This 1971 Mercedes 280 SE 3.5 V8 Coupe is one of 820 ever produced for the US.
This Mercedes was sold new to television star Ed Sullivan in 1971.
Ed Sullivan used this Mercedes for over 8 years when he gave it to his friend who
lived in Beverly Hills,California. It remained with the 2nd owner until 2015 when the Mercedes
was sent to Legendary Classic Center in Costa Mesa, California for a complete restoration.
The restoration took over 2 years and cost over 125000$ to complete.
It is finished in its original Tunis Beige, factory color with new parchment leather interior.
This 280SE 3.5 is in Concours condition, with no expense sparred in the restoration
I have all of the original owners books, stamped service manual, and restoration receipts.
The Mercedes 280SE 3.5 series was the last of the hand assembled Mercedes produced.
