Mercedes-Benz 280 CE Coupé — 1978

A garage find that has been in the same family for 30 years. Since 1992, the car has been off the road. Only 14400 miles driven. Start up service needed. The engine hasn't been started, but it rolls over by hand. Body in normal in a unrenovated condition.

"A well-preserved copy that requires some service, a brake examination, and a start-up review before it is ready for inspection. Nice body and paint, but there are several little blisters on the lower body, as shown in the photographs."

"A well-preserved copy that requires some service, a brake examination, and a start-up review before it is ready for inspection. Nice body and paint, but there are several little blisters on the lower body, as shown in the photographs."


Due to the owners' advanced age, this car is being sold from a car collection in Nybro. It's a great car that has been parked for quite some time. Well-kept yet unrenovated condition. The outside and inside are both in good shape. There are only a few small paint blisters and surface rust on the lower body. It must be inspected and serviced before it may be used. Without a doubt, a brake inspection is in order. The engine is rolling over. MB Coupé with the greatest engine, in fine shape (which was twice as expensive as the equivalent 4-door W-120 model with the smallest engine). It is now a sought-after collector car, and its value has skyrocketed in recent years.

  • Mechanical condition:

    The car has not been tested because it has not been started. A start-up service with oil and a battery is required, as well as inspection/MOT

  • Interior condition:

    It appears to be in decent condition given its age and mileage. A stain on the backrest of the driver's seat, which may most likely be removed with a thorough cleaning.

  • Exterior condition:

    A little surface rust around the moldings, but it hasn't penetrated the paint yet (see photos). Rust on the door step, the tailgate, and the antenna mount.

  • General condition:

    When you look closely at it, it gives a good overall impression. It becomes better using basic means (paint improvement and servicing).

Facts about the model

Mercedes-Benz W123 är en personbil tillverkad av den tyska biltillverkaren Mercedes-Benz mellan januari 1976 och januari 1986.

123:an ersatte W114/115 som Mercedes-Benz volymmodell. Med en och samma grundmodell lyckades man täcka in flera marknadssegment, från enkla taxibilar till lyxiga kupéer. Under långa perioder var 123:an Västtysklands bäst säljande bil, i konkurrens med Volkswagen Golf och BMW 3-serie.

Produktionen uppgick till 2 696 915 exemplar.

Coupé (C123)
I mars 1977 presenterades coupé-versionerna 230 C, 280 C och 280 CE och senare samma år dieselversionen 300 CD för den amerikanska marknaden. Bilarna byggde på ett chassi med kortad hjulbas. Till skillnad från sedanmodellen hade även den fyrcylindriga 230 C samma rektangulära strålkastare och kromdetaljer som återfanns på 280 och 280E. Coupén byggdes i sammanlagt 99 884 exemplar.

For this reason, they are described from a collector's perspective and may need technical reviews and maintenance service - oil, battery replacement, new tires, brake review, etc. - before they can be used. .
  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends. When you bid at the end of the auction period - and also if you have made an earlier bid - we therefore ask you to read the descriptions carefully, in case something has been changed due to new information.
