i bought this car back in 2010 and it had 68,150 miles on it. that means in the last 4 years only 2,216 miles were added to it. it runs great, i just don’t use it that often. i am the 3rd owner of it. the original owner bought it in florida and it was moved here to pa, bought by the second and then by me.
as you can see in the pictures below, it’s not a flawless show car- although it is an all original mercedes. the car was stored in a garage it’s entire life and has no rust on it. it was recently inspected here in pa. the whole car was repainted in the original factory color. the paint job was done by the previous owners brother who is a professional car painter at a new car dealership. the only blemish on it is where it got dinged in a parking lot. (see picture) i have the touch up paint in the original color that you can take with you.
as far as the roof: i had the soft top replaced with a brand new top. the plastic on the back is clear and can be seen through. the hard top is currently residing in my basement. i took it off the day i got the car since i wanted to run it as a convertible all the time. it too was repainted along with the rest of the car and is flawless. i have both original roof tools too.
the car runs great as i mentioned. all miles are original. the air conditioning needs work, that is to say it doesn’t function. when i bought the car, i didn’t care about this since i wanted a convertible anyhow.
i have the original manual and first aid kit as well. i bought a new radio for it, so it has a cd player now. the antenna itself retracts, but not all the way. (see picture)
please keep in mind this is a 35 year old car. for instance, the weatherstripping is functional and good, but it isn’t going to look like it just rolled off the lot in miami in 1979. also, the armrest is loose and could be fixed or replaced fairly easily. the driver seat is very comfortable and shows the wear you might expect given the age. apparently there weren’t many passengers since that seat is in great shape. anyone can come and inspect the car but must do that before bidding. you can ask me for a picture of anything on the car and i’ll either email it to you or add it to the pictures on here.
i have the original manual, maintenance manual, emissions manual, and the manual for the new stereo.

Item location: Blairsville, Pennsylvania, United States
