Buying a 1969 Mercedes Benz 280SE Cabriolet

1969 Mercedes Benz 280SE CabrioletLooking for information about the 1969 Mercedes Benz 280SE Cabriolet? The Beverly Hills Car Club, a renowned California classic car dealership based in Los Angeles, is happy to provide you with the following Buyer's Guide to help you in your search. Long before the Mercedes Benz 280SE Cabriolet appeared in the box-office hit The Hangover, collectors have been clamoring to own this special piece of Mercedes history. First, it is important to note that during the 1969 model-year two versions of the Mercedes Benz 280SE were available the 2.8L and the 3.5L. The 280SE 3.5L is perhaps the most sought-after of this particular line and is known for its expressive styling, spacious interior and world-class engineering. Offering a lower and wider grille to accommodate the increased engine size, leather and hardwood interior, and a powerful V-8 3.5L engine, it is easy to understand why this car is praised as being the perfect combination of grace and power. In total, only 1,232 units of the Cabriolet would roll off the production floor from 1969 to 1971, while 3,270 Coupe models were made.

1969 Mercedes Benz 280SE Cabriolet Buyer's Guide

A pristine condition 1969 Mercedes Benz 280SE Cabriolet with a 3.5L V-8 engine can easily command a price tag into the six-figure range, however there is a wide fluctuation in the values of these 280SE models. Whether you're looking for a pristine model for your showroom or have always wanted to restore a 280SE, there are a few items that you should consider before making any purchase. First, like many classic cars from this ear, rust plays a huge role in the condition of these autos. Some of the key locations to check include the windshield flange, headlight bucket, bumper mounts, floorboards, and wheel arches among others. Secondly, you'll want to have the mechanics and completeness of the classic verified by a third-party inspector that specializes in European classics. While mechanical parts can be relatively easy to find, it is the condition of the body that is most important. For Cabriolet models specifically, be sure to inspect the condition of the top and verify that the interior is not too far-gone due to exposure from the elements.
