This 280SE 3.5 Cabriolet Convertible presents in its stunning original colors and all matching numbers. Photos of the full, extremely high standard restoration are included. The paint and interior both present as new, with the rare Zebra wood in perfect glossy condition. Retaining its matching number 3.5L V8, it received a full engine rebuild in 2006. Mileage is a verified original 61,000 miles, however, the engine rebuild only has about 1200 miles on it. The factory A/C unit works well and blows cold. The car has the thickest stack of service records weve seen in a while, with ownership and service records spanning 3 documented owners and 5 decades. The car drives like a dream, fires right up and is smooth and silky even over the roughest cobble stone roads. This is one of the nicest and most well documented 280SE 3.5s weve had, and youd be remiss to let this one slip through the cracks before the summer. Included with the car is its tool kit, service records, jack, first aid kit, factory service manuals, and a spare wheel.
