    Vehicle Description

    Chequered Flag International is pleased to offer this 1969 Mercedes 280 SE Coupe in White with original Blue leather interior. 4 speed with A/C, Power Sunroof, Power Steering and Power Brakes. $13,000 spent mechanically in the last 3k miles or so. The original matching numbers engine was completely rebuilt by Metric Motors (the Mercedes engine authority) in June 2015, transmission syncros and bearings replaced, new clutch fitted, etc. Engine number is 13098010008375 and matches the data card. Mechanically it’s excellent and really drives very well. Excellent brakes and steering, A/C is cold. Excellent body and underside with no sign of prior rust or accidents. Paint is older and weak, body side moldings are the only real detraction for me. Interior is original and incredible, the seats are lovely with light patina in the front. Nice door panels. carpets and roof liner. The top of the dash wood has been redone to a concours quality. I really love this car. Comes with the engine rebuild receipts dated July 2015, other receipts, handbook and two sets of keys. Below is what the seller stated when we bought it from him.
