A true Benz beauty pops up on Bring-A-Trailer

Jeff Glucker July 12, 2018 For Sale 13 Comments

Now that’s a properly wonderful color combination. Dark green on the outside paired with deep tan on the inside. It’s downright delicious, and this 1969 Mercedes-Benz 280SEL wears it oh so well. The car has just been listed for sale on Bring-A-Trailer, and it should fetch a nice chunk of change for the seller.

This M130-packing green machine lived with the same family for decades. Purchased new back in 1969, it was sold to a family friend in 2014. Now four years later it’s ready for sale. And it hasn’t traveled far to get here, considering the odometer shows just 38,114 miles.

The paint looks fantastic. The interior is equally appealing, and the engine bay is pristine.

How much will this one fetch? Don’t be shocked to see bidding top $30k when it’s all over.

    Ha! I saw that post earlier today (I check BaT regularly) and wondered if it would catch your eye. It’s a sweet example that should bring big $$$.

    Best colour combo ever. I can’t recall having seen anything in dark green over tan that wasn’t beautiful.

    Holy flashback Batman, that car is the same color and same style of lights as the 1966 250S we had when I was a kid (68-73). Our memories of that car are are mixed, On the one hand it was a great long distance cruiser, on the other hand only 3 of the 4 power windows worked at any one time and it threw a rod on the expressway which led to it being replaced by a Volvo.
    The W108 is still my favorite MB sedan, since it has the purest Paul Bracq styling and is lighter and more elegant looking than the 70s W123 etc. I also like the look of the US spec stacked round lights the big single units look blank faced to me.
