SOLD SALE PENDING
1970 Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL 6.3.
The car was previously from Oceanside California and we have the service records dating back to 1986 pictured here same owner since 1987.
This car is finished in DB181 Light Beige paintwork (as per under hood data tag), with contrasting brown leather interior. Fitted with its factory 6.3-liter V8 engine and 4 speed Automatic transmission this car has faired well over the past 48 years and runs very well indeed. The motor is turn key with no smoking, and transmission shifts smooth, just as Mercedes intended.
The car is what I would describe as a “Survivor” and is very honest throughout. The car appears to have received a re-paint in its life and is very presentable in appearance. The interior is original and does show signs of ageing just as you would expect with the cars age. Originality is supported by the presence of its factory glove box owner’s manual, both Mercedes Benz keys, and also the all important “Becker Grand Prix US 108FM Radio” These radios were a big expense when checking the box at the dealership back in the day in the US.
The hydraulics on the car work well once the car is started with the self-leveling operating after a few seconds. The underside of the car is clean and looks to be as original as could be. I would like to state this car is nearly 50 years old, has been in storage for some time, so please do not expect a new car, just an honest old one. Please note the condition of the doors, and the interior panels, very clean for age. All four electric windows work just as they should, a cared for car this.
The Hagerty value on these 1970 300 SEL’s is an average of $36,800 for a “Fair” car with a concours example hitting just shy of $100K. This car is priced to sell, please do your homework before contacting us… This vehicle has the scope to be worth considerably more, whether you’re a DIY garage guy, or a professional shop. This was a California car then Texas car, so great condition, odometer shows just over 74,000 miles… Looking at the car I would be inclined to believe this genuine – but cannot substantiate.
This is an ideal opportunity to own a classic Mercedes for entry level classic car monies, and also extend your investment with some weekend work to improve. A very original car with oodles of class. You are more than welcome to inspect, we urge you to do so… Be Quick!
