    This W123 1978 Mercedes Benz 280CE Coupe is a collectable classic. It was born in an era when Mercedes Benz was in their peak in automotive excellence. World renowned as the "most over engineered car ever built", this 280CE Coupe is an absolute pleasure to drive. It always turns heads and I frequently have to pull down my front window to answer questions about this car.

    The previous owner had the engine reconditioned and has only run 28,000. When I purchased this automobile I had it striped and professionally resprayed, costing $6,000 and the whole engine professionally checked and calibrated by a Mercedes Benz specialist who specifically only only works on W114 and W123 vehicles.

    This vehicle is always serviced prior its scheduled appointment and I always ensure that the engine oil, spark plugs and spark plug leads and windscreen wipers are changed. Regardless if they need to be changed of not.

    I had it serviced in April of this year. Also, the tyres were changed in May this year (white wall wheel tyres). The front windscreen was replaced this April and the front and rear windscreen and window rubbers were replaced with brand new genuine Mercedes Benz rubbers from Germany, costing over $1,100 with installation using Windscreen O'Brien. Also, both right and left door rubbers have been replaced one month ago with genuine Germain Mercedes Benz rubber.

    When I purchased this automobile the previous owner had a CD player installed in it. I removed it and hunted down the original Becker Mexico cassette player and installed it professionally.

    It also comes with genuine Mercedes Benz Bundt alloy wheels and mud flaps.

    New genuine Mercedes Benz floor mats were custom made with the correct interior colour this year for this vehicle.

    Attention to detail has always been of pivotal importance with this car. Parts have been sourced from Germany, USA, Lebanon and Sweden for this car to ensure it maintains authenticity.

    This year I installed a Viper car alarm and central locking system. It is parked in the garage at home with a weather repellent car cover on top from dust and dirt.

    I have most of the receipts and log books and manuals for this vehicle and you are most welcome to take it to a mechanic of your choice and inspect it. It will not disappoint at all.

    I had a RWC done late last year and it passed with flying colours. This was done for my own piece of mind.

    My family and I are Mercedes Benz enthusiasts and have owned and still own many of these fine German engineered vehicles.

    I am in no rush to sell this beautiful vehicle. I will only let her go to the right person who will appreciate her and can enjoy her.

    The only reason I would like to sell this vehicle is due to my investment commitments. She will be sadly missed if I do let her go.
