The car's factory options include: 5.6 liter OHC V8 engine, automatic transmission with torque converter, supplemental restraint system, anti-theft alarm system with radio theft deterrent, power assisted steering, cruise control, tinted glass, electric window lifts, electrically heated rear window on hard top, fully independent suspension, power assisted four wheel disc brakes, anti-lock braking system, light alloy wheels, limited slip differential, leather upholstery, adjustable bucket seats and head restraints, front center folding arm rest, leather covered steering wheel and gear selector, 'Becker' radio/cassette with automatic antenna, Aerodynamic Halogen Head & Fog lamps and air conditioning with automatic climate control and central locking.
Always garaged and covered with no accidents and a clean CARFAX report with the original factory 'Cabernet Red Metallic' color paint in beautiful condition as is the 'Palomino' leather interior with its original leather dashboard and walnut wood veneer interior in very striking condition throughout (obviously always garaged from the sun and elements!) The car has its original 'German canvas' soft top and the car has it's original and also factory matching 'Cabernet Red Metallic' hard top. The car boasts all its original owners manuals and service booklets.
The car was purchased new by its original and only Malibu, southern California owner at 'Mission Viejo Imports', the Mercedes-Benz dealership of Mission Viejo, CA on 3/25/1988 and the car was initially serviced there. In later years it was serviced at 'Malibu Auto Care', of Malibu, CA where the car was recently serviced and where the car received a clean bill of health. The car drives exactly like such a well maintained and serviced Mercedes with only 96K original miles should and must be seen and driven to be truly appreciated! All the options are working as they should including the A/C.
Without a doubt, this is one of the finest classically beautiful roadster designs built by Mercedes-Benz, probably the last classically beautiful convertible series they built and now becoming more desirable and collectible than ever before - certainly you will look long and hard to find a finer head-turning example with only one southern California owner since new of this penultimate year model in this most striking and desirable of color combinations available anywhere else!
