PPW Motorcars is pleased to offer this beautiful 1973 Mercedes-Benz 280SEL 4.5, which was exquisitely colored in Dunkelrot (Dark Red) over a powdery, supple Bamboo Interior! Being one of 8,173 produced world-wide in over the entire production period and the only one we have ever come across in Burgundy over a Bamboo interior, it is our opinion that this is the most beautifully ordered example possible! The stunning and timeless colors are both period correct and still fashionable today! This car would be perfectly suited in a country home in the south of France or downtown Beverly Hills, elegance has a place everywhere!

What makes this vehicle truly worth owning is the level of detail and hand assembled craftsmanship that is present in no automobile currently produced. This magnificent motorcar was produced in an era when owning a Mercedes-Benz meant something significant. There was no such thing as a $299 a month lease on a new C-Class; ownership was reserved for just a select few. With the factory window sticker showing an MSRP of over $11,000! To put that in perspective, that is almost twice as expensive as a 1973 Cadillac Deville! It combined the road holding ability of a sports car, the power of a muscle car, and thus set and is still the standards for opulence and comfort. This was a vehicle for the most discerning individual to whom sacrificing any virtue of the vehicle for the sake of another was unacceptable.

This particular example has been ordered with every option available; fitted with Power Windows, Automatic Transmission, Preservation for Paint, Auto Antenna for Radio, Heated Insulated Glass, Continental Tires, Spare Wheel, Power Brakes, Air Conditioning, Classic Hubcap Wheels, Becker Radio, and Much More! We are proud to offer what we believe to be the finest examples of the coveted W108 Body Mercedes available today; this is an opportunity of a lifetime to own the best!

Going off the simplest quality any collector item possesses, condition, this magnificent motorcar has been meticulously maintained and driven very sparingly. The paint is gorgeous, the engine well kempt, the interior is spectacular from the dash, to wood, carpet, and more. More importantly, the underside is solid and even the wheel wells are gorgeous original untouched. All owners have followed the original’s loving care by servicing, oil changing it yearly regardless of mileage, and much more! Further, the vehicle just underwent a major service where it received an oil/filter change, coolant flush, spark plugs, air filter, and needs nothing to be enjoyed today! Further, the excellent original interior is a testament to the mileage, along with the other details that are consistent and very clean original throughout. Offered for the true collector, investor, or enthusiast who understands and appreciates the investment potential of this extremely rare, top of the line, well ordered, and fantastic condition Mercedes-Benz 280SEL 4.5! Bid with confidence-you will not be disappointed in this truly amazing motorcar!
