1972 Mercedes-Benz 300-Series W109 300SEL Description:

This classic low volume W109Benz is being offered for restoration with original 4.5L V8.

This isa rarechance to own one ofthe ultimate comfortable cruisers for an affordable price.

It appears to be largely complete and very rust free in comparison to other non-restored examples of this vintage. Coming from long storage in prior owners estate. Is knownnot to have been driven in thelast3 years. Reason unknown. Will need recommissioning and likely somerepair. Or full restoration recommended, but thisis a very solid example for that!

Body is pretty straight and solid with only small quarter sized surface rust spots on hood and edge front wheel wells. Otherwise very solid underneath for oneof these chassis.Antique white paint holds up reasonablywell aside from these spots and scratch on passenger door from children's bicycle but should be repainted with restoration.Interior overall in decent shape, could use some re-dying and dash wood refinishing. Also somediscoloration on door cards and rear package shelf. Wood around windows willneed redoing. Wood strip front mid-door card missing but otherwise all complete. Front seats recovered in incorrect material. Hubcaps are missing.Trim looks presentable aside from couple small dingsand islargely complete as seen, aside from missing hood ornament.Some disassembly was begun pending restoration butno notable parts seem to be missing.Air suspension does pump up from external source and hold air for a couple days anyway. Car does roll and turn but is not currently running, so will need to be trailered to your location.

Unfortunately title was lost in estate, so this will be sold on Bill of Sale only. This may limit overseas sale until you can obtain title. Key was also misplaced and unavailable. Due to this sensitivity, Actual VIN will be given after deposit. It is similar to listed.

To be clear: This is Sold as a Parts Car with No Title or Key. As is, where is.

Although if you were to only use it for parts, that would be sacrilegeagainst one of these rare examples. It will be up to the buyer to obtain title and key.
