It was acquired and underwent a thorough a full service and inspection by a Mercedes-Benz mechanic. The car is in very solid order and looks to be very much undisturbed. A top quality repaint was done a number of years ago and is very presentable. The brightwork appears to be original and shows extremely well. The leather upholstery is believed to be original and looks spectacular. Canvas top looks like new, but has certainly been replaced. Runs and drives like it should. Mercedes-Benz convertibles of this era are wonderful cars. They are characterized by their exemplary build quality. Their independent suspensions give them wonderful road manners, and fuel injection gives them great drivability. This hand-built Mercedes is surely a great car for a collection or as a wonderful driver for the enthusiast.
