Would you buy a car on eBay with four pictures and one paragraph of description? NO.
That is why at Classic Cars Online, our listings will go over and show every area of the vehicle that is up for auction. Body & Paint: The color of the paint is called "Smoked-Silver Metallic". (Mercedes paint code: 702) It is a great looking color for this type of car. This original paint is in excellent condition. It looks great with a deep shine with no fading, checking, cracking or orange peel. There are no scratches, dings or dents. Looking down the sides of the vehicle, you can see that the car's body is very straight and true. There are no signs of any rust or other problems. Check out the photos of the bottom of the doors. This body is very clean and solid.
Soft Top & Removable Hardtop: The black convertible soft top is in excellent condition. It is believed to be still original with the Mercedes logo molded into the plastic windows. There are no rips, holes or marks on the top. The plastic rear windows are also in nice condition with no major yellowing or fogging. The "Smoked-Silver Metallic" removable hardtop is also in excellent condition. (Sorry, we forgot to take the photos of the hardtop which was in storage.) The headliner on the hardtop is clean and looks great. When not on the vehicle, the hardtop is stored in a fitted bag/cover and kept on a rolling vertical rack. This storage rack and hardtop cover will go along with the sale of the vehicle.
Chrome & Trim: The chrome bumpers are in excellent condition. The rest of the chrome, stainless and rubber trim pieces are all also in great condition. The rubber bumper pieces are great and aren't cracked, split, or faded. The headlight bezels and front grille look great without any signs of road rash or stone nicks. The vehicle is equipped with the more desirable and better looking "Euro" style headlights. The vehicle is also fitted with four stainless steel wheel lip moldings which gives the car a great look.
Interior: The vehicle is equipped with dark burgundy leather interior. (Mercedes code: 277) This original interior is in excellent condition. The only wear we found was on the edge of the driver's seat on the bolster area where the dark burgundy dry has been lightly worn away. (See photo #43) This area can be easily repaired by just re-dying that small edge of the leather bolster. The rest of the interior is very clean and in great shape. The dash looks good without any cracks or fading. All of the lights, gauges, wipers, instrument panel components, and other electrical items are all in working order. The air conditioning works and is blowing cold. The factory radio is also working along with the power antenna.
Engine Compartment: Under the hood sits the original aluminum 3.8 liter 8 cylinder power plant. These engine are considered to be bulletproof. The engine is bolted to a 4 speed automatic transmission. The engine compartment is very clean and still looks factory stock. The vehicle starts, runs, and sounds great with no known problems. The owner always has kept up with the correct maintenance and changing of the filters/fluids. Remember, this vehicle only has 38,000 miles on it.
Trunk Compartment: The trunk compartment is original looking and is in great condition with all the original items. The red trunk liner and carpeted mat are very nice without any stains or wear. It has a spare tire that is mounted to the correct Mercedes wheel. The jack and jacking tools are all in their correct places. The Mercedes tools kit in the original cloth pouch is also there. The battery is installed behind the panel in the trunk as well.
Glass: All of the tinted glass pieces are original. There are no cracks, chips or scratches. Both power windows are all working without any problems.
Wheels & Tires: The vehicle has a set of chrome plated Mercedes Benz wheels installed. These upgraded chrome wheels are a nice touch in making this vehicle look great. They are in excellent condition without any scratches or scrapes. Mounted on these 14" chrome wheels are Michelin RoadHandler Sport tires, size 205/70R14.(100,000 tread warranty). All of the tires are in great condition with plenty of thread. The vehicle drives straight and doesn't pull, shake or vibrate.
Frame & Undercarriage: The frame and undercarriage are in excellent condition with no noticeable rust. With only 38,000 miles, I'm sure this vehicle hasn't seen that much of any harsh weather.
Nine times out of ten, people selling a car would not talk about or take any photos of the underside.
The undercarriage tells you a lot about the car, that is why there are a few pictures of the underside.

Please read all of the terms before bidding.Our goal at Classic Cars Online, LLC. is to broker positive transactions between buyers and owners. We help with listing and presenting vehicles on eBay for the owners. We are not in possession and we have not inspected this vehicle. The owner provides us the information and photos for the eBay auction and has stated the representations are true to the best of his/her knowledge.
We also have a "Risk Free" 7 day inspection period AFTER the auction for the winner bidder.
(See below for details.) 1) The owner provides and is responsible for any and all representations within this auction and not Classic Cars Online, LLC. The owner states that the presentations are honest and accurate to the best of his/her knowledge and assumes all legal responsibilities for the vehicle and representations. 2) At the conclusion of the auction and upon reception of a Five percent (5%) deposit, Classic Cars Online, LLC. will place the winning bidder in touch with the owner to arrange for inspection or transportation. Classic Cars Online will accept the deposit on behalf of the owner. This deposit is due within 3 days of auction closing. The deposit can be paid with a Certified Bank Check. 3) An Inspection of the vehicle is Highly Recommended and must be done within 7 days of auction closing. The remaining balance, is due to the owner at inspection/acceptance. *If inspection is not completed within 7 days, or buyer waves his choice to inspect the vehicle, the deposit is nonrefundable and the deal is finalized. The inspection can be done by the buyer personally or a third party inspector that the buyer hires. 4) Full payment is due within 7 days of auction closing. You are not purchasing a new car that is claimed to be flawless. Instead, you are purchasing a vehicle that is old and expected to have normal wear and tear from age. The vehicle is sold "as is" where is without any warranty implied or expressed. All sales are final once inspected or paid in full. 5) If the vehicle was found to be materially misrepresented at the inspection, your deposit is refundable and you are not liable for the purchase but this must be determined within the allotted seven (7) day inspection period. Regardless of our commitment to describe vehicles in as much detail as possible there will be imperfections. Failing to mention for example an item such as a small paint imperfection, a minor non-safety related item such as a switch etc, does not constitute refusal of the vehicle by the buyer. We require you to put in writing via email or fax the material misrepresentations in order to receive a refund of your deposit. Taking a few photos of the misrepresented area for us to see, will help point out and confirm your concerns. "Changed my Mind" is not a valid excuse for your deposit to be refunded. 6) Bidding on this auction demonstrates your acceptance to indemnify and hold harmless Classic Cars Online, LLC. from any liability resulting from this transaction, including any reasonable attorney fees. 7) PLEASE DO NOT bid unless you have full intentions of purchasing at your bid price. Your bid is a legally binding contract as eBay clearly states. We reserve the right to end the auction early. We also reserve the right to verify any or all bids to ensure excellent auction integrity. Please do not ask the sellers reserve price as we will not disclose this information. 8) WE DO NOT accept bid retractions. If you bid and retract you will be added to our blocked bidder list and future bids will NOT be accepted. eBay allows for you to triple check your bid before finally entering the bid. Our integrity is impeccable as our feedback shows and we demand the same from our bidders. 9) Bidder/Buyer is responsible for all the shipping costs, insurance, title work, and must be 18 years of age or older. Remember, whether you are buying a car/truck from eBay, Hemmings or Collector Car Trader, you will inevitably want to go and inspect the vehicle. Our system is better than most as you can actually see several photos of the vehicle and enjoy a much more lengthy description, and then have a chance to inspect the vehicle after the auction. ss
