1978 Mercedes-Benz 280 SE W116

1978 Mercedes-Benz 280 SE W116, S/N 11602412114297, Astral Silver metallic with black MB Text interior.  Sold new on 8/28/1978 to Layfayette, CA and owned by this gentleman until acquired by a Newport Beach man in 1986, whom we got this wonderful Benz from.  The first owner serviced the SE religiously for the 8 years he owned it, enjoying it for 112,000+ miles, always getting the MB maintenance booked stamped by the dealer.  Then to Newport and the balance of the miles accrued locally.  Always maintained, serviced and cared for, this Big Benz is a testament to the way Mercedes used to construct its cars…to last and stand the test of time.  To drive this car is to experience another time, slow down and feel special.
