Description

The Mercedes 280E (W123 chassis) has been described as 'the greatest sedan of the 20th century' because of their quality of construction, drivability, comfort and reliability. I agree with this assessment! 
This 1980 Mercedes-Benz 280E has indeed proved itself to be a truly fantastic and reliable car including a number of interstate trips from Adelaide and has never let me down. Although the car is about the size of Germany (according to my grandson!), it has a great turning circle and is a very good everyday car. The engine runs beautifully but the transmission would benefit from a new seal as it has a minor oil leak (a few drops a day only). The interior is fantastic and there are no tears or crack in the seats. There are few cracks in the dash but they covered by the dash mat so they are not a problem. Regularly serviced by European motors in Adelaide so it has been well looked after. This a wonderful car to drive, particularity on longer trips where it is extremely comfortable. I am reluctantly selling it because I have too many cars and so something needs to go! 
This car has a 4 speed automatic gearbox (changes very smoothly) and a 2.8 litre twin overhead cam engine which runs fine, no smoke etc although for some reason it is sometimes a little hard to start when hot. However, it has never failed to start. 
The vacuum-operated central locking system stopped working a few days ago (an air leak somewhere in the vacuum system) but everything else works fine
Fitted with a number of options including electric sun roof (works fine) and a very good recent Kenwood sound system. 4 new tyres were fitted about 4000 km ago.
Fully licensed in SA (i.e. not on club registration) with about 3 months remaining. Regularly serviced, although it is currently due for its next service. Service and maintenance records and receipts from about 2010 are available and accompany the vehicle.
Bodywork is generally OK but the original paint does have some blemishes (including some clear coat peeling off the bonnet) and a few very small bumps and scratches as expected on a 38 year old car. The passenger side rear door has a small dent on on the protective side trim, not affecting the body itself. There are a few minor rust spots and bubbles on the body (see pics) but nothing structural. Wheel arches, floor pan, jacking points, fire wall and the other usual places where rust can be a problem are rust free.
Inspection welcome at North Adelaide
