This is the one of the sexiest coupes you will ever see on the road.I have been collecting these specific cars for almost a decade and am selling off a car collection of some pretty awesome motorcars.
You may never see a car like this again. It's a rare color combo with these wheels and I am VERY sorry to see it go.
In the past I have received a feedback rating of 100% and I take pride in knowing that I am making automotive dreams come true.I will work with you if you need time toorganize financing just ask.

I do reserve the right to remove the auction at any time for any reason. Remember Ebay prohibits the removal of an auction within 24 hours of its completion so if you contact me with cash offers please do not wait until the last minute.
This car is going up in value every year so chances are you will be able to sell it for more than you bought it for provided you care for it.
*7502 total of this car where made and who knows how many have survived especially in this condition. This is a RARE red and in my opinion my favourite!
Ok that all being said... I'll try to include all the info I can:
This is a 1 Owner vehicle with excellent CarFax History - this car came from San Diego and was bought new by the father who now is too old to drive and given to his son.The son and I had mutual friends in the entertainment business.Complete all point inspection - fluids, oils and filters checked and/or replacedMaintenance done at regular intervals with no expense sparedReceipts and logs of all upkeep done over the years including insurance documentsOriginal Mercedes glove compartment owners manual and maintenance booksEnvelope of service records over the yearsGaraged and babied - I have never smoked or eaten in this car. This is a SPECIAL car.Paint looks pristine - only one or two little paint nicks or imperfections and a scratch or two nothing bigThe old man lost the Manufacturing / VIN plate that came with the car but they called me to say they found it but then lost it again!The car has a log book. A hand written note book of service dating back to the nineties plus the regular glove compartment books.Clear California titleRegistration to Dec 2016 - these cars never need to be smogged btw they are smog exemptInsurance is unbelievably cheap with collector car insurance, I pay $280 for full coverage a year! If you are buying this car you should look into it.
Bumpers show no chrome wear or scuffingBrakes in excellent conditionParking brake also excellentRubber parts all around look superb and subtle with no signs of age whatsoeverSeals are factory plump and doors shut like a vacuum - clunk... that Mercedes engineering air pocket thump when the door shutsWindow rubber seals are excellent with windows shutting as they should not letting air or water enter the cabinGrill as new with inserts and chrome showing zero age

Spare tire wheel is an original chrome wheel that came with the car with a brand new Falcon tire.I found an almost perfect set of aluminum (not chromed) billet Bundt wheels for this car.The chrome wheels are going for about $400 each now but these are the billet ones and are impossible to find.Billets go for $2400 for the set in this condition plus $$$ for the chrome caps which were also hard to find plus $400 for the 20 chrome Mercedes lugs. Plus new tires.Tires with approximately 99% plus age left 195/70R/14 Falcons with the nipples still on themTools for tire removal intactFirst Aid kit intact and never openedFirst Aid kit cover perfectAll emblems in tip top conditionHood ornament showing almost no age at all... chrome looks nice
