During the 1967 model-year, Mercedes Benz brought about some changes to their lineup when the 280SE replaced the short-lived 250SE. Boasting a new 2.8L engine capable of producing 180hp, Bosch mechanical fuel injection and four-wheel disc brakes, the 1967 Mercedes Benz 280SC Cabriolet and Coupe brought a welcomed power and performance increase. Later, in the 1969 model-year, the power would increase again with the addition of a new 3.5L option. While many buyers prefer the 280SE with the larger 3.5L engine, the 280SE is a great value for those buyers seeking the elegance and style of the 280SE but who don’t need to extra power. Like most classic convertibles, the 280SE Cabriolet is also popular with buyers looking for an open-air driving experience and the raw feel of a performance sports car. If you’re the owner of a 1967 Mercedes Benz 280SE Cabriolet and are thinking about selling, the Alex Manos team of California classic car dealership professionals looks forward to sharing their knowledge and expertise with you.


1967 Mercedes Benz 280SE Cabriolet Seller’s Guide

Rust is perhaps the biggest player in the sale of any 1967 Mercedes Benz 280SE Cabriolet. Any educated buyer will require a full mechanical inspection and will most likely ask for the car to be placed on a lift to view and inspect the underbelly for rust. Some of the most common places that are rust-prone include the headlight buckets, the edges of the wheel wells and the rocker panels. Secondly, trim pieces are important to the sale of your 280SE Cabriolet, as they are expensive and hard to find. Because your model is the Cabriolet, buyers will also want to know the overall condition of the convertible top and if there were periods of time where it was left open for the elements to fade or damage the leather interior of the car. Because mechanical parts are fairly available since the Cabriolet engines were based on the Sedans, having a 280SE that is in good condition physically can often add more value than one of perfect mechanical shape. The Alex Manos team is always in the market for new classics of all conditions to add to their inventory.
