West Coast Classics are proud to present an exceptional example of this original southern California 1973 year model (8/72 built) Mercedes-Benz 280SE (W108.067 Series) 4.5L V8 Sedan (built between the dates 4/71-11/72 with this particular car being one of the last models built in 8/1972) and obviously always coveted with no signs of any accidents and owned by only one very careful and mature owner until the year 2020 when it was sold to only it's second ever southern California owner from whom we acquired the car. The car was ordered and still retains it's original 'Tobacco Brown' (Color Code 423) factory color paint which is matched to it's original 'Palomino' MB-Tex interior and boasts a center console with floor shifter and factory air conditioning.

The car is an original US import version to southern California 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 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 CD player.

The car reportedly had only one southern California owner until the year 2020 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 always primarily serviced in recent years and only recently fully serviced at the renown 'Malibu Motors', independent Mercedes specialists of Santa Monica, CA and has a clean bill of health with a new valve job with new intake valves, exhaust valves, new timing chain & tensioner, head gasket sets, new front & rear shocks, new motor mounts, transmission mounts, all new fan belts, new front brake calipers & hoses & pads, etc for turn key and piece of mind driving today!

This is one exceptionally fine example of a mostly completely original 1973 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!
