Please be aware that some of these are OLDER PICTURES and don't truly represent the condition of the paint on the car.
The paint is currently peeling all over....primarily the clear coat and there is alot of fading. It will definitely need a repaint to get close to it's previous glory. And there are virtually no dents or any rust on the car. It's definitely worth the effort to bring this car to its potential. THE CURRENT PICTURES WILL CLEARLY BE OBVIOUS.
There is no rust or body damage on the car. It spent the majority of its life in DRY DRY New Mexico. All it needs is paint at this point.
I have owned this car for about 15 years and unfortunately didn't have the garage space for it and it didn't stay covered. But the interior is still very nice. There are cracks in the cash under the dashmat..standard for these cars. And the passenger seat belt latch isn't working. Other than that the interior is VERY NICE.
This was Mercedes Benz's most expensive car at the time and was built on the C107 chassis. Accordingly, very very limited production. Total production of the car was about 7000 with very few remaining, and fewer having these low miles..
The car runs strong with about 240 bhp and a 3 speed automatic transmission. Brand new brakes help it stop and the air conditioning works perfect with a brand new compressor. Heater works great too.
The interior is in excellent condition and the engine compartment looks good and it hasn't even been detailed. There are a few cracks in the dash..nothing major and easily repairable but with the dashmat they are not spreading.
Also, the passenger seatbelt receiver needs to be replaced as it doesn't grab the belt.
It also has beautiful chrome racing wheels by BBS. The tires at this point still hold air but they are dry cracked and need replacement.
The car is not for sale. This is strictly for enjoyment purposes. Thanks
