The Mercedes Benz 280 /8 is known as the "indestructible". (Quoted from Mercedes Benz Classic magazine September 2003)

While all W114 series are famous for their longevity we feel the best is the 185HP Twin Cam 280E

Originally delivered by Alan Day Limited

                                   Finchely Rd  NW3

                                   Hampstead.

Shortly after it was taken to Australia and was registered in Victoria before the owner moved to Western Australia.

After 15 years it was sold to a country businessman who used it mainly for long distance trips to Perth until he retired and moved to Perth where it had little use.

It was then bought as a gift  for a wife who thought it was too large and they put it back on market after a few months.

We bought it having owned a 1971 280 W114 with twin carbs which we sold some 5 years ago.

This 1972 automatic ( 4 speed) version comes with air conditioning, power steering, top quality radio, fitted with original Mercedes sheepskins and had only two owners for 30 years.

It is in good condition having motor overhauled approx 50,000ks ago and both long term owners had services done regularly.
