I bought this two owner car out of California to be a weekend cruiser, and that’s exactly how it brought me joy these past 6 years. I chose this model because Mercedes built a variation of this body style for around 20 years, so parts are affordable and easy to find. Thankfully, it has lived up to the Mercedes reputation for being well built and reliable, allowing me to spend money on upgrades to the car vs making repairs.Anything I’ve done to the car is well documented and records will be provided. I loved that even if I might only drive it a couple times a month, it fired up perfectly the first time every time. The car’s over 40 years old and doesn’t even leak oil onto the garage floor. The only reason I am selling is I now have a daughter driving and don’t need to have 4 cars.

The car drives exactly like such a well maintained and serviced car should. Powerful V8 has real cruising speed on the highway. The 4-speed automatic transmission shifts smoothly. Comes with new tires on front and nearly new tires on rear, very nice Mercedes chromewheels,original owner manuals and keys, and custom floor mats.Comes with both HARD and SOFT tops. The soft convertible top (in chocolate brown) isin excellent shape as it was replaced in 2017. Interior is in great condition, including carpet, dash, seats, and door panels. Also comes with a custom car cover to keep the dust off, a very handy rack to hold the hard top in your garage when not in use, and the original hard top lift if you want to mount it on the garage ceiling to aid taking the hardtop on and off (otherwise it is a two person job). Shocks, brakes,radio, power antenna, and everything else on this carare all in great condition.You can literally GET IN AND DRIVE!

Upgrades I made to the car include: fold down rear seat with seat belts (kids can ride back there), wooden steering wheel and shift knob, Sony CD radio with Bluetooth, new speakers and amp, and ceramic paint coating over original paint. Always garaged. Chrome shines like a mirror. You’ll see in the pictures that the paint is flawless. Without a doubt, this is a classic Mercedes-Benz roadster with a factory V8 engine that would be a beautiful, reliable cruiser for any classic car enthusiast.
