Vehicle description

In the Mercedes-Benz W 123 model series, the Stuttgart-based company offered the body styles saloon, saloon long version, estate (station wagon) and coupé. The engines still came from the predecessor model, the "Stroke Eight". In the W 123 model series, the "280" represented the highest engine, which was particularly popular in coupés – the coupés internally called the C 123 had a wheelbase that was over 80 millimetres shorter than that of a saloon, which in combination with the lower roof and the strongly inclined front and rear windows gave the car a squat appearance compared to the saloon. Series production of the coupé ended in 1985 – 1 year before the W 123 Saloon was discontinued.

Now a Mercedes-Benz 280 CE from the year of construction 1978 can be purchased in this auction. This coupé of the 123 series with chassis number 12305312009595 was first registered in the USA in July 1978, and over the years the 280 CE then came to Germany. Due to the lack of a history, the current owner cannot provide any information about the number of owners of the car – the seller only knows that this Mercedes-Benz comes from a collection. In addition to an H-approval and 1 set of keys, the coupé has a valid main inspection, which runs until June 2023. According to the seller, the so-called matching numbers are given.

...

The exterior of this 280 CE is kept in "light blue metallic": According to the owner, repainting has already taken place all around over the years, rust spots, paint chips or gross defects in the exterior of this coupé can not be enumerated, according to him. The chrome on the car still shines as it should and all add-on parts on the vehicle are obviously completely preserved, in addition, there are no modifications deviating from the original condition on the Mercedes-Benz. A USA badge is emblazoned on the radiator grille, and a trailer hitch catches the eye at the rear. The current owner can rule out an accident during his holding period.

...

The original baroque aluminium rims of this Mercedes-Benz have been completely chrome-plated, and the rims are fitted with tyres in good condition with sufficient tread. Also as good, the seller describes the condition of the brake system this 280 CE. Apparently, no deficits can be taken from the chassis.

...

The interior condition of this 123 coupé is well maintained and only covered with age-appropriate patina. No signs of wear can be detected on the blue full leather seats, and the traces of use in the interior of this Mercedes-Benz are kept within acceptable limits. In addition to a sunroof, the following options are also to be mentioned as features: power steering, central locking, electric windows, air conditioning, cruise control and a Becker cassette car radio. All equipment elements have in common that they work perfectly.

...

A mileage of 67,220 kilometres can be read from the speedometer in the instrument cluster of the Mercedes-Benz. The seller cannot provide proof of this mileage, but it should be said that this 280 CE cannot have reeled off too many kilometers due to its healthy overall condition.

...

As the model name "280 CE" already reveals, a 2.8-liter in-line six-cylinder engine is located under the hood in the bow of the coupé, the shifting is done by a 4-speed automatic. Only recently, this coupé was subjected to a service, defects in the technology are not to be enumerated according to the current owner. As the last repair carried out, the seller mentions the renewal of the complete air conditioning system.

...

The condition of the underbody of this coupé can be described as very well preserved. With a Mercedes-Benz Coupé – no matter which model series – a stylish appearance is always guaranteed. In the case of a C 123, this means timeless elegance. For the Mercedes-Benz 280 CE offered in this auction, the top engine as well as the noble color combination of light blue on the exterior and dark blue in the interior speak for themselves, furthermore, the stainless overall condition of this coupé provides joy due to the long running time in the USA.
