eBay watch: Unrestored 1970s Mercedes 280SE car – in original condition


Right now this is just 99 pence. Yes, an unrestored 1970s Mercedes 280SE car for under £1. Not that it'll end up at that, I'm sure.

But that's the price of this 1970 car, which has spent most of its life in California and in dry storage for the last 15 years, doing around 85,000 miles in total over the years. It has no structural rust or rot, but perhaps does need some work to bring it back to its best.

A good canvas to work with too, with original paint, engine, wheels, interior, glass carpets, instruments and fittings, a 'reliable' 2.8L straight six-cylinder motor, with original fuel injection and a car that has been used as an 'occasional' drive in the recent past.

It's a real unspoilt gem, which you can see more of on the listing. As we said, just 99 pence and no reserve. Someone could get a genuine bargain – and a very cool thing to drive.
