From the seller:
1980 Mercedes Benz 280TE
cylinders: 6 cylinders
paint color: blue
title status: rebuilt
Selling my 1980 Mercedes Benz 280TE wagon.
Rare Euro car with the 185hp M110 twin cam engine and a 4 speed manual. 280TE’s are rare and this the only one I’ve seen here in the US that has a manual gearbox. Nice car , can be driven daily and has been in my daily rotation since I’ve bought it. Could use a bit of cosmetic work that will be fixed by a paint job. I bought it from Oregon about 4 years ago and have driven it regularly since. Recent clutch and tires. It has a rebuilt title because the car was driven with the
hood unlatched and it flew up and smashed the wind shield.
It has a bearing noise in 1st gear that’s been there since I’ve owned the car. Suspension functions flawlessly. No A/C car.
