Selling an all-original 1972 Mercedes-Benz 280SEL. This is the long wheelbase SEL, which is the flagship model. Next to the legendary 300SEL 6.3, the 280SEL 4.5 in 1972 was the highest performing and most luxurious Mercedes available, with a 4.5-liter V8 engine under the hood providing more than ample power and torque. Finished in factory color Horizon Blue (paint code number 304, looks like a sky blue or baby blue, similar to MB Aqua) with beautiful black interior. The paint is in excellent condition with only a few minor areas of blemish. Headliner very good. Full size spare in trunk.

While always a garage-kept vehicle, there are a few cracks in the dashboard along with scratches on the wood trim at the base of the windshield. This incredibly well cared for, low mile 280SEL is among one of the nicest examples I've ever seen outside of a show. This was a family-owned car which was bought new back in 1972 and passed down. Only 58k original miles makes it a perfect investment! Always an Arizona / California car. Only one area of rust in trunk behind rear tire. Turns on with first crank and drives; this car was babied, but like any car of this age, it needs some ongoing care.

The black vinyl interior is in great shape. No rips or tears can be seen in the seats. Door panels are also in great condition. The steering wheel shows cracks and fronts VDO instrumentation consisting of a 160-mph speedometer, a combination gauge, and an analog clock. The interior features a floor shifter as well as front and rear center armrests with a storage console for front passengers.

Power is provided by a 4.5-liter M117 V8 which is factory rated at 195 horsepower and 264 lb-ft of torque which is sent to the rear wheels through a three-speed automatic transmission. We love the Mercedes-Benz models from the late 1960's and early 1970's. These were manufactured to a standard of excellence, not to a price point, and it shows in each and every aspect.

Serious offers accepted. Serious buyers only. Thank you.
