The 1971 Mercedes Benz 280SE 3.5, particularly the convertible model, was a car that the defined an era. First debuted in 1969 at the Frankfurt Auto Show, the 3.5 coupes and convertible were the final launch in a long line of exceptional autos that started with the 220SE in 1961. The fact that Mercedes would not offer another four-seat convertible until 1992 with the E320 cabriolet only increased the draw to these cars. It may come as no surprise that a high price tag also accompanied these models and made finding and purchasing a 280SE 3.5 even more difficult. In total, the 1971 Mercedes Benz 280SE 3.5 saw 1,232 cabriolets produced, with approximately 802 of those being exported from Germany to the United States. Well-known owners included Ralph Lauren and David Gooding.
