The 1967 model-year brought about some changes to the Mercedes Benz lineup when the 250SE was replaced with the 280SE. The 1967 Mercedes Benz 280SE Coupe was outfitted with a new 2.8L engine, which generated 180hp, and offered Bosch mechanical fuel injection and four-wheel disc brakes. Later, in 1969, the hood and grille were also lowered by a couple of inches, giving the car a more modern appearance and the engine size was increased to 3.5L. Prior to this change in body style, the only way to differentiate a 250SE from an early 280SE was to look at the badge on the trunk. Many collectors and Mercedes enthusiasts prefer the later models with the bigger engines, making them highly desired in the classic car market and thus offered at a higher value. For those buyers seeking the style and grace of a postwar Mercedes, the 1967 280SE Coupe is a great option. Less expensive than the later models and often with less damage and wear than the Convertible counterparts, the 280SE Coupe is an excellent choice.

The Beverly Hills Car Club, a leading California classic car dealership based in Los Angeles, has helped countless clients find the classics they desire.

Some of the most important areas to inspect include the headlight buckets, the edges of the wheel wells and the rocker panels. Also, trim pieces are important on the 280SE because they are hard to find. Mechanically speaking, the 220 through 280 Coupes and Cabriolet engines are based on the Sedans; therefore mechanical parts are in no shortage. However, these are large cars and a complete restoration can become costly and time consuming. Always purchase the best condition Mercedes 280SE Coupe you can find within your budget; it will save you considerable amounts of money in the long run.
