1972 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL 4.5L V8 W109

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, the '57 Chevy, and the DeLorean to name a few - there is no other vehicle so classy, yet affordable as a 108 or 109 chassis Mercedes-Benz. These models also made their way into many shows and movies - and still do, even to this day. From Seinfeld ("The Jimmy") to The Simpsons ("The Bart Wants What It Wants"), and every genre in between, the 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), curvy hoodlines, and a very large front grille. To this day, many people can still recognize their lines as distinctively Mercedes, even if they were not even born when the model was still in production.

Now what we have here is a true example of amazing and somewhat crazy German Engineering!!!!

These super saloons paved the way for future luxury-limos with their understated elegance and high performance. The Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL 4.5 was a formidable super saloon available only in the US.

The 300 SEL 4.5 was made from 1971-1972 with only 2,533 built and remains a perennial favorite among auto enthusiasts world-wide. This beauty was born in January of 1972, making it one of the last 300SEL 4.5’s to roll of the factory floor.

His plan before the car was parked was to restore it back to its full glory! According to him it was in great running condition before it was stored and parked. It is not running at the moment, but its rolling and steering with ease.

Air suspension is deflated, and we put in spacers so the vehicle can be rolled without issues or any damage to the undercarriage. Previous owner said that suspension functioned well before the car was parked. Air suspension can be manually inflated, but it deflates back down in couple of hours.

This Mercedes is a fun project, and it is perfect for somebody who wants to do a full restoration, and have a super rare and wonderful show car and the investment, OR for somebody who can fix it up to be their daily driver, and then slowly restore it to its full beauty at their own pace!!

Walkaround

This Mercedes was repainted in early 90’s. Paint is tired, and upon closer inspection, there are someage imperfections, and rust bubbles which need to be addressed.

Chrome is nice and complete.

Leather Interior is all original and complete, but after 48 years, it needs to be refreshed and Original leather seats need to be reupholstered. Everything is there down to its Kienzle Clock and its Original Becker Grand Prix Radio!!! It also comes with power windows, rare Power Sunroof, and original Behr Air Conditioning

All in all it’s a nice and complete SEL that has a lot of potential, and considering its low production figures, it can make a very nice and fun project, and great return on investment!!!

This Beauty is offered at NO RESERVE!!!!!
