1971 Mercedes-Benz 200-Series 3.5
An incredible Northern California 280SE 3.5 Coupe. This spectacularly preserved example is a Bay Area native with no sign of corrosion, winter driving, or rust repair. Limited records are present for the past decade or so, but the car doesn't appear to have any deferred maintenance and is can be driven as it sits. The Tobacco Brown paint shows well without checking, fading or oxidation. The interior appears to remain original. The leather shows it's age, however there is no deterioration of the materials. All wood on the dash and console is as it should be without cracking or peeling of the veneer. Dash pad is intact with no cracks or sun damage, and the carpets show nicely as well. Overall, this is a nice surviving example of W111 that doesn't need a great deal of money spent on it to be a truly exceptional car or can be driven and shown as-is.
