1971 Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL 6.3
Exterior: Grey Blue Poly (906 G)
Interior: Black leather
Originally from California, this Mercedes 6.3 is in exquisite condition inside and out. Fully detailed engine bay with correct coatings and decals, correct original color and completely sorted, ready to drive across the country.
Like any responsible 6.3 owner, the owner of this car has many more tens of thousands of dollars ‘in it’ than he can ever expect to get out!
