Default Green 280SEL for sale in Melbourne

So far it's commanding a decent price:

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/300607183...84.m1423.l2649

Nice colour and very good condition, but a brown interior's not for me!

From the pictures, this looks a cracking good car, with what I consider to be a nice interior. I'd hope that it should sell for no less than $5K. There is a lot of good car there.

BTW, don't you just like that splendid countryside ? Whereabouts is Doncaster located in Victoria ? Really nice spot. Regards Styria

Tobacco is one of my favourite interior colours - but then I adore Milan Brown - in fact, I think I will wear only brown today;
Doncaster used to be at the end of the Freeway when I lived in Toorak but maybe these days it's moved closer to town? It's a middle-class, newish and reasonably wealthy suburb about 20 minutes drive from the Melbourne CBD.
Regards,
Brian

Thanks for that info, BenzBoy. I'd hate to disappoint both you and Tony, though - the interior colour is not Tobacco Brown. I'll work out the correct colour in due course. Regards Styria

Doen't matter Styria - it's a gorgeous brown regardless of its actual name. Actually, I think Tobacco has more red in it?

Brian

Hi BenzBoy, Tobacco Brown is a really nice colour - and I can tell you where you have previously seen it. Remember the Milan Brown 6.9 sold by Shannons for $9K. and that you had a look at - well, that was Milan Brown, and the work was carried out by Parks, and others. The leather came from GAHH. Regards Styria

N.B. Sorry, I need to take all that back - the car originally had Tobacco Brown velour and it was a horribly dark and drab colour. Now I will have to get two colour names for you. Did you like the colour, BTW, in that Milan Brown car ? You know, when I think about it, somebody got a real bargain with that car. It even had been fitted with 15" Bundts that alone, with tyres, were worth $2K.

Nice car, however, being a 6cyl, I believe it will struggle to get to $3K (if it makes it).

It seems unless it is an immaculate show winner, people tend to shy off sixes in the S class

Agreed. Must be all those 6.9 owners saying "my car has more litres than yours has cylinders".

Notice also the centre console has faded more than the other dark brown trim - different material, and the same thing happens in blue ones at least.

Seems to be a lot of (rarer) 280SELs in Oz - must have been the "I've made it, but only just" combination of the day. This would be a great car to get as a daily for me, if only I needed one. Does look to be in good nick, and would be a nice drive back to Canberra.

Excellent value at the current price of $1k7.

Well, what a bargain - just how sad is it that a Mercedes, in this condition, should only have fetched the sort of money it did. How very disappointing. Just to take this a bit further. The example: 450SLC, cracked dash, owner wants to get it fixed. If you go to a well known Sydney Trimming Company, a re-skinned dash works out to about $850.00 (truly !) and then add about $650.00 for remove and replace. A total of $1700.00 - almost as much as this 280SEL's selling price ! It's not making sense. Regards Styria
