"Dr Max Lovejoy" (the cars name)

Click below for picture collage.  

Dr Lovejoy is the most beautiful classic Mercedes sedan I have ever seen. In as new condition.

Bright metallic silver with a black interior. It's an extremely gorgeous color combo. Pics don't do the car justice.

The car is a one owner vehicle with service records. Documented freeway miles. Used as a commuter from Los Angeles to Las Vegas vacation home.  

The price on the car is based on the rarity. condition. color. miles. original wheels. service records and Nada and Hagerty valuation guide. You will not see one as clean as this. It doesn't get any better. First year of production built in nov 1980 and rolled out of the factory in Germany as a special order to be shipped to California. It is a California car with no rust. in fact the car has only seen rain only a few times in its entire life!

I reserve the right to remove the auction at any time for any reason. I strongly urge interested parties to contact me as it seems as this is the best way to get the car. Please remember Ebay prohibits the removal of an auction within 24 hours of its completion so if you contact me with cash offers please do not wait until the last minute. This car is going up in value every year.  This is an extremely rare car. I would not be surprised at all if the "buy it now" option is applied to this auction as the car is very fairly priced.
