West Coast Classics are proud to present an exceptional example of this 1972 year model (8/72 built) Mercedes-Benz 280SEL (W108.067 Series) 4.5L V8 Sedan (built between the dates 4/71-11/72) and obviously always coveted with no signs of any accidents and owned by only two very careful and mature owners, with the second owner having owned the car for some 18 years until this year when we acquired the car. The car was ordered and still retains it's original 'Light Beige' (Color Code 181) factory color paint which is matched to it's original 'Dark Brown' MB-Tex interior and which boasts factory air conditioning, sunroof, power front disc brakes, books, build sheet/card & records!

The car is an original US import version and mostly still in all original condition with the highly desirable 4.5L/230HP V8 cylinder engine and this is a car loaded with factory options including power steering, power front disc brakes, power windows, air conditioning, central locking, matching factory color Mercedes hub cap wheels centers, stunning and all original 'Dark Brown 'MB-Tex' (which is a high quality Mercedes produced vinyl seating, which is technically a leatherette and very close to leather, but notorious for being much easier to maintain and extremely durable) interior with matching carpet and kick panel carpet and heat absorbing glass and central locking! Please note that the car's original radio has been replaced with an after market cassette player.

The car reportedly has had only two owners until the year 2021 and it has no cracks in the original dashboard or wood veneer, exceptional condition chrome, including both front and rear bumpers and all the typical rust-prone areas are rust-free and there are no signs of any accidents or damage whatsoever! This car is a true stock survivor and must be seen to be seen and driven to be fully appreciated - the engine is extremely strong and responsive with excellent oil pressure and no oil leaks and which sounds absolutely magnificent and the recently rebuilt transmission shifts smoothly through the gears and the engine temperature always remains cool. All the options are working as they should including all the power options and the ice cold air conditioning. Please note that the car was serviced at the Mercedes-Benz dealership of Winston-Salem, NC and other dealerships since new!

This is one exceptionally fine example of a mostly completely original 1972 Mercedes 280SE 4.5L V8 Sedan in rare turn-key ready daily appreciating, daily driving and daily head-turning condition! Perfect for the Mercedes collector or enthusiast or any classic car enthusiast looking for an affordable and reliable daily driving classic European car!
