I used to collect antique classic Mercedes and this the last one I have. This one is a real gem.

There were only a very few of these cars made with a manual transmission.

MBtext seats are original, and in excellent shape: no indentures from sitting-weights, no tears no scratches, looks brand new. No discoloration of original blue MBtext. No torn stitching. Amazing for a car of this age.

Interior and liner in excellent condition.

No oil leaks, no water leaks.

NO CRACKS on the steering wheel or stick shift knob at all!!

One of the last Mercedes made by hand, the quality of this car is amazing, and you can feel it when you drive it.

Despite being a very heavy car, this car is extremely fast. Small body and very powerful engine.

Very well kept car.

Just serviced; new gas and air filter and oil filters.
