This 1977 Mercedes-Benz S-Class 280SE presents in a refined silver finish, as shown in the detailed exterior images provided. The body features a bright grille and trim, quad headlights, fog lights, a driver-side mirror, and a power antenna. Finished in silver, it also includes flush-mount European-specification headlights, a locking fuel-filler cap, and European-specification chrome bumpers with black impact strips. The car rides on steel 14” wheels adorned with chrome hubcaps, wrapped in 195/75 EVERGREEN tires. It boasts a four-wheel independent suspension and disc brakes at all four corners for reliable stopping power.

For US bidders, this 280SE is directly importable without modification as it is EPA & DOT exempt being greater than 25 years old. For more information on transport/import please visit our Transport/Import page here.


The vehicle's history includes its importation to the USA by the original owner, who purchased it from a Mercedes-Benz dealership in Germany in 1978-1979. The current owner acquired the car in 2023 and imported it from the USA to Canada, becoming the second owner. The car was resprayed during the original ownership in its factory color to give the car a refreshed look. It also features aftermarket modifications, including a radio unit, speakers, and aftermarket tinted glass.

Cosmetic flaws include some rock chips and paint chipping on the rear right bottom of the bumper due to wear and tear over the years. However, the rest of the paint remains in fair condition for the vehicle's age, with no fading or cracks in the bumpers.

The wheels are original equipment manufacturer (OEM) chrome Mercedes hubcaps, which are period-correct for this model. Spare OEM hubcaps that are not chrome are also included in the sale.


Inside, the blue cloth upholstery is accented with wood veneers on the center console and dashboard. The car features a four-spoke steering wheel with VDO instrumentation, including a 170-mph speedometer, an analog clock, and auxiliary gauges.

The six-digit mechanical odometer reads 118k miles, with approximately 1k miles added by the current owner over the past year. Notably, the car is not fitted with a sunroof

Notable services and maintenance completed include recent fuel system updates, brake servicing, and an oil change. Additionally, the sale includes hubcaps, a set of tires, belts, two keys, and the original owner's manual. The vehicle does have a slow leak from the rear differential.


The naturally aspirated 2.8-liter inline-six engine delivers power to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transmission. Recent maintenance performed by the seller includes replacement of the fuel filter and fuel pump, an oil change, brake servicing, and welding of the exhaust to fix a leak.

This Euro-spec 1977 Mercedes-Benz S-Class 280SE is a remarkable classic with a well-documented history and significant recent maintenance, ready for a new owner to appreciate its enduring elegance and performance.
