If you're looking for information or Buyer's Tips for the 1967 Mercedes Benz 280SE Cabriolet, you've come to the right place. The Mercedes Benz 280SE would run alongside the 250SE during 1967 and part of 1968 before officially replacing it in 1969. Outfitted with a new 2.8L engine capable of generating 180 horsepower, and boasting Bosch mechanical fuel injection and four-wheel disc brakes, the only real way to differentiate a 280SE from a 250SE during this era was to look at the badge on the trunk. The exterior would not change until later in 1969 when the hood and grille were lowered by a few inches to give the car a more modern appearance. Running until 1971, there would be only 1,390 Cabriolet models produced. The Cabriolets, like most classic convertibles, are more desirable than their Coupe counterparts and can be identified by the chassis prefix of 111.025.
Know what to look for when buying a 1967 Mercedes Benz 280SE Cabriolet or you can find yourself purchasing a serious money-pit. When these Cabriolet models are well maintained, however, they increase in value. While the 280SE 2.8L cars are more valuable than their 220SEb and 250SE predecessor models, the 280SE with the 8-cylinder 3.5L engine is considered to have a higher value in today's market. Of course condition is directly correlated to value, so always try to find the best example you can within your budget. Rust is going to be a major player in the condition of these classics, and it would be in your best interest to ensure you perform a thorough inspection for rust.
