THE PERFECT WINTER PROJECT! THIS IS ONE OF THE RAREST LHD SOLID STYLISH (1972) MERCEDES W108 280SE 4.5 V8 AUTO'S YOU WILL FIND AT THIS PRICE! NICE SPEC CAR LOOKS THE PART AND WOULD BE A GREAT CAR OF THE MOMENT INVESTMENT WITH A LITTLE WORK! CAR IS 96% RUST FREE! JAMES CORDEN HAS MADE THESE ON TREND! CAR HAS RECENTLY BEEN IMPORTED FROM IDAHO WHERE IT WAS PURCHASED PERSONALLY BY ME FROM THE REGISTERED OWNER WHO HAD STARTED TO RESTORE IT. 

THIS A GENUINE ORIGINAL LHD (1972) MERCEDES W108 280SE 4.5 V8 PETROL 4 DOOR SALOON AUTOMATIC FINISHED IN NICE FACTORY GREY WITH BROWN LEATHER INTERIOR. YOU WONT FIND MANY LIKE THIS IN THE UK FOR THIS PRICE! FACTORY AIR CON AND SUNROOF CAR TOO! 

THE CAR IS IN SOLID 96% RUST FREE CONDITION! THE RUNNING GEAR IS ALL ORIGINAL WITH A FACTORY 4.5 ENGINE WITH COLUMN AUTO GEARBOX!! ENGINE AND TURNS OVER ON THE KEY, BUT HAS NOT BEEN STARTED AS THE COIL IS MISSING AND THE FUEL IN THE TANK IS STALE! REST OF THE MECHANICALS ARE UNTESTED TOO BUT LIKELY TO BE GOOD! INTERIOR IS REMOVED BUT LOOKS TO HAVE ALL THE PARTS TO BE RESTORED AND REFITTED WE CANT CONFIRM ITS COMPLETENESS (SEE PICS) HEADLINING IS GOOD BUT SAGGING AT THE REAR AND THE DASH HAS BEEN RETRIMMED IN LEATHER NICELY, BUT ALL CAN BE RESTORED THOUGH. THE BODYWORK AS PER THE PICS IS VERY STRAIGHT, EXCELLENT CHROME WORK, UNFORTUNATELY MISSING THE OUTER CHROME SIDE TRIMS AND THE BONNET EMBLEM. THE PAINTWORK IS ORIGINAL AND REASONABLE BUT A LOVELY FACTORY COLOUR, DOES HAVE SOME PATCHES OF SURFACE RUST TO SOME PANELS BUT VERY MINOR. THE SILLS/ARCHES/BOOT FLOOR ARE SPOTLESS, SOLID AND ORIGINAL, CAR IS SOLID, BUT HAS SOME RUST TO THE CENTRE OF A COUPLE OF FLOOR PANELS MAINLY ON THE PASSENGER SIDE REAR. I CANNOT STRESS WHAT A GREAT RARE PROJECT THIS WOULD BE OR KEEP THIS AND LEAVE IT IN STORAGE FOR A FEW YEARS AND WATCH PRICES RISE! 

YOU WONT FIND MANY TIDY SOLID W108 SE 4.5 V8 MODELS FOR THIS MONEY IN EUROPE.
I HAVE THE KEY/USA TITLE DOC AND NOVA PAPERWORK TO REGISTER! CAR IS TAXES PAID AND READY TO REGISTER OR EXPORT. TAX EXEMPT CAR TOO! WOULD BE MOT EXEMPT NEXT APRIL! SPEEDO SHOWING 22000 MILES TAKEN AS 122000 MILES.
