Known History

Equipped with the prestigious 3.5 litre V8 engine, a Mercedes-Benz 300SEL 3.5 cost a massive 43'000 Swiss Francs when new, truly a car for upper class connoisseurs with high demands (and deep pockets). With its long wheelbase and the ultra-comfortable air-suspension the Mercedes was very popular as chauffeur driven limousines for industry captains and 9'583 examples were sold between November 1969 and September 1972. The example we have here today has been enjoyed by only three owners and the mileage stands at an extremely low 87'500 km. This is explained by the fact, that the first owner had the car deregistered and parked under cover at his premises from 1977 to 2014. In 2016 the SEL received a thorough restoration and a respray in the original colour. The worn fabric on the driver seat side bolsters was replaced with original spec material. Brake discs and callipers were replaced or overhauled and a new fuel pump was installed in 2018. Rare and sought-after Mercedes Saloon with power steering and sunroof in very good condition. The most recent Swiss MOT including veteran status has been completed in January 2017.
