Online Thread for the main vehicle: https://www.benzworld.org/threads/1980-280se-4-speed-stick-with-sls.2751321/
Number of Cars Included: 1
Asking Price December 2020: $3500
Title: Clean, Colorado as of Jan 2021, but expect to title, register, before spring
Model: 280se m110 4-speed manual:
Transmission: 4-speed manual
Modifications: SLS disabled. Appears to have taller springs.
Recent Fixes: Been in barn storage for over a year, but have several blue body panels to bolt on “soon” as of Jan 2021. This is the next car to get from the farm and begin restoring. Since I parted a 1983 380se with the same interior, that is all available to fix this one up. It otherwise currently has one gray door panel, and a black driver door handle armrest. The rear passenger window was replaced immediately after purchase with one from at 1989 300se that was parted out. This car has been a great driver. Euro headlights obtained.
Issues List: Small dent in front passenger door. A door is available though. Not sure whether blue or if it would be required to use the black one I have. Not sure its worth it due to how small the dent is. Could possibly upgrade to power windows while doing so though, as the blue interior parted car was a power window car.
