280SEL 4.5 38 years and counting

Yes my father bought it new in 1972 and I just kept driving it after he passed away 10 years later. It's a beauty and of course has always received great care. I just joined the forum in order to contact another member about some parts I need, but now I think it might be an interesting place to visit.

original color

It's the original color (forest green) but I've had it painted about three times (I think )
