Selling off some of your classic cars to make room for other new additions is a great problem to have and such appears to be the case with this stunning 1971 Mercedes-Benz W108 280SE sedan listed on Craigslist in Rockville, Maryland.  The current caretaker is offering his W108 for $17,900 which the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool confirms is $500 less than the #3 “Good” estimate of $18,400. 

We love the color combination of this early seventies W108 and the seller says it best:  “This is an outstanding vehicle from the Mercedes-Benz golden years and beautiful inside and out. Use it as a weekend fun car, special occasions car, a visit to cars and coffee or as daily driver if you so desire. Drive it around and count the smiles as you go!”  We couldn’t agree more.  Good luck with the purchase!

Here’s the seller’s description:

“1971 Mercedes-Benz 280 SE Sedan in Mercedes-Benz Blue over Blue MB-Tex interior. Originally out of a private Los Angeles collection. Making room for new cars in my collection so regrettably this one has to go. Perfect combination of classic luxury and an absolute head turner in this color combo.

This is an outstanding vehicle from the Mercedes-Benz golden years and beautiful inside and out. Use it as a weekend fun car, special occasions car, a visit to cars and coffee or as daily driver if you so desire. Drive it around and count the smiles as you go!

The Blue paintwork (respray) and chrome work are in good condition overall and present well. Interior condition is very clean and shows well. Equipped with a Becker Europa AM/FM stereo, a center armrest, and power windows. Maintenance performed within the last 1,000 miles includes: new air conditioning compressor, R134a conversion, whitewall tires, Bilstein shocks, a fuel pump, and a fresh battery. This W108 is offered with an owner’s manual, spare keys, and a clean title.

Many more photos and a cold start video are available. Please contact me for more.
