For Sale: 1972 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL in Mill Valley, California

$39,000 (OBO)

Vehicle Description

This car is a real head turner with a Moss Green Metallic exterior and Cognac Leather interior all fully restored in 2014. The detailed 4.5 V8 moves this car swiftly and smoothly with a 3 speed automatic. Originally purchased in Beverly Hills, CA and spent most of its life in California until it was brought to Oklahoma and restored. I bought it in St. Louis and drove it 2000 miles to Mill Valley, CA without a hiccup where it has been garaged and pampered. With 119,000 miles on the odo, the paint, interior, chrome, stainless trim and weather stripping are all in excellent condition. A few touched up paint spots and some chipped interior wood edges are the only flaws. The Leather dash top is perfect and the burled wood dash has a fine luster with no cracks or fading. This car ran faultlessly in two annual 500 mile car rallies on curvy California foothill routes. Pretty enough to be a trailer queen, but she prefers to be run.

Features include rebuilt air suspension, 4.5L V8 fuel injected 180HP engine, 3 speed automatic with floor shifter, power disc brakes, power steering, power windows and door locks, power sunroof, fog lights, new retro style stereo/CD player with four new speakers (original Becker Europa is included), tool kit, new spare tire, newer narrow stripe whitewalls with less than 5K on them and new chrome wheel well guards.

Over $43,000 in sorting and improvements including the $3K stereo system, coco mats, new mahogany shift knob, new leather steering wheel cover, new front brake rotors and pads (Jan/'18), front and rear seats resprung and padding added, new timing chain and tension assembly, new hood heat pad, rebuilt water pump, new Bilstein shocks, new radiator fan clutch, recored radiator, new power steering pump, new suspension bushings, right side mirror installed, upper and lower oil cooler lines replaced, new pressure sensor, new fuel pump, new air slide valve and valve cover, rebuilt vacuum advance, new fuel injection nozzles, new cold start valve, and new left front power windor regulator. Air suspension rebuilt by previous owner and operates perfectly. AC has been serviced and blows cold. All gauges operate fully even the low fuel light. The clock keeps perfect time. The only feature not working is the manual foot pump for the windshield washers. A high quality car cover is included.
