this is one of the best looking and maintained versions of the classic mercedes benz w123 chassis that i have ever seen. it was a absolute top-spec car that was special ordered with rare options and and even rarer color combination. i have owned many rare mercedes, but until i purchased this car, i had never seen one like this.
in my opinion, this is one of the best looking mercedes built in the 1970's & 1980's. it has clean classic lines with pillarless coupe style. this is made even better with the clean euro flush headlights, and the classic mercedes hubcaps and steel wheels. in the late 1970's, the diesel mercedes were the car everyone wanted. fuel efficient, well built, stylish. a true jet-setter's car worthy of a twa executive.
this example is a one owner car. the owner was head of maintnence for twa and that attention to detail really shows in this car. this rare car has been kept in top shape for 37 years due to through maintenence. the original owner purchased the car for his wife and took advantage of the european delivery option. they picked the car up at the factory and took the car on a european vacation before shipping it back to thousand oaks ca. the records are meticulous on this car from a hand written log of all oil changes, maintenence, and exterior waxes to momentos such as european maps and hotel note pads from their trip.
happy bidding!

Item location: Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, United States
