EXTERIOR

This classic Mercedes-Benz is finished in metallic Mercedes Blue Green. (colour code 877) and looks magnificent with a brilliant shine and deep gloss finish.   A sporting and unmistakable design with long clean lines this example is a real head turner.   Structurally sound with the only evidence of repair being a small section on the lower nearside front wing where a slight colour mismatch can be seen upon close inspection only.   The chrome bumpers and adjoining rubber trim are in beautiful factory fresh condition. aside from a small area of damage to the rubber on the rear offside corner.   The black hood is clean and free from rips or tears. as are the side and rear hood windows.   The original jack and warning triangle are still present.   A perfect example of beautiful design and remarkable engineering.  

 

INTERIOR

Large wide-opening doors give convenient access to a genuine four seat coupe with anatomically contoured front seats offering ultra comfort.   The spacious interior is tastefully upholstered in Mercedes black leather and fabric arrangement (interior code 071) with matching colour scheme carpets.   The seats are in excellent order with no discolouration or cracking to the leather.   The fabric to the drivers seat base is starting to wear thin.   Deep pile carpeting throughout has been protected by original fit rubber Mercedes-Benz over-mats.    The wood veneer is beautifully preserved. but there is a tiny crack on the dash top.   All the gauges. controls and electrics operate perfectly. as does the standard fit Blaupunkt Melbourne MR23 radio cassette.   A later remote central locking system with alarm and immobiliser has been fitted for added security and convenience.   A comfortable refined and ergonomically designed environment.    

 

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION

The six cylinder in-line engine with fuel injection. twin-overhead camshafts and transistorised ignition produces 185bhp and as a regularly maintained unit will continue to offer extraordinary reliability.   Gloriously smooth and powerful it is mated to the optional four-speed torque convertor transmission which is seamless in operation.   An altogether flawless and assuring drive.

 

WHEELS. TYRES & BRAKES

Optional light-alloy wheels are free from damage and are shod in matching 195/70 R14 tyres which retain excellent tread all round.   A perfect unused matching spare alloy wheel with brand new tyre is present.   Dual-circuit servo assisted brakes with discs to all four wheels.   The front discs are internally ventilated and provide excellent stopping power.   The parking brake has separate drums and shoes to hold the car firmly.

 

HISTORY FILE

This wonderful example has only had 8 former keepers. and it is clear from the condition of the car that the owners have cherished it.   The original maintenance booklet is present and boasts a full complement of service stamps.   A subsequent service booklet was required to continue the record and documents the last full service at 165. 50 miles.   The current mileage stands at 166. 50.   A further history file contains many previous MOT certificates and a huge assortment of invoices from both Mercedes-Benz main dealers and independent specialists.   All handbooks. radio guides and even the original Mercedes-Benz running in schedule accompany the immense and fastidious history file.

 

This vehicle will appeal to an enthusiast wanting an incredibly well preserved and useable example of a truly legendary driving machine. at a keen entry price.

 

HPI Clear. 12 Months MOT. Approved Used Car Check certificate.
