Mercedes-Benz’s elegant Paul Bracq-designed W111 made its debut in 1959 and was produced, in its many variations, through 1971. Among the most desirable variations were the two-door models—the 280 SE Cabriolet and Coupe—which were expensive, virtually hand-built automobiles in the great tradition of German craftsmanship. The acres of wood trim throughout the interior were all genuine solid hardwood, accented by the gentle use of bright work; the leather upholstery was thick and comfortable; and both the ride quality and handling were (and continue to be) superb. Perhaps unsurprisingly, these cars rapidly became favorites of international socialites and celebrities, and they were frequently seen cruising in all of the world’s most posh destinations.
The 1969 Mercedes-Benz 280SE Cabriolet for sale at Daniel Schmitt & Co. is finished in stunning Light Ivory with a gorgeous Cognac Tan leather interior and brown convertible top. A concourse level restoration was recently completed and this Mercedes is now ready to be driven or shown. It is equipped with many options including rare factory air conditioning, full leather interior as well as its original books, manuals, service records, build cards, warranty plate, tools and much more. We are proud to offer what we believe to be one of the very finest 280SEs that can be found on the market today.
