1968 MERCEDES-BENZ 300SE Convertible This extremely rare and exceptionally original Mercedes-Benz 300SE convertible has only covered 53,000 original miles and is one of the very last of this flagship model built, as the 300 SE was discontinued in late 1967 and this motor car was first registered in Jersey in January 1968.The car is completely genuine, sharing the engine with the beautiful 300SL Gullwing, this example would be a prize exhibit in a motor museum as it is definitely one of the very best, most original and correct examples in existence. The car represents impeccable value for money when compared to the 280SE 3.5 Cabriolet, the model which superseded the 300 but still used the same floor pan, body and interior etc.The 300SE employed a fuel-injected version of Mercedes-Benz's new, overhead-camshaft, seven-bearing 'six' displacing 2,996cc and developing 170bhp (DIN) at 5,400rpm.The rear suspension featured Mercedes-Benz's hydro-pneumatic self-levelling system. Thus equipped, the 300SE was good for 120mph. When the 280SE ceased production in 1971, its passing marked the end of this long-established bodystyle.Today all these classic Cabriolets are highly sought after and the example offered here is perhaps the finest it has ever been our pleasure to own.Finished in surely the most stylish colour combination imaginable of Moss Green with Cognac leather interior complemented with a Tan mohair hood and with the much preferred automatic gearbox, here is a surprisingly driveable classic, offering the most advanced technology of it’s era with the last word in chic styling.Presented complete with the factory issue book-pack as well as the original buff log book. The file also contains a copy of the Summer 2015 edition of Classic Mercedes Magazine, featuring AUB 243E as the subject of the front cover story.
