Positively Byzantine – 1973 Mercedes 450 SE

December 29, 2015

Mercedes sedans of the 1960s and 1970s seem to be true automotive bargains – fully depreciated but beautifully built, and sure, while service parts cost more than for a similarly priced American luxury car, every car enthusiast should experience one at least once. And if you want that rumbly V8 noise, a Mercedes with the M117 will do that too, and scoot you to 60 in a respectable 8.5 seconds, using its copious power and torque to get you there. Mercedes enthusiasts in North America will also know the W116 only came with the tidier, smaller world-market bumpers in 1972 and 1973, so check out this 1973 Mercedes 450 SE for sale for $3500 in Lynnwood, WA.
