1972 280SEL 3.5 - For Sale - Sydney

Hi All,

My father-in-law has a 1972 280SEL 3.5 sitting in front of his house that he doesn't want anymore.

The rego expired in 03/06/2011.
The car was still running then but hasn't been started since.

This is what I know about it:
* Rego Plate was JAC22K
* Vin 10805722010853
* Has a Yorkstar Motors Stock No plate on it of 8880
* All panels seem straight - no dints, some signs of rust
* Interior seems original - a couple of tears on the drivers seat - wood dash looks worse for wear

Anyway - not sure if anyone is interested...
If you want me to take a couple of pics and send them let me know.
Or if you want to go and have a look at it let me know.

I've got no idea what it is worth if anything.

Would make a good restoration project or as spare parts for someone restoring something similar.

Cheers,
Gart

the 22 in vin should be 12 , also a 72 is a 4.5 , 71 was a 3.5 . to see what you have , open the hood , look at the color of the injectors [ plastic ] blue for 4.5 , yellow for 3.5
