Another Green SEC, this time a 420SEC that is being advertised as a 560.

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

Oh, I like that!
I’ve seen many sixes with a manual box for sale, but a V8, albeit a small one, would be fun to drive!

Yes there cannot be many in Australia. Somebody needs to buy it!

And a 350 so it will be D Jet, thirsty but frisky. I'd love it but just before Christmas I wonder if it has Air?

Interesting comparing the figures from automobile catalog. the 350SE 4 speed manual is slightly faster than a 450SE:

0-100km/h

350SE 4: 8.7
350SE A: 10.6
450SE A: 9.4

0-160km/h

350SE 4: 23.2
350SE A: 27.1
450SE A: 24.2

80-120km/h

350SE 4: 6.3
350SE A: 6.9
450SE A: 6.4

This is for 1975 models.

To some extent, I am hi-jacking this thread. Please forgive me, but really I've got to start somewhere to make up for my extended absence.

https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/moun...-9l/1199444257

If this car is worth the money being asked for it, my Gleaming Beauty has got to be worth an extra ten grand on top of that. Look, I am just not sure, but the interior may well not be original. It almost looks like MB Tex. Also, whilst photography is less than precise, timber work, door trims seem in quite tired condition. Bodywork ? Your guess as good as mine, as that black vinyl seems to camouflage a number of deficiencies. This one is not for me. Regards Styria

I think it needs some brake work for rego. He's just bought a much newer BMW.

Hi Bryce, how did you guys get on with the sale of the Coupe - as you said, it looks a little rough, but those 280CEs are really quite a desirable model. Regards Styria

In my opinion, the four speed box fitted to Benzes round about 1969-1973 (as best as I know) is not particularly user friendly. The ratios are typical of the fifties and sixties, and a European relic from days gone by. I have had extensive use of a 280SE 1971 4 speed Coupe, and I found that first and second were low and closely grouped together, with a huge gap to third gear. The box itself was pleasant enough, but I often found myself hunting between second and third. Regards Styria

Aren't they just such beautiful cars - for the Shannons price of $5000.00 for a 1956 Vespa - and, you don't even get that Italian beauty hanging off the pillion with both legs dangling over the side. Regards Styria

It got sold to a guy in the Mercedes club. He had another one. Apparently he and his 19yr old daughter drive the cars. I saw it at the German day. It looked like they had started tidying it up.
