Car description

1973 Mercedes 280SEL 4.5 Black/Black. One of the last hand-built sedans from Sindelfingen (It's what the "S" stand for). Originally, this car's top speed was 124 MPH, carrying afullcabin of 4, a real autobahn burner. Odometer reads 94873. Automatic, 3-speed, column shift. Car was purchased new by comedic actor Harvey Korman. It's second owner was an older PA couple. In about 1995, a complete top-end overhaul of the engine was done. Also, the brakes and suspension was overhauled, the exhaust replaced, and new leatherupholstery was installed. (It wasoriginally MB-Tex) The headline was replaced and some rust replaced with welded in steel. It spent some time in Philly, and was stored indoors until I purchased it in 2006. I have kept it indoors since. In about 2008, the fuel injectors were rebuilt and several replaced. The ECU was replaced, the OEM ECU is still with the car. The distributor was re-wired both upper and lower. The engine is very strong, currently runs very well and the car drives well.
Locks, Windows, and A/C works. The car needs a paint job. Everything but the hood is OEM paint. There is some surface rust. I believe the hood to be a 1990'sOEM replacement part. The dash needs cosmetics, there is currently no sound system in the car, although OEM speakers are still there. The air conditioning is an after market OEM install, it has been upgraded to modern refrigerants by thesame shop that did the above mentioned engine overhaul in the 1990s. Therefrigerant needs to be recharged.Working the cosmetics of this car could more than double its value.
I have a number of parts/kits to perform some of the cosmetic stuff, they come with the car. This car drives and rides very well. It has been driven very lightly in the last 12years.
Many additional photographs including under carriage upon request.
