Lot 080: 1983 MERCEDES-BENZ 280 SE

Van Dijk Collection, H&H Sales Limited (3 October 2005)

Finished in blue with grey cloth upholstery, this particular example is described by the vendor as being in either excellent (paintwork, bodywork) or 'as new' (engine, gearbox, electrical equipment, interior trim, chassis, wheels / tyres) condition. Powered by a 2,746cc dohc straight-six engine mated to four-speed automatic transmission, the ultra-low mileage of 4,755 displayed on its odometer is reputedly confirmed by "the service book and MOTs". Reportedly purchased directly from Mercedes-Benz in Germany by its first owner Mr A Ali Reza of London, it is further said to have been "housed in an air conditioned garage" together with "a number of other superb vehicles including Bentleys, Jensen FF etc all with next to no miles recorded". An unusual find, it is offered for sale with MOT certificate valid until 24th March 2006 and sundry paperwork.
