1972 280SE 4.5 Starter Go for Autozone to test it.
I had a 1972 that required a starter replacement, bad all the way around, if you sat for a long time, guessing it could be original part. Bad news for a car this old.
Frankly, I believe it's "like" normal cars, pull the starter, and test it at autozone, you're best bet, to save time. It's not expensive to replace, relatively, go for it.
Good times, hope this helps.
