Vehicle Description

Body Type: Sedan 105,906 Miles Year: 1972 Engine Size: 4.5L Trans: Automatic Fuel Type: Gas Ext color: Black Int color: Red • 1972 Mercedes-Benz 280SEL 4.5 Sedan • Last Year for the Coveted W108 Body! • Just Three Owners from New! • One of Just 8,173 Produced Over All Years! • Only 105,906 Original Miles! • Top of the Line Model! • Spectacular Condition! • Breathtaking Jet Black Exterior! • Fresh Glass Out, Trim Off Repaint! • Powdery and Supple Mulberry Full Leather Interior! • New Leather Seats, Front and Rear! • Replated Chrome Bumpers! • Fitted with Every Conceivable Option! • Sunroof • Power Windows • Functioning Becker Radio • Full Leather Interior • Classic Hubcap Wheels • Power Steering • A/C • New Tires! • Many Service Records Including a Fresh Full Service! • All New Calipers, Rotors, Pads, and Much More! • All Manuals, Brochures, Warranty Books, Service Books, Keys, Tools, Spare Tire, Warranty Plate, etc! • The Best Condition, Most Desirable Colored, and Correct Example to Be Found ANYWHERE! • Incredible Investment Potential! beautiful 1972 Mercedes-Benz 280SEL 4.5, which was exquisitely colored in Jet Black over a powdery, supple, and brand new Mulberry Full Leather Interior! Being one of 8,173 produced world-wide in over the entire production period and the only one we have ever come across in Jet Black with a Mulberry Full Leather interior, it is our opinion that this is the most beautifully ordered example possible! The stunning and timeless colors are both period correct and still fashionable today! What makes this vehicle truly worth owning is the level of detail and hand assembled craftsmanship that is present in no automobile currently produced. This magnificent motorcar was produced in an era when owning a Mercedes-Benz meant something significant. There was no such thing as a $299 a month lease on a new C-Class; ownership was reserved for just a select few. With the factory window sticker showing an MSRP of over $11,000! To put that in perspective, that is almost twice as expensive as a 1972 Cadillac Deville! It combined the road holding ability of a sports car, set and is still the standards for opulence and comfort. This was a vehicle for the most discerning individual to whom sacrificing any virtue of the vehicle for the sake of another was unacceptable. This particular example has been ordered with every option available; fitted with Sunroof, Power Windows, Power Brakes, Air Conditioning, Full Leather Interior, Classic Hubcap Wheels, Becker Radio, and Much More! We are proud to offer what we believe to be the finest examples of the coveted W108 Body Mercedes available today; this is an opportunity of a lifetime to own the best! Making this example even more collectable is the history and documentation accompanying it. Purchased by the original owner on September 27, 1972 from Kumpf Motor Imports INC. in Denver, Colorado this magnificent motorcar has since been meticulously maintained and driven very sparingly. All owners have followed the original's loving care by servicing, oil changing it yearly regardless of mileage, and much more! The vehicle was maintained for decades by Mercedes before transitioning to an independent mechanic and has 8 service stamps in the factory maintenance book! This vehicle comes complete with: Original Delivery Inspection Paperwork, Owner's Service and Warranty Policy Book, Original Owner's Temporary Registration Card, Warranty Plate, Maintenance Book, Parts Catalogue, Seat Belt Operating Instructions Manual, Consumer Information Manual, "Read Before Driving" Manual, Becker Radio Manual, Becker Radio Serial Number Card, Becker Radio Warranty Papers, Wiring Diagram, Keys, Original and Unused Spare Tire, Tool Kit, and MUCH MORE! This is arguably the most complete and best documented 280SEL on the market today and easily the most desirably ordered! Further, the vehicle just underwent a massive service where it received a complete brake system refresh/rebuild (new calipers, rotors, pads, brake lines, fluid flush, and more), an oil/filter change, coolant flush, spark plugs, air filter, and needs nothing to be enjoyed today! Further, it has received a cosmetic restoration over the last three years and has had zero miles put on it since. The vehicle had a gorgeous repaint where all glass, trim, and bumpers were removed, then the chrome bumpers were rechromed, after which the seats were reupholstered in leather, and then had a complete brake system refresh along with many other service procedures to make this vehicle ready to be enjoyed today. The cost of the restoration work nears the value of the vehicle and was truly a labor of love. Offered for the true collector, investor, or enthusiast who understands and appreciates the investment potential of this extremely rare, well documented, top of the line, and fantastic condition Mercedes-Benz 280SEL! Bid with confidence-you will not be disappointed in this truly amazing motorcar!
