This is a super-clean and original 1973 Mercedes Benz 280SE 4.5-liter luxury survivor. This one-owner W116 U.S. model was ordered overseas then shipped to Chesapeake, VA then on to dry eastern Oregon in 1976 where it remained until this year. Currently stored in sunny Southern California. Has documented 89,863 miles and full original records.

Vehicle has very lustrous shiny paint that appears 95%+ original. Bumpers are excellent condition. All bright trim and emblems are in great condition. Small road chips touch ups. There is a small amount of rust bubbling in bottom corners of the front fenders. Undercarriage and wheel wells are extremely clean. It was well protected by a 1980 full rust protection treatment (original receipts included).

Original blue interior is excellent shape with no rips or tears in seats or door panels. Doors jambs very clean. Original excellent carpet and factory floor mats-even the center console insert. Real wood dash inserts in very nice condition. Headliner is very good. Has the original Becker Europa II radio that may need fix.

Full documents starting with original West German order book and paperwork. Complete original set of manuals including owners, stamped maintenance and warranty, emissions and stereo. Original computer build card and metal identification card. Service and maintenance records back to 1973. Vehicle has the original owner’s 1976 Oregon title and the original registration card.

Engine compartment is clean, complete and unmolested with many original decals. Car starts quickly; engine runs smooth, brakes well and shifts nicely. Headlight, parking, signal, parking and interior courtesy light all work. Horn works. Power windows all work and move quickly. A/C fan blows though compressor needs charge. Wipers original and need fix. New correct size white wall tires and very nice hubcaps. Trunk in great shape with no rust and has original mat, jack, tools and spare whitewall tire.

This is a rare opportunity to own a low mileage and well-documented, unmolested, Mercedes 280SE 4.5 luxury sedan.
