A 300SEL 4.5 sold for a massive 40% premium over a 280SE 4.5 in 1972.

The 300SELs were the preferred choice for diplomatic and chauffeur use around the world due to the extra length and the sophisticated ride quality offered by the air suspension.

This particular SEL presents itself beautifully and behaves exceptionally well on the road. It's one of the best feeling 300SELs I've driven.

Paint depth/gloss, sheet metal quality and panel gaps are regional show quality. The cognac interior is superb and displays a consistent subtle patina of age.

The burlwood is excellent and also displays a subtle patina of age. The door panels appear unblemished as does the headliner.

Dash pad is perfect and carpets are in excellent order. Bumper alignment is superb.

Door closure is excellent and shutlines are factory correct. All exterior brightwork is excellent with minor evidence of age.

Wheel covers are essentially unblemished. The trunk area is immaculate. Excellent oil pressure. Excellent transmission shift quality.

Miscellaneous loose ends include: main blower motor inop - AC weak - clock inop.
