MB 280 SE – SE 15th & SE Main, Portland [OR]

May 20th, 2011 by Emir

Understated, classic, handsome, clean, sophisticated, grand…these are all words one could use to describe these vintage 280SE coupes built between 68 and 71 [the convertibles ain’t too hard on the eyes either]. The interrupter c-pillar and proper door handles are so classy, so tasteful. The best part, one of these glorious 2+2 coupes, the last of the hand built MB era, can be had for about the cost of a new C-Class. Life is full of hard choices, fortunately this is not one of them.

Have a great weekend.

  • Those cars have an elegance that’s nearly unmatched. I find the coupes – with all the details you mentioned – infinitely more wonderful than the convertibles.

  • These classic cars have a certain air around them. They speak of class that modern cars cannot match. However, for such old cars that have never been modified, I wonder if insurance still covers them. I think this picture would be better if it showed us the colour of the car.
