How about this for a useable, practical and uber cool Sixties Saloon? It is a 1968 Mercedes-Benz 280S Saloon finished in Mid Blue with Blue cloth Interior. It has covered about 87k KM's from new, although this cannot be verified, and has the desirable Automatic Gearbox and beautifully easy Power Steering. She is Left Hand Drive and was sold new to Canada, was spotted and imported to the UK, by her only UK owner, in 2017. She has been used regularly and serviced well since then and is Fully UK Registered with all EU taxes paid.

During the winter of 1967/1968, Mercedes-Benz launched its new generation of vehicles. This new model was known as the Stroke Eight. With its improved performance the new 280S could achieve 0-60mph in 12.5 seconds and push on to 115mph. A better arrangement of cylinders and filters improved both cooling and economy. The outstanding qualities of this new vehicle shaped a whole generation of cars. Today it is an established classic with its Straight Six Cylinder, 2.8 Litre, Carburettored Engine.

Our car has a new MOT and is Tax Free, she drives really well and is ready for use as a daily driver or weekend show car. the bodywork is very nice, although original, in the perfect shade of Blue, and the interior, whilst a little scruffy in places is a lovely place to sit. The whole interior is in a nice original condition. This is an awful lot of car for the money, a real classic from the golden era of Mercedes manufacture, and perfect for European cruising this summer.
