1971 Mercedes Benz 280SE 3.5 Cabriolet s/n 111027.12.003241 Engine no. 116980.12.002685 Beige with Brown Leather Interior Among the finest luxury cars today, Mercedes-Benz stands as one of the premier innovators in both performance and luxury. Decades of racing achievement and luxury refinement combined in their offerings and matured dramatically as US market growth encouraged new models that further endeared the brand to both new and dedicated customers. Introduced in late 1969 as a prestige model, the V8-powered W111-Series 280SE 3.5 replaced the dated and underpowered inline six. Offered in both coupe and convertible form, the 280SE was immediately appealing to wealthy customers seeking quality workmanship and bespoke accessories in an automobile, but uninterested in the purposeful and expensive 600 series.

The car's first owner would keep the car for the next 31 years servicing it regularly and keeping extraordinary care of the car, as documented in over 20 years of service records and hand written notes. Highlights include the 3.5 receiving a complete engine rebuild in November of 1988 at 108,591 miles that included pistons, valves, and rebuilt heads. In 1991 the transmission was replaced at 112,489 miles. Dozens of records refer to routine maintenance on the suspension, brakes, air conditioning, electrical, and other systems. The next owner, also from Southern California, obtained the car in 2002 and would keep the car as the valuable collectable it had become. Driving it less than 5,000 miles and keeping the car well stored and maintained, he would continue the careful stewardship of this beautiful Mercedes until 2015.
