  • Arriving in late 1969, the new 4.5-litre V-8 featured 200 brake horsepower and added a little extra bump in performance, which for many proved to be a worthwhile upgrade over the six-cylinder option. From the six-cylinder 300 SEL to the 300 SEL 4.5, 0–62 mph times dropped from 12.2 seconds to 10 seconds flat. As the top-of-the-line sedan, amenities such as power steering, a radio, and an automatic transmission were standard equipment on the 300 SEL 4.5, along with Mercedes-Benz’s supremely comfortable air suspension. This model would see a relatively short production run, with the last example leaving the production line in September of 1973.

    The exquisite 1973 Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL 4.5 sedan featured here is finished in gorgeous moss green metallic over Cognac tan leather interior. This highly optioned original California 4.5 sedan has recently been serviced and is ready for its next caretaker. Just released from a private California collection where it was beautifully maintained and restored some years ago. I personally believe the investment potential of this extremely rare and desirable model will grow beyond your imagination. This stunning vehicle is offered to the investment-minded collector or enthusiast who appreciates the potential of this up-and-coming classic.

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months


    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or credit@schmitt.com
