Known History

The L 4500, introduced in March 1953, was a bestseller for Mercedes in the middle-class truck segment. From 1953 to 1961, 73' 033 vehicles of the model, renamed L 312 from mid-1954, were built. With the proven OM 312 4.6-litre diesel engine, the Mercedes 5-speed transmission and about 4.5 tons payload capacity, the model was extremely popular with transport and construction companies. This L 4500 was delivered to Switzerland and first registered on March 25, 1954. With the flatbed body and tarpaulin structure, the truck can carry a payload of 4'300 kg with a gross vehicle weight of 8'500 kg. The Mercedes was certainly repainted some years ago, the interior is in original condition. Engine and gearbox are in good condition and are working perfectly. This L 4500 should certainly attract attention on the road, making it an excellent advertising medium for various trades. The last Swiss MOT including veteran status has been completed in June 2019.
