Up for sale is a vehicle out of my collection. I owned a fleet of W108's and one of my vehicles, which I restored to 100% perfection, was the highest priced sold W108 in history. My buyer, who's name I do not disclose, is a Royalty and we all know his name. I sold all my W108's and this is the last one. I only have one long wheel base left, which will be my next restoration project. The reason I mention everything is because I want my buyers to know that you are buying from someone who knows this vehicles, knows what it needs to have to have value. There are many vehicles on the market you can buy but are they worth the money you will spend to restore? Will they be worth anything after you put in thousands of dollars?
This particular car is the kind that is worth restoring and it is the car that will be worth money as a classic. There are two factors that make the car worth money. Number one, is the sunroof and the second is the fact that it is a floor shifter. It is very rare to catch them both on the same V8 car. Thats what makes this car valuable and rare. This is an awesome restoration material and you can be confident investing in it. As I mentioned, my vehicle sold at a price of a Mercedes 600 and it was a W108, 4.5, because it was a floor shifter and it had sunroof and it was fully restored.
The car has no oil leaks. It has fair paint and is very presentable. The interior is fine. Carpets are fair. Seats are fair. Door panels are fair. All glass is fair and so is chrome. Sunroof works perfectly. Car has no real rust. It has minimal surface rust in couple of areas, which is very common on a car this age and mostly this model. The undercarriage is perfectly fine. Inside the trunk is clean and was painted for a cleaner look. The vehicle drives very nice. I drove miles and miles in it. As you can tell the wires inside the enginecompartmentwere replaced. The car has a newer Interstate battery. If you are looking for a car to restore, this is it. If you were looking for a car to drive, this is it. it is a very presentable car. Does not need to be restored. Can be driven for years before you decide to restore it. Remember, that cars with options like this is always going to be worth money. Good luck with the purchase
All inspections are welcome. I much rather have the buyer inspect the vehicle than have them tell me I was hiding something, which I am not. As you can understand, I am looking for a safe sale and someone that understands that this is not a brand new C class. It is a classic vehicle and has flaws. It will until you restore it fully and probably even after that it will have flaws that only you will know. Wire transfers and checks only. Locals will pay cash or wires. Thank you
