If since watching the first Hangover movie you’ve been harboring a secret desire for a drop-top vintage Mercedes-Benz, here’s your chance to actually buy something really close to it. The topless Merc in question is an extremely gorgeous 1970 Mercedes 280 SE Cabriolet 3.5 liter.
Mind you, this baby is a right-hand-drive example on sale in the United Kingdom, so if you live somewhere else keep harboring that desire. But for UK buyers, this is about as good a Mercedes 280 SE Cabriolet as you can possibly find for sale out there. The car has been meticulously restored by an Australian company called Sleeping Beauties of Brisbane and is currently in perfect running order.
The specs of this extremely rare 1970 Mercedes 280 SE Cabriolet is also quite brilliant. It has the four-speed, floor-mounted automatic gearbox, power steering, electric windows and a six-layer folding roof as well as black paint job and leather interior. Granted, it’s not much, but we’re talking about a car from late Sixties here. What do you want Apple Car?
The 280 is currently on sale at Hexagon Classic. Paul Michaels, chairman of Hexagon Classics, said: “Seeing a right-hand-drive Mercedes-Benz 280 SE 3.5 for sale is extremely rare, let alone one like this in such incredible condition. It’s one of the greatest cars in the German brand’s history and certainly deserves all the plaudits it gets. Sleeping Beauties of Brisbane has done sterling work restoring this stunning car, and a lucky buyer can now profit from their brilliance and Mercedes’ expertise.”
