he rich Saddle Tan MB-Tex vinyl seats all look great with no major signs of wear visible. Excellent matching carpet throughout the interior. Overall the genuine wood in the interior looks great, owever there is a little lifting on the dash speaker. The door panels and dashboard are matched perfectly with the exterior of the car and look fantastic. The headliner mirrors the rest of the cabin and completes the theme. The blower motor is confirmed to work at this time The original steering wheel in great condition, ower windows, ower locks and power antenna. The fuel gauge and odometer are inoperable. Pioneer upgraded stereo with 6 x 9 rear speakers.
This nicely represented Mercedes is equipped with the upgraded 177hp 2.8L Bosch K-Jectronic DOHC 2.8L Inline six cylinde, -speed (over 3) automatic transmission, ower steering, ower brakes, ir conditioning, eater, wheel disc brakes, lear driving lights and tools. 14 inch OEM steel wheels with Brilliant Red matching full Mercedes hub caps.

Ideal for an everyday driver or weekend get-a-ways, his 280C(E) is the way it’s suppose to be… even better with a fuel injected engine and transmission upgrade! GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!
