Vince's 1975 280SE
« on: 09 September 2021, 05:06 PM »
Hello everyone,

I spent the last few weeks sourcing all kind of infos on this forum. I thought that it might be a good idea to register since I bought a W116 last Friday !

It's a euro spec 280SE from 1975 that I found on marketplace last month in New Brunswick. After thinking about it for 3 weeks I decided to call the seller to see the car. Long story short, I fell in love with the car after driving it and a basic inspection. I drove it back home for 300km and it did great. Unfortunately, I don't have the history of the car so I know very little about it's past and how it made it's way to Canada.

Today it failed a provincial inspection, so now I'm back on earth and I have work to do to make it compliant with QC regulations.

I don't want a show car but I want it to be a nice driver and durable.  I'll try to keep you posted.
