I'm selling my 280SE 4.5 to make room for my newly-restored 300SEL 3.5. The car has been a fun rolling restoration project for the past 4 years with over $8,000 spent during that time. I have all service records since 2010.

Paint appears mostly original with dents, chips, marks, and light crazing in various spots. Shines up well and looks nice from a short distance. Minor rear-end damage on rear valance was poorly repaired and painted prior to my ownership. Minor rust-through on inner front rockers not visible from exterior.

Engine runs well and the car has made multiple long-distance trips without issue. A/C works great and cools the car well. Front end rubber parts need replacement as car wanders slightly at high speeds.

Sold new at Benzel-Busch Mercedes in New Jersey on 06-23-1973

Includes original data plate, pre-delivery inspection form, owners manual, and all original service booklets
