Pandora is the one of the sexiest coupes you will ever see on the road and for sale at a great price.I have been collecting these specific cars for almost a decade and am selling off a car collection (see my other listings).
You may never see a car like this again. Paint code 501 which is a nice bright metallic red! It's an extremely rare color combo... most of the red coupes are a burgundy color.
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.
The car is a one owner vehicle with service records. As a collector I never trust a car sale (on Ebay especially) that has no service records to substantiate the true miles and these cars are especially prone to odometer roll back because OM617 diesels are such an amazing design and the engines show very little age and have been known as the million mile engine. I have the prior owners phone number too.
The price on the car is based on the rarity, condition, color, miles, wheels and service records.

I do reserve the right to remove the auction at any time for any reason. Most of my cars have sold with one on one negotiations outside of Ebay - so I encourage you to call me!
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 favorite! Hands down. This is my last concourse coupe for sale.
Ok that all being said... I'll try to include all the info I can:
This is a 1 Owner vehicle with excellent CarFax HistoryAutoCheck has no records because the car has NO accidents NO Transfer of Title and NO smog records as these cars are California smog exemptPandora came from San Diego and was bought new by the father who is too old now to drive and then given to his son.The son and I have mutual friends in the entertainment business.Complete all point inspection - fluids, oils and filters checked and/or replacedMaintenance done at regular intervalsReceipts 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 years - if you want to send you pics of these just ask.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 2016Garaged and babied with a"Pandora"embroidered custom California Car Cover.Paint looks pristine - one or two little paint nicks or imperfections
Insurance 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.

Spare tire wheel is an original chrome wheel that came with the car with a brand new 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.I have about $3000 alone just in the billet wheels, silver caps, matching Mercedes lugs and 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
