The Mercedes W109 was a luxury-class model from Mercedes-Benz and from 1965 to 1972 in production and had consistently an air suspension that corresponded to the Mercedes 600. In August 1965 a new generation of the upper class was presented with the types 250 S, 250 SE and 300 SE, which was to succeed the tail fin types W111 and W112 (220 Sb, 220 SEb, 300 SE). All three models had in common a body designed by Paul Bracq, whose clear lines dispensed with fashionable accessories and whose timeless elegance still looks timeless today. The W108 / W109 series has disc brakes all around, an advanced detail compared to many other contemporary automobiles. The production of the overall very successful series ended in September 1972. As a successor acted the "S-Class" models of the series W116. The eight-cylinder 3.5 (and 4.5 liter, US version) have an electronic injection (Bosch D-Jetronic) and engine power of 147 and 143 kW. The 300 SEL 4.5 was built exclusively for export and took the engine of the 450 SE from the 116 series. Since it was no longer possible to comply with the emissions regulations in the USA with the 300 SEL 6.3, the new 4.5l engine from the 116 was still mounted in the 109er body in a quantity of 2,553 for two years. The 300 SEL 4.5 had after adjustment to the American fuel quality about the same performance as German 300 SEL 3.5, but much more torque. In addition, these vehicles already have the new 3-speed torque converter automatic transmission, which switches more comfortably and also a longer (1: 3.23) rear axles gearing was installed. So longer tours on the highway are a pleasure.
We bought this Mercedes 300 SEL 4.5 in Georgia USA and restored it over two years to a high-end vehicle on an excellent original basis. The entire technic was dismantled, inspected, overhauled and reassembled. This includes the engine, the transmission, the front and rear axles, power transmission, air suspension, shock absorption, steering and much more. The work was carried out by one of the best companies for Mercedes Restauration in Germany , AI Motors in Stutensee. In the process, the entire vehicle was inspected and all necessary work carried out and corresponding wear parts were with OE parts renewed, regardless of cost. The wood on the dashboard was repainted in the correct way ( Color , Thickness and finish ), the matching wood trim for the windscreen from an early 109 where retrofitted. Because of my likings, the whole American lighting was dismantled and exchanged for the much nicer and more elegant German version. The car has the full equipment including AC and sunroof, original great preserved leather, the original carpet and chrome. The underbody is similar to a year-old car. The body is accident - and 100% rustproof. It was outside stripped to bare metal, since the original paint was worn and again painted in the original color with Glasurit products to a very high quality. It got a rust proof treatment and a clear wax applied on the underside of the body. All seals, or all rubber parts on the vehicle has been renewed ( 100%), the handling corresponds to that of a new car. Every item works as it should incl. central look, dashboard lighting, clock, AC Heating. There is nothing more to do. 100% . Focus on the restauration was to preserve as much as possible from the original car and its originality. Now it presents with its original Chrome, Glass ( new OE Windshield window ) All Tools ,all Books, the original Brake shoes, all hardware, every hose clamp, sticker , Battery and surfaces of plating is as it left the factory. The Mercedes still has its US North Carolina Title, can be transferred to a German title as well. You will hardly find a better W109 on the market. If you have any question, please do not hesitate to contact me. A 12 month warranty is included. The car is located in Cologne Germany and ready for inspection and test drives. Shipping to every location in the world can be arranged.
