1973 Mercedes 280SE with the 4.5 Litre Fuel Injected V8. This is a last of the hand assembled Mercedes. Built for the American market, the 4.5L 230 hp V-8 is responsive and thirsty. Consuming 11 to 15 miles per gallon this is a costly car to drive, but well worth the cost.

Exceptional car with 87,310 original miles!!

This car is an exceptionally clean car with absolutely no rust and recent body restoration (7 years old). Mechanically, this car needs some work to make it a 100% perfect car. The car runs and drives and is currently tagged as a Historic vehicle with a clean title. The car is ran very little and that has impacted the engine and trans. The engine leaks oil and would require being regasketted, then trans would need the same as well as seals. Air condition currently blows warm air (not sure the extent or repairs required). This car is great for around town shows and drives, but if driving longer distances, it would be best to first seal the engine and trans. The interior woul require minor fixes to make 100%, but is still in very good shape for its age, the wood is in very good condition (original interior). All in all a very clean and nice car.
