There are cars one comes across that you should at less drive, if not own. One of these is a Mercedes Benz Sedan, and the Classics like this 280E W114 will only again in value in the years to come.

Mercedes Benz have always been known of their great cars building skills and that we vehicles has stood the test of time which doesn’t fall short with our W114 280E

 

Let’s tell you a little about this History of the W114/W115.

So this series came after the Fintail W110 and before for the W123. And these cars were built between 1968 and 1976 which make our car very special as it was only registered in 1978 and the W123 was available at the time.

The W114/W115 came in 3 body style, the 2 door Coupe, 4 Door Sedan and then the 4 Limousine with a host of engine derivatives from a 2.0 L to the 2.8 L in our Mercedes, with options also of Petrol or Diesel. Innovations on these cars at the time were the Bosch D-Jetronic fully electronic fuel injection system, there centre console with floor shift and the ribbed taillights that was carried on into the W123.

 

So having a look at our special Mercedes W114. Most of these cars came in beige but makes this car different is the Olive-Green Leather Interior, seems that we have mentioned this you will find that this low mileage as very little wear in the interior and seems like she has been a Sunday special drive vehicle with its forma owners.

As all Mercs are her the engine is strong and reliable and with ease be able to do a 1000-mile road trip without missing a beat and the gearbox changes are smooth and kicks back happily when the road turns up the hills.

The suspension is firm but gives you a luxurious ride and on the Alloy Wheels (but we have a set of Hubcaps of the Car so for the original look you with just need the steel rims)

This car was fitted with AC from the Factory, but it was removed but all the parts are there to reinstall this feature.

The Body and chassis are straight and rust free with a good paint work.

 

Overall, this Mercedes Benz W114 280E is a bit of a Time Piece and is looking for a great new home and road trips at stretch her legs. If this is what you are looking for in a Classic give us a call our come view her amongst others of her class.
