Premiered at the Frankfurt Auto Show in 1965, the Mercedes Benz 280SE, or W108, was the luxury replacement to the W111 and W112 lines. Boasting a new 2.8L engine that gave owners more than 180 horsepower, the 280SE Cabriolet and Coupe models were considered instant classics from the moment they rolled off the production floor. Having seen great success in West Germany and in the North American and Southeast Asia markets, approximately 5,187 total 280SE models with the 2.8L engine were manufactured from 1968 to 1971. Of those produced, only 1,390 were Cabriolet models, making that particular body style highly sought-after in todays classic car market.

Furthermore, always perform a thorough inspection for rust, as these cars are highly prone to corrosion. Due to the open nature of the convertible models, you should also do an inspection of the soft top and its mechanics to make sure they are in working order.
