1966 Mercedes Benz 250 S Four Door Sedan Automatic. Not Running. ’66 MBZ AS IS

Vehicle is located in the United States. International bidders please consider transport is buyer's responsibility. Thank you.

Offered in this auction is a 1966 Mercedes Benz 250 S Four Door Sedan Automatic in classic Light Baby Blue. This vehicle is NOT PRESENTLY RUNNING. This ’66 MBZ is offered AS IS without warranty. This auction is a re-listing as we did not sell the car for its reserve price.

SERIOUS BIDDERS ONLY. There are many details about the condition of the car listed. This is a private sale and buyer’s remorse is not an option.

Photos are all of actual car: these photographs are not Photo-shopped or altered. Car looks very nice for its age but the fact that it has been sitting for several years means that the finish is not Super Shiny and New. Descriptions are as accurate as humanly possible. We thank you for your interest.

This car was purchased used in 1978 and driven daily until approximately 1986 when it was covered and parked inside enclosed garage. It was removed from storage in April 2013. It was recently examined by a mechanic who verified that the engine is not frozen. However, as it has not been driven since about 1987 or 1988, we assume buyer will want to perform major tune up if not total overhaul. Tires will hold air for transport but do not retain air for long.

Mileage: 159,292 original miles (replacement rebuilt engine has approximately 70,000 miles)

VIN: 108 012 12 005520


Registration: Non Operative (Non Op) and not street legal

Title: Clean; have Pink Slip and legal title. There are no liens.

Body Condition: Body is rust free and in good condition. Chrome is pitted in areas but appears solid overall. Paint is in fair to good condition for a vehicle of this age with original paint but paint does have substantial fading, some cracks and crazing, and a few chips and scratches. The paint, therefore, is not perfect, and photos show condition fairly. Photos include close-up view of paint. All of the weather-stripping is also original and is brittle in some places due to age with some cracking. Windshield has California NOX exempt sticker but car was subject to smog testing and passed all tests until parked and not driven. Driver side view mirror has crack. The antenna and hubcaps are missing. Left rear brake light lens is cracked.

Interior: Front bucket seats with rear bench seat. Originally this model had blue vinyl seats but these were replaced with brown (cordovan) leather. Significant wear on leather includes some cracks and rips in both back and front seat areas. One arm rest is from original blue vinyl as replacement was not included in the interior we purchased. Dash has been removed but is there for reinstallation. Instruments are all there and were working when car was placed in storage. Speedometer is not pictured but is in box in trunk of the car. Floor carpet is original and covered with brown carpet mats. Windows are crank style, not electric. Front seats are adjusted manually to several positions, and upper seats fully recline. Wood trim on windows and dash in fair to good condition.

Mechanical: 6 cylinder Automatic. This car was running when first parked. Has not been driven in many years, but the engine is free. Vehicle passed its last smog test before being placed on Non Op. Brakes and tires do not bind and car can be pushed. Needs complete overhaul, battery and tires. Please see photos of engine for better idea of mechanical condition.

When originally purchased, we did a major overhaul. The engine is not original to the car. The original engine had been replaced prior to our purchase. Both the engine and transmission were rebuilt.All records are included to assist in parts location. Regular maintenance was continued until stored. All maintenance records and registrations are included.

Auxiliary Electric Fan was added to avoid overheating with on/off switch on underside of dash within easy reach of driver.

► Auxiliary water tank was added to prevent overheating, creating closed water system (recycling)

Original Carburetors needed frequent rebuilding and service and were replaced with Dual Weber Carburetors, Type 32/36 DGAV 3B – 03B (with a JAM Engineering Inc. Model MBZ 6DS conversion). All original instructions and materials are included.
