1968 Mercedes 280S California Car
This car is my baby and my dad and I worked on it and paid thousands to have everything redone. Everything that we could keep original is still original. We put in countless hours and had the car overhauled by multiple vintage Mercedes specialists for over a year.
The car's from CA, so no corrosion and after moving to UT and trailering the car here, I've driven it here for almost a year now. Sadly, it's time to sell because I'm getting married and buying a hybrid. But, this car needs to go to someone who will love it as much as I have.
Technically, she's a 280S, W108.016, 2.8L M130 inline 6. The engine, carbs, drivetrain, break system, steering system, cooling system, everything has been overhauled. Way too much to list. Of particular note, we had the original, dual zenith carbs rebuilt for approximately $800 and after we put them on, we decided to just go with the new dual Weber replacements ($900 - $1,200). They are way more reliable and provide 20%-30% increase in performance, response, and torque. I did not sell the rebuilt Zenith's (on ebay for approx $1,000 - $1,300), so we could possibly strike a deal to throw them in with the sale.
The odometer is one of the only non-working parts, but the mileage isn't very relevant because of the amount of work done to the engine and virtually all other systems recently and extremely low mileage after all the work.
The interior is in amazing condition for it being original upholstery. I put seat covers on the driver and passenger seats as to not cause damage to the seats while I have owned it. I also installed a hidden bluetooth controller and amps powering a Kenwood speaker system. I had to have music and bluetooth, but didn't want to change the original look of the dash, so the original radio is still there. Original manual and new repair manual included. 3 point seatbelts in the front. Brand new upgraded battery. Looking for 18k, which would mean I would just about break even for what we've put into it.
