1978 Mercedes-Benz 400-Series

I am the second owner of this well cared for friend. I refer to the car as a friend because I purchased the car around 1984 and paid $24K just what the first owner paid when he bought the car for his wife. The car had 7500 miles on it and has been in my possession since. It has always been stored in a garage or warehouse and when outside been covered with a custom cloth car cover to keep the sun and dust off the car. The car has been in my possession longer than my children. wife and pets. It has always had great care. The few repairs made were due to not driving the car on a regular basis. I try and start the car once a month when not in use as I tend to drive the car in the winter months here in s Florida with the top down. Rarely . o I drive the car without someone commenting on the car with numerous compliments. The exterior is silver there are about three small dime and quarter size dents on the car( I should have these removed by time auction ends. the paint is original except for a quarter panel and the rear deck lid where some ff. $&!! keyed the car years ago and I had it repainted. The clear coat is beginning to craze when you look closely. The car has never experienced any form of an accident. the interior is Matador red and is in extremely good condition. I suppose there is a degree of fade from original but unnoticeable. rugs great condition as is trunk. I removed the catalytic converter many years ago and the performance was much better. I have the cover for the cat converter. I also have most every part that was ever replaced when repairs were made -in a box. The original sun visors come with the car but need to be replaced along with the clips. I have yet to find replacements that match the red color. Other than what I have just mentioned the car is in original condition with everything working. New tires. new battery and AC changed over to r34. This color combination is the exact same one as Mercedes used on the cover of their sales brochure of this model and year. Yes I have the brochure. All receipts can go with the sale. A custom car cover is included. the hardtop and metal storage unit with wheels also included. hate to sell my friend of 30 years but I have too many cars and need to thin out the herd.
