1968 Mercedes-Benz 200-Series

For Sale by Owner is an extremely rare, nrestored, xtremely low mileage totally original and unmolested 1968 Mercedes Benz 230S Heckflosse Sedan. This is the last year of the sought after Heckflosse or "Fintail" sedans. It is my understanding that Mercedes intended to end production of the Heckflosse sedans in 1967 but had a few frames and body panels left over and had a very limited production of 62 cars produced world-wide in 1968. This particular car was sold new by EuropeanMotorson Van Ness Avenue in San Francisco. Theoriginalowner took deliver of the car in Milan in September, 967. I have all the original invoices including the European Delivery Order, he dealer's invoice, he bill of sale from the Mercedes Factory data cards and stamps. This car has never left California, omes with its original black plates and current registration and is totally rust free. To the best of my knowledge and experts who have looked at it, ll the body panels are original. Please take a look at the pictures, hey speak forthemselves. This is a radio delete car, speed full synchro manual transmission on the column. All gauges work as they should including the clock and the cigarette lighter. The car cruises easily at 60 - 65 mph and stops very well. It is currently located in Laguna Beach California, s always garaged and needs nothing. I have driven it up Highway 1 to Santa Barbara a couple of times. It does not smoke or leak any fluids and idles like a new car, tarts on the first turn without fail. I do not have documentation on mileage but have been advised by experts that it is accurate. Tires are excellent, ave original jack, riginal seat belts in the back and he front. I believe the spare to beoriginal, llothertires are nearly new. I have a picture of the runk included with the original liner removed. Can be seen by appointment.
This car has never been restored, t is original, ll lenses are original, hrome is outstanding and Ibelievemy asking price accurately reflects the condition of this rare sedan. Cars are only new once and this is as close to an original Heckflosse that I have ever seen. There may be other out there, just haven't seen them. I have seen restored Heckflosse sedans in Monterey during car week with 6 figure asking prices. Although abeautifully restored, xpensive and stunning, prefer original unmolested well cared for cars.
