1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SE 3.5 Cabriolet

429,000 €

This beautiful Mercedes-Benz 280SE 3.5 Cabriolet with the coveted and rare 8-cylinder engine was first delivered to the USA in 1971. At the beginning of 2010, the then rust-and accident-free car was brought back to Germany by one of our regular customers and then completely restored here by a specialist company for Mercedes-Benz classics at the highest level. The reason for the import of the car was, of course, the fact that it was a model with full equipment, in addition to the good condition. In addition to the steering wheel automatic, the convertible has electric windows, the Becker Radio with electric antenna, center arm leans, the coveted Behr air conditioning, color glazing, fog lights as well as the windshield with glare strips. In addition to the body, the extensive chrome parts, the roof mechanics as well as new top, the entire technology, axles, gearboxes, electrics and the entire interior have of course also been restored. It should be noted that the original and first leather equipment was reassembled with newly upholstered seats due to the first-class condition and today creates a charming look and a great sense of quality. Overall, the vehicle presents itself in pristine and perfect condition, as it has been part of a large collection since restoration and has been used very rarely.
The colour combination with black lacquer, black top and black leather trim in particular make the vehicle very elegant and rare.
Secure this beautiful convertible and enjoy the summer!
It’s delivered this vehicle with new inspection, new TÜV and popular H-approval!

The only company worldwide dedicated solely to the restoration of the exclusively valuable Mercedes-Benz 300 SL. Serving for the past 25 years with intelligence, dedication and enthusiasm. Entrepreneur, director and world-renowned expert in the automotive icon with the trademark star, is Hans Kleissl. Hardly anyone else has such a wealth of knowledge, experience, and passion. Being a classic car enthusiast and collector himself led to his founding of HK-ENGINEERING. „He's one of us,” is the common opinion among his customers. HK-ENGINEERING is set in a lovingly restored monastery in the Bavarian village of Polling, with an additional branch in the Berlin Classic Remise. Further partners and representatives are located outside of German borders, listed in detail under the heading „Contact.“ HK-ENGINEERING is well-established. Throughout years of service in Kleissl's SL workshop, mechanical engineers have made technical contributions to the sustainable conservation of this unique Mercedes model series. As a result, while it previously took at least a year to bring a Gullwing or Roadster back to its original glory, the mechanics in Polling can now finish an entire „resurrection” of a 300 SL in only six to nine months. HK-ENGINEERING offers its clients restoration of nearly all original parts: from refurbishing old leathers to matching original body paint. Of course, they are also able to restore classic Mercedes-Benz cars from the ground-up. Since 1995, HK-ENGINEERING has operated its own racing team. To date they've built a dozen SLS-type cars. „While others speak of their great technical competence, we prove ours on the track,“ boasts Hans Kleissl. Aside from the vast technical expertise, Kleissl is deeply involved in the social aspect of the 300 SL series. He has served on the board of directors for the 300 SL club of Germany for more than ten years. More than fifty 300 SL automobiles are currently in the Polling establishment. To meet the ever-growing demand, the team of HK-ENGINEERING has grown to more than forty employees.
