This beautiful C123 280CE coupé is finished in Thistle Green metallic with a cream cloth interior. It has covered 105k miles backed up by a full service history and is in excellent condition throughout.
One of Mercedes’ prettiest cars of the period, the 123 coupé combined engineering quality with elegant, timeless lines and, in the case of the 280, excellent performance. It is little wonder that the model is so collectable today.
Aside from metallic paintwork, this CE is equipped with electric windows and sunroof, alloy wheels and cruise control.
All original books and manuals come with the car along with a folder of receipts for recent work. Twenty-three services are recorded and the car will be serviced again prior to sale.
Importantly, since 2015 nearly £17,000 has been spent making sure this beautiful car remains in equally beautiful condition. This work included a complete rebuild of the front and rear suspension, drivetrain, brakes, cooling system, fuel system and ignition system. Then the body was stripped, checked for corrosion (very little found) and rebuilt with new, genuine front wings. As a result, this is a very well sorted 123 Coupé.
Since this is such a nice example, Classic Mercedes magazine chose to feature this car on the cover of the current (Winter 2018) issue, with a seven-page feature within.
Ads the images show, this C123 is in beautiful condition inside and out. Plus, thanks to its substantial recent refurbishment it drives superbly too.
Good 123 Coupés are thin on the ground – most need substantial restoration – so this example offers a great opportunity to buy a 280CE that is in great order, with a great history and has been properly looked after with a recent major refresh. A very pretty and desirable car.
