Basem ,

I think you're right about the headrests. Some how I've never noticed the rear ones before. They look very nice though.  Thanks for sharing your pictures .

                       Regards, Lou

So, have we ran out of nice cars to post pictures of in this tread?
I hope not, so i`ll post some pics of my 1971 280 SE 3.5 Coupe, a very original car with all original interior and chrome. It`s been resprayed in the original colour 387 Blau Metallic and in my opinion one of the nicest colours available back in the day ;D

Very nice car, very nice color! Are these 15" bundt? I'm more used to see these later low grill models with US type stacked headlights, even in Europe, to the point I thought they all came like that. Is it the case? Are these euro headlights original on that car?

Thank you :)
These are 15 inch ATS bundt with polished rim, i think they suit the low grille cars very well..
The euro headlamps are original on all euro cars, but the stacked headlights where available as an factory option, and many (most) owners of euro cars have changed to the stacked type along the way.
In my opinion the euro lamps looks a lot better, and i think it`s cool that they have become a rare sight so they will remain on this car forever..

I wish I had my notes in front of me but one of the W111/112 coupes, presumably either the 300se or the 280se 3.5, came from the factory with stacked headlamps even in Europe. This was to differentiate it from the previous "lowly" models. Anyone have the details?

Jan  is correct, in Europe only the w109 top model 300 SEL 6.3 came from the factory  with the stacked halogen lights. Part of this halogen headlamp setup were the H1 foglights.

Thank you, you are correct. I remembered it being an "up-powered" model, but being so deep in the Coupe world I got confused apparently. I wanted to reply to avoid any confusion in the future for anyone who may read my previous post.

While searching the Daimler Media Archive I came across this photo and liked the composition.
Wish I had one of them.  ;)

You should specify which one, or does it not matter  ;)
