Designated internally by Mercedes Benz as the W108, the Mercedes Benz 280SE was the luxurious replacement to the W111 and W112 lines. Manufactured from 1965 to 1972, the 280SE was presented to the public at the Frankfurt Auto Show in 1965 and made its debut with increased performance capabilities, an enlarged and refined body, and standard Mercedes reliability buyers had come to respect. Under the hood, the standard 2.8L engine from the earlier generation was used. In total, 5,187 units would be manufactured; of which 3,797 models were Coupes and 1,390 were Cabriolets. Today, due to their rarity, the Cabriolets are perhaps the most desirable among the two, yet there is still quite the demand for the Coupe version. As with all classic cars, authenticity should be verified. As such, Cabriolets should have a chassis prefix of 111.025 and Coupes should read 111.024. These numbers can be verified against Mercedes records prior to the sale of your 1968 Mercedes Benz 280SE Coupe.
