1972 Mercedes-Benz 280SE 4.5 – One Take

This 1972 Mercedes 280SE 4.5 is a stunning example of the golden era of full-size Mercedes sedans. It is a two-owner vehicle with records going back to brand new, and with only 70,000 miles on it, in shockingly good condition. It feels solid as a tank, and is magnificent to drive. Its owner, Werner, is a character on his own, and you won’t believe what he paid for such a wonderful classic that he uses as his daily driver in Los Angeles.

Check out Werner’s Design Firm!

    7 grand for that is just stupid. The build quality of those things is unmatched by anything built since. As Matt said, you get the feeling it will never wear out.

    Oh lord, won't you give me a Mercedez Benz–Janis Joplin could have not said it better.These old sedans were the snot (and still the snot in certain circles). I love them.

    Adjusted for inflation, that's nearly $41k. That can't be correct.

    concerning the turning radius,big wheel arches, small slim wheels,these old mercs have turning circles like tanks.

    I am really impressed, i think one of those here in Germany is more than 150k€, but i think he should give it an interior remake. The colours and all could be better.

    This car, and Werner, are all class. Definitely a nice break from all the fidgety kids who struggle with a cadence that doesn't wind up interrupting Matt.

    I didn't know this exact model existed until a few months ago . Shame they were US only, the small body with the 4.5 is a great combo.

    Had a 280SEL in my showroom recently and one of the best sounds was shutting the door. I've seen a crashed one that the doors make that sound

    I think the owner is a contender for the most interesting man in the world

    This review, for some reason, puts me at ease; as if I just took a cruise in this.

    I called it right before he said the price, I don't know why $7k was the price that popped into my head, lol. Lucky man, what an amazing car.

    It's bad when you start to watch and you want to know more about the Porsche in the background than the M-B.
