I've had six 280's with the M110 engine, including a yellow '76, the most refined of the breed.  It will probably not depreciate much if at all--good-running examples with cosmetic appeal are pretty rare

1976 280 carb, new gas tank, tires, upholstery.  I was the second owner of this car at 92,000 miles.  I sold it to a friend for 5,000.00, he wants to sell it back (he had the interior done for 2,000.00).

there is minimal rust on a wheel well.. but no serious rust, it was garaged it's whole life.

I know this car is sound... paint is great, yellow.

Question is... at 108,000 miles... what do I offer?  I am pretty sure I can always sell it again, if need be, for 5,000.00... but this car is not that desireable.  they don't seem to move well.


I just LOVED the way it drove and such, I sure as HELL don't need it.  I have a 76 TR6, and am rebuilding an 86 CJ7... so I don't need this car... but I can't bring myself to let it go... especially into the 'wilds'

Hi All,

rear bumper, the vertical pieces behind the tail lights, question.
were plastic strips in between those verticals and the main bumper body as there are on the front bumper?
I do not have any in back.
Does someone have part numbers for those?
Does anyone have spare ones I could purchase?

Thanks much!!

You can try removing the metal grille above--there are two spring-loaded pins that hold the grille in place--then look to see whether the cable has popped off the control lever.

Another work-around is to position the valve on the firewall in the mid-way position in cold weather and use the passenger-side lever to regulate cabin heat--good luck

The driver's side heater control knob on my '73 280 is not able to move the cable that controls the valve lever against the firewall.  The valve lever works manually, but the instrument knob does not move the lever.  I am sure the knob and cable have separated.  Is there an "easy" way to take of the heater instrument panel to get a look at the cable controls?  I do not want to start prying and break something.

Looking for information on the pre-heater thermostat/valve on a '73 280 sedan (w114).  Can these be fixed or replaced?  ...or are these no longer used by owner.  I live in NJ and like to drive on nice cold days and wondered if these units help any bit.  Mine seems to be frozen/broken.

Hi Tom

Yep thats the one, but it's for sedan.

This is what I have heard:
Outside left mirror A1148100116
Outside right mirror A1148100216
EPC says those mirrors are unique to coupes.

So they are different from sedan.

So where to find one, It's been sold in US as a option for W114 coupe and UK is other place where those have been in use.
