1973 Mercedes-Benz S-Class 280SEL 4.5V8

1973 Mercedes-Benz W108 280SEL 4.5 V8 - Floorshift Car!!

Few vehicles are as distinctive and unique as the 108 and 109 chassis Mercedes-Benz vehicles. Although there are other vehicles that are instantly recognizeable - the Gullwing Mercedes, he '57 Chevy, nd the DeLorean to name a few - there is no other vehicle so classy, et affordable as a 108 or 109 chassis Mercedes-Benz. These models also made their way into many shows and movies - and still do, ven to this day. From Seinfeld ("The Jimmy") to The Simpsons ("The Bart Wants What It Wants"), nd every genre in between, he 108 and 109 will live on forever.

The 108 and 109 Chassis Mercedes Benz vehicles are the last truly hand-built S-Class Mercedes vehicles (aside from some current AMG models). They were also the last vehicles with the infamous "Mercedes look" - stacked headlamps (on North American versions), urvy hoodlines, nd a very large front grille. To this day, any people can still recognize their lines as distinctively Mercedes, ven if they were not even born when the model was still in production.

The Mercedes-Benz W108 and W109, tyled by noted automobile designer Paul Bracq, ere built in Stuttgart in what was then West Germany, rom 1965 until 1972. Although production ended in 1972, ome vehicles were marketed and sold as 1973 model year versions in North America. They were typically late-production vehicles, nd some didn’t arrive in North America until 1973.

This Beauty was born in August of 1972, nd it was titled as a 1973 Model, aking it one of the last W108 V8 models rolling of the production line!!!!

What makes this beauty special is that it is All Original car – Original Paint, riginal Interior, nd Original Drive Train!

Mercedes made only 8,173 280SEL 4.5 V8’s in period from May of 1971 until November of 1972, nd this beauty is one of them!!! Also, .5 V8 was only offered to the North American Market, aking it particularly desirable in Europe! Add the highly desirable automatic floor shifter to the mix, nd you have a something that lots of collectors and Mercedes-Benz Enthusiasts are looking for!!!

About the car:

Its Original Dark Red (#542G Dunkelrot) paint has a very nice presence, nd it makes this German Luxury Sedan look very elegant and timeless!! It still has a beautiful shine and luster, nd just upon closer inspection you can notice some imperfections and blemishes in the paint (some paint cracking on top of the hood and front fenders – mainly because of engine heat and the fact that paint is original and over 43 years old!!). We could have painted the front end, ut that would take away from its originality, atina and its overall beauty and the fact that Cars are original only once!!

Chrome is very nice and complete, ith nice and healthy luster and this beautiful sedan is a head turner and conversation piece everywhere it goes.

This Mercedes is very solid, nd its undercarriage is all original and unmolested!! Body is also straight, nd all doors, ood, nd trunk are operating with ease, ith everything lining up as it should. Factory VIN # stamping on the front radiator support is another sign of originality of this car. (please see pictures)

There is not a lot of 280SEL 4.5 V8’s out there in this solid, riginal and preserved condition!! As Mercedes made only a little bit over 8,100 of 4.5 V8 SEL’s, here is not a lot of them left period!!!! Add a rare floor gearshift option, nd number of survivors is even smaller!!


Its original and elegant Black MB-Tex interior shows beautifully! Seats look great and are still comfortable and very supportive. Carpets and headliner are in great shape as well!! Also importantly there are no cracks on the dash, nd top of the door panels – trait of cars that spent majority of life on the hot sun with no protection!

Only thing not original on the inside is updated CD-Player, ith Satellite Radio option, hich is actually not a bad thing as you can listen to plethora of your favorite tunes, hile cruising down the road in this beauty!

-Engine & Transmission

4.5 Liter V8 Engine is strong and powerful as ever!

Automatic Transmission shifts smoothly and effortlessly through every gear and this German Yacht handles great, nd it is very comfortable.

Matching Tires are like brand new, ith lots of thread and life left in them!

Air Condition works as it should, nd this Classic is ready for some fun cruises!!!! There is nothing better than driving down the road in your Classic Mercedes-Benz!!!!

This beauty comes complete with its original maintenance books and manuals, riginal tool set, s well as the Original Temporary registration from the first owner who purchased it back on March 6th of 1973!!!!
