This beautiful 1972 Mercedes 280SEL (Long Wheelbase) lets you cruise in comfort, style, and class! PERFECT for weddings and Black Tie events.

The car has been mechanically and aesthetically restored over several years. Features include new black leather interior, factory Air Conditioning, Retrosound Bluetooth Audio, and ACCUAIR self-leveling Air Suspension (Pictures seen on "Low" setting, vehicle drives in "Standard" setting).

Plenty of power and space for a day trip, or perfect for getting VIP treatment at the Valet for a date night!


DRIVING RENTAL: Includes a 15 mile driving allowance to cover arrival/departure from a venue (and pictures). Additional mileage available at extra fee. Please avoid extended freeway use, as the vehicle is 50 years old and lacks modern safety equipment.

EVENT RENTAL: Just need great pictures in an iconic vehicle without the drive? This is for you! Great for historic events.

CHAUFFEURED RENTAL: Take advantage of this long-wheelbase 'limo,' and be chauffeured around in style. Perfect for your wedding or event. Includes 3 hours of use, route approval required.

Cancellation: Full refund up to 24 hours before event. After that, full rate is required. Note that cancellation will occur in the event of inclement weather (vehicle cannot get wet). In that case, I will communicate with you as early as possible.
