I spotted this car a day or two ago on the Shannons website. I'll be interested to read a more detailed synopsis of the car when available - but have no interest in purchasing.

I value my life too much. lol

Not sure if the rear boot badge says 280SEL instead of 280SE in the photos?

I should know a 280SEL when I see one my folks had a dark green a/cond was freezing cold like a coolroom it was!

Heavy on the fuel it was but loved the open roads!

Reserve of $2,500 to $4,000 the 280SEL at Shannons if it's a good example it should sell.

Rear headrests were an option so their existence might indicate a desire for passenger comfort rather than provide a definitive indication of model - however, to me the headrests seem to be lying down at 90 degrees. I wonder if they are originals? Maybe original rear rests folded down? That was certainly illegal for front ones at the time.
Regardless, it is not Thistle Green as indicated but is Silver Green. That is a very common mistake - unless I am mistaken of course?

Brian

Report for the 280SEL in question is now available.

Report does make interesting reading.

After reading the report I am surprised that Shannons agreed to put that vehicle up for auction.

Knowing Chris Borribon he would not accept a vehicle in that condition unless it was seriously rare.
