I have to do a coolant flush on my 72 sel 4.5. How many gallons does the radiator hold? Is there another coolant that is as good as the mercedes coolant?

Zerex G-05. It likely holds 9 or 10 quarts. One gallon may not get you quite at a 50/50 mix.

MB manual commands that cooling system contains apprx 13.5 litres = 456.49 liq.oz (US) = 3.57 Gallons (US)

Radiator only contains far less but I believe you meant for whole cooling system.
With regards to coolant mixture, here's MB recomendation (check the attachment file)
