Description

This 1972 Mercedes-Benz 280SE 4.5 was sold new by a dealer in West Virginia, and is optioned with a sunroof, green leather upholstery, and factory A/C. This example has been repainted in its original color and features a well detailed engine bay with re-plated cadmium-coated parts. The car benefits from extensive recent services, including a new timing chain and tensioner, new ignition parts, new shocks, tires, subframe mounts, and differential mounts. This 4.5 is sold with its original books and manuals, and a clean Georgia title held by the selling dealer.

The cabin is upholstered in green Roser leather, rather than the more common MB-Tex. The carpets are matching green square-weave carpet. All of the interior features are said to work correctly. Detailed photos are provided of the dash wood and fittings, and the wood shows a clear, smooth finish in photos. The green leather shows light wear and cracking, primarily centered on the driver’s seat. 55k miles are shown, and are believed to be accurate based on the included maintenance booklet.
