This dealer is normally quite expensive, but this car is interesting and unique.
Where else are you going to find a manual 280E with a full leather interior and other options? Most manual W123 models you see are stripper models like 200's.

Headlights are wrong for a 280E, so it may have been in a minor front end prang.

The manual 280E has been for sale for a while now.

Rare to see to a manual 280E but 251,000kms for almost $17K?

Yes too expensive for my tastes and I’m not a fan of the colour, but this dealer always has very high prices listed. No idea if his stock acutually sells for the asking price. Very few cars sell for the asking price.

It does seem a desiresble w123 though with the manual trans, leather and high compression engine. All other w123 I’ve seen were mbtex or cloth.

There is a lot to be said for a yellow 123 wagon. Not sure about the price, but it is one of the nicer ones I've seen for a while.

I have seen this lovely 79 280E advertised a couple of times.
Great car for not a lot of money.

It looks like a nice car and one of the more desirable of the W123's. I think the reason why its been for sale so long is that the price is probably a little high for a car without working A/C but if the A/C was working you could raise the price a grand so.

Well, I agree with C107 regarding the dealer's price. He always aims for the sky. The car itself - nowadays, not sure about the leather upholstery, nor the manual transmission. Sure, might be rare, but MB transmission ratios for MBs probably have their origins in the '50s. At least, that's my experience with a 220SE Finnie and a 280SE 3.5 Coupe.

I really like the other two cars that Bryce posted about a bit more - especially the Wagon. Very nice. regards Styria

N.B. By the way, I spotted this Aston Martin Rapide - doesn't that name just saunter down your tongue ? http://www.alexhollandclassiccars.co...e-s-auto-my06/ Regards Styria

Not sure if this qualifies as a “ car of the week” is there somewhere this type of car should be posted on the forum?

Anyway,
Here it is.
In all its glory with a 5L Holden injected V8.

The thread is for anything interesting that catches your eye, so perfectly fine to post this car. We've even had non Mercedes posted here.

I prefer the other one, but if you want a collection of green SECs you could buy both!

The red one looks expensive for what it is, but still a good looking car.

Being late 450s make them more desirable to most (outside the 6.9 of course!)

Besides the red colour, to me the 450SE is more desirable (although it is pricey) and fun to drive as you can feel the extra power from the lighter (shorter) body.
