Completely Original 1972 Mercedes Benz 280SEL Sedan

New to our Pleasanton showroom is this highly desirable 1972 Mercedes Benz 280SEL 4.5 4 Door Sedan with factory black exterior paint and a tan leather interior. It features the original 4.5L eight-cylinder engine under the hood with the numbers-matching automatic transmission, both of which have never been restored over the life of this desirable vehicle. This one is also very nicely equipped with factory air conditioning, power windows, a sunroof and more, which makes it one heck of a survivor at the current price point.

True Survivor that’s Never Been Restored

The current owner of this 1972 Mercedes Benz 280SEL 4 Door Sedan purchased it in 2015 from the 2nd lifetime owner with intentions of fully restoring it from top to bottom. He was drawn to this example because it is completely unmolested with everything factory still in place, all the way down to the cigarette lighter and owner’s manuals. It does show some significant signs of aging, however, and a good bit of the exterior paint has chipped/faded. The interior also shows average signs of wear but it’s very clean throughout.

Additionally, this 1972 Mercedes Benz 280SEL Sedan starts right up and drives like an absolute dream- it’s ready to be enjoyed today as a luxurious driver. The engine sounds great and it still glides down the open road like a fine sedan should. It is very easy to fall in love with this classic because it’s simply overflowing with potential.

An Absolute Steal at the Current Asking Price

Overall, this 1972 Mercedes Benz 280SEL Sedan is in beautiful original condition and it can be enjoyed as a prestigious driver right away. It would also make an incredible project vehicle as well though because it really doesn’t need a whole lot to be gorgeous once again. Either way though, it’s an absolute steal at the current asking price!
