testament to build quality of W108

Walked out of the hardware store yesterday to find a '72' 280SE 6cyl sitting in the lot next to my '72' 280SEL 4.5. Had to wait for the owner to come out to talk to him.

Turns out, he purchased the car new in '72' and has been his daily driver ever since. he has all the Mercedes certified mileage badges on the grill including the 1,000,000 KM badge. He currently has 850,000 miles on the car....One engine rebuild and one trans rebuild. Paid $8,700 for it in 1972.

Tobacco brown with cognac MB TEX interior. Very little rust....no rips...looks great. I was so excited to talk to him, I forgot to take a photo but in a small town, I'm sure I'll see him again.
