Seller's Notes:

Background: The 'new' S-class generation development began in 1966 and was introduced at the Paris Motor Show in September,1972. 1973 was a landmark model year, a great leap forward into the modern age for Mercedes Benz technology and design. With focus on improved driver and passenger safety technology, the 450SEL represented the first re-engineering and redesign of its top line sedans since the 1960s, featuring a more stable security passenger cell with a stiffened roof frame structure. High strength roof and door pillars, along with other reinforced zones, provided enhanced vehicle occupant protection. Doors unlatch with a gratifying mechanical click, and close with a bank vault-like "ring", a mark of quality. The car was designated the "S Klasse", nomenclature still in use by Mercedes today to call out its flagship. Features & Technologies rarely found by its contemporaries: Aluminum single overhead 4.5 Litre V8 engine, 4-wheel disk brakes, fully integrated air conditioning, first year for OEM radial tires, transistorized ignition, cruise control, dual band Becker stereo radio, and safety designed interior construction.Safety, craftsmanship and no-compromise engineering is what it's all about. Named "European Car of the Year" in 1973; Road & Track named it "The Best Sedan in the World". Will gladly assist with shipping within the lower 48 states
