    Very nice Mercedes Benz. About that axle boot, you are better off taking the whole differential, axel unit out of the car since this is a 50+ year old car and check all the pivot bushings and other wearing parts there. And replace the torn boots with the proper full style boots on the bench.

    1971 3.5's are very expensive. the 4.5 is cheap. I wonder if they made so many of the 4.5's that made them so cheap. If so, it is the 4.5's that are really worth the money. Great video. More on this 4.5 would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    The Mercedes is awesome. No doubt about that. But the Cadillac brings back memories of my teenage years when I was so impressed by their level of luxury compared to even a new, at the time, W126 (1983).
    However, apart from the placement of the emblems, there is something else missing too, that should be on there, even if it wasn't before. Pinstriping. White (oem style) pinstriping running the length of the car would make it look perfect.

    The days of that posh Caddy are gone because auto makers focus more on packing a car with technology than luxury. Even an actual luxury car isn’t as luxurious as it should be today. It wasn’t long ago that Apple Car Play was considered a luxury feature. Times have changed.

    Proper Euro spec bumpers. When my dad visited Mannheim for work, a US Army guy stationed there offered him $1000 for the set on his (back then) mint '74. Cash in hand, spanners out, right there in the parking lot. When I saw the US spec bumpers, I understood.

    That rear Item is a Boge Hydromat self energizing levelling system. Had this on my 1968 280S.
    Many had it swapped for a spring. If I recall, the boge was a factory unit.
    The spring is not good, as it makes the rear sit too high when lightly loaded.
    Keep it or get a renovated unit if it fails.

    The wizard was talking about the oil filter on the new Corvette engine. But they where cranking
    it over the other day. So the wizard is definitely worried he damaged this new engine. He probably did if they cranked it with nearly no oil.

    Find an extra fuel pump. When you need it, they just won't be available.
    I found the same car, but the condition was a little less than your car. It was about $4500, and the guy had it for sale for about 18 months. I saw the car when he was taking it to storage and by then he didn't want to sell.

I came across an old mercedes w123 diesel on iseecars, and its also listed on ebay for a very cheap price, however, I sadly and very upsettingly, do not have the funds to save this amazing car. Could you Please save this old mercedes diesel and help give it a second chance in life? let me know and i will find a link to click or an item number for it on ebay, let me know if you can possibly save it.

    This 280 SE is kind of Aristocrat car back in the days. All Big Leaders had one, members of Royal families around middle east and South to South-East Asia had one.
    However for current times I would say the color may have put off many potential buyer.
    There was one video on it from Jay Leno's Garage too and that car had much better color.

    My friend's mother bought a 1973 280SEL 4.5 in 1973 which was a way more popular model. She like the classic style better than the 450 SEL that replaced it. The seats were like sitting on padded Park benches, he side that they are orthopedicly designed I said bullshit. It was well built but far from luxurious for an $18,000 car which was a lot of money back in the day.

    Come for the narration on the 280, stay for the endorsement of manscaping accoutrements! That was a bonus. Okay you know they're not "quarter windows", they're "ventipanes." For me the only problem with the Mercedes was the color. Now I'm kind of interested in these Mercedes cars. I was really concerned about the mismatched tires on the Cadillac but it was reassuring to learn that you will get a new set. Try Hankook for a nice set of white sidewalls. By the way 1974 smells like Jovan Musk for Men. I should know; I was there.

    That Mercedes was made for the Car Wizard. It's well engineered, well built and well maintained. And now that Hoovie has his Caddy back, it's also redundant to his collection. I predict that, once it's finished, an offer will be made and accepted.
