We had such a good time posting beautiful German cars designed by a Frenchman that we wanted to post yet another classic Fräulein, but this one has a long wheelbase and is bagged. And when I say bagged, I don’t mean like it has been put inside of a bag…but that the suspension has been modified to use inflatable air bags and now it can be stanced or lifted at the flick of a switch. Find this 1968 Mercedes-Benz 280SEL offered for $10,000 in New Hampshire via craigslist. Tip from Carter.
From the seller:
1968 Mercedes Benz 280sel
paint color: green
title status: clean
What’s up Craigslist , I hate to do this but I’ve hit some hard times , so I’m selling my bagged 1968 Mercedes Benz 280sel, this car is very clean , I bought the car last November and did a ton of work to it , I replaced plugs, wires, coil pack , upgraded to electronic points , new battery , new front brakes and calipers , replaced brake line , gas line , transmission shifter bushing , replaced fuel pump , subframe bushings , and I’m sure I’m missing a few things, also custom air ride , 3p management system , clean trunk system. Also have a set of 16×8 bbs rs’s to throw on also
The bad , neeed to bleed brakes and get new rear brakes plus calipers, I might do them before I sell . Also I’m gonna upgrade the alternator , since doing the airride seems like original alternator isn’t giving it enough juice to charge battery properly .
Cash is king but I’ll take a trade if it’s the right car , mostly would want a vw beetle or bus.
