1973 Mercedes-Benz 280 SEL 4.5

Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this very attractive 1973 Mercedes-Benz 280 SEL 4.5. Owned by a prominent California collector from 1981 until the early 2000s, it lived briefly in Connecticut before being sold to an Atlanta owner in 2004 where it has remained ever since. This W108 is finished in code 387 Blue Metallic over cream leather interior, a striking combination. It's nicely optioned with leather, sunroof and A/C and has accrued 59,000 miles. Paint and bodywork show to a nice standard with excellent chrome, moldings and trim -- and no known rust. The interior is correct and well preserved with very little wear on seating surfaces, door cards and headliner. Cocoa mats were recently added and bring a nice pop of color to the cabin. Very nice wood.

All instrumentation, lighting and electrical accessories are in working order with the exception of the clock and the Becker Europa radio -- the sunroof works properly and air conditioning has been converted to R134a and is blowing cold. Heat and vent levers recently overhauled and function as new (including backlighting). The engine compartment is particularly tidy and reveals a number of newer parts including hood pad, coolant hoses, A/C hoses, power steering hoses, fuel pump and tune-up items -- tires are also newer and mounted on correct 14-inch wheels with matching hubcaps. Recent tie rods and muffler. No known service needs.

This 108 drives well and is quite comfortable and poised at highway speeds -- whenever we spend time with a good example like this it reminds us just how well-built and "put together" these old Mercs are. Included with the sale are ownership history to 1981, service records from the current and previous Atlanta owners, the owner's manual, factory spare and jack. For more information about this 1973 Mercedes-Benz 280SEL 4.5 for sale at Motorcar Studio in Atlanta, please call 404-692-5250.
