Description

This Mercedes 280 SEL 4.5 is a very late representative of the extremely successful 108 series. The successor W116 was already rolling off the assembly line when our 280 SEL 4.5, which was offered on behalf of a regular customer, was registered in November 1972.

The original owner was John S. from Napa, California, USA. The car obviously remained in California for a very long time. This assumption is supported by the existing service booklet, which contains entries up to 2003 (at 120,190 miles) - all from California and the extremely good condition of the sheet metal.

We assume that the left spare wheel well was replaced and a small accident on the front right was repaired. We couldn't find any more subsequent sheet metal work.

The car drives extremely well. The automatic shifts simply sensationally. The chronicler himself owns three Mercedes classics of a similar type and age and none of these three Benz can shift gears so smoothly. An invoice from 2012 at 129,367 miles for the work on the transmission is included in the vehicle file.

The interior appears to be mostly original. The seat covers are actually made of leather (code 241), not the MB-Tex that is so typical in the USA.

The paint is OK, but indeed does have some weaknesses.
