1968 Mercedes-Benz 280 S (W108)
The Mercedes-Benz W108 was produced between 1965 and 1972. The W108 and W109 line replaced the W111 and W112 line of cars. During the seven-year production run in West Germany, 383,361 cars were manufactured in total across all variants. The W108 designated the “normal’ wheel base and the W109 designated the long wheel base until it was replaced by the 280 SEL which retained W108 designation.
The W108 280 S like the car pictured above features a 2.8 l inline six-cylinder engine that produces 103 KW and 220 nm of torque. It featured an optional 4 speed automatic gearbox or the like the car above, the regular 4 speed manual column shift gearbox.
This specific car has done 88 350 miles from new and is completely original. It has never been restored and still retains that beautiful old Mercedes-Benz smell. The clutch and gearbox work beautifully and the engine does not miss a beat.
A wonderful opportunity to own a very beautiful, original Mercedes that you can drive every day!
