Considered to be the luxury replacement to the Mercedes W111 and W112 line, the 1968 Mercedes Benz 280SE and its other year models built from 1965 to 1972 were considered part of the W108 line. This new generation of autos was premiered at the Frankfurt Auto Show in 1965 and featured engines, which were carried over from the previous generation. Enlarged and refined, however, the car offered increased performance, while maintaining its reputation for reliability. Interestingly, if you are interested in purchasing a 1968 Mercedes 280SE, you can determine whether your car was an America export or European version by the color of the headlights. Yellow headlights were mandatory in Europe, particularly of those cars using French roads until 1993.
A series of beautiful 280SE coupes and convertible models were made in parallel. While a well-maintained SE convertible is a prized possession today and can often command strong prices, many collectors also set their sights on the 200SEL, which offered a powerful 6.3 liter, hand-built V-8 engine and more than 250hp.
