Description:

While Mercedes-Benz is the world''s oldest automaker, cars like this 1972 280SE are the ones that truly made the brand mainstream in the US. Boasting a single repaint, this exceptional 4-door very clearly demonstrates the unimpeachable quality for which Mercedes-Benz is justifiably famous. Even at 40 years old, it feels like a new car. The shape is familiar, designed in the golden years of the late-60s and echoes the lines of the mighty 600 series limousines. That''s no accident, and the lovely S-class has a no-nonsense look that was a hallmark of Mercedes-Benz design-after all, these cars were engineered, not merely styled. It has been repainted once in the past, not too long ago but long enough for the paint to acquire a lovely vintage sheen that looks right on the Teutonic sheetmetal. It''s hardly exciting, but that''s not the point at all. Instead, it has immense dignity and presence, and just as you''ve always heard, the doors open and close with a vault-like solidity that you won''t understand until you experience it. The radiator shell can trace its look back to the ''50s, framed by stacked headlights, and lovely chrome bumpers. This car is understatement on wheels. The sumptuous interior is beautifully finished and smartly arranged, something that Mercedes-Benz engineers called functional elegance. Firm, supportive buckets are similar to those found in the sporting SL and they''re all-day comfortable from a time when most cars had living room sofas for seats. The instruments are simple, round dials with clear white-on-black markings and the steering wheel is substantial, like the helm of a ship. Mercedes-Benz used a gated shifter for do-it-yourselfers, again, years before it was fashionable. Standard features include power windows, A/C, and a Becker AM/FM radio set into a lovely wood-paneled dashboard. The condition of everything inside this sedan is exceptional with minimal wear and as you''d expect, and there''s also a sizable trunk, rust-free, of course, with a full-sized spare, tool kit, and jack. The 280SE was built in a time when Mercedes-Benz nomenclature meant something. The 280 refers to the 2.8 liter inline-six, the S is for S-class (which was and still is the top-of-the-line), and E is rumored to stand for "Einspritzen" which means injection, as in fuel injection. Nice, right? Bred for the Autobahn, the silky smooth six purrs away under the hood, giving the big sedan an effortless feel and it feels like it could cruise forever in hushed silence at high speed. Mercedes fans will see echoes of the mighty 300SL in the engine''s intake manifold, and while it looks like there are a lot of hoses and wires stuffed in there, it doesn''t really matter since the sucker''s as reliable as an anvil. The transmission is a smooth-shifting automatic and the suspension is full independent with a disc brake at all four corners, all befitting a high-end luxury car. Classic polished hubcaps wear the three-pointed star and are surrounded with 215/70/14 whitewall radials. As durable as these cars are, not a lot of them have survived in this condition, making this a wonderful opportunity to experience top-of-the-line German luxury for the price of a used Hyundai.
