Description:

1979 Mercedes-Benz 400-Series

THIS IS THE ORIGINAL FLAGSHIP FROM MERCEDES. IT FEELS LIKE IT DRIVES ON RAILS AND IS SO QUIET EVEN AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS YOU FEEL AS THOUGH YOUR IN A SAILPLANE. THIS CAR HAS GRACED THE FRONT COVER OF MERCEDES ENTHUSIAST FOR YEARS CONTINUALLY UPPING IT'S VALUE. IT HAS BEEN KNOWN TO GO WELL OVER 400,000 MILES WITH GOOD MAINTENANCE. THIS CAR IS FORMERLY OWNED BY A CELEBRITY COUPLE BEING AN EMMY AWARD WINNER AND OSCAR NOMINEE WHICH I HAVE THE DOCUMENTATION. IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN GARAGED AND HAS BEEN IN STORAGE/NOT DRIVEN FOR OVER 11 YEARS. IT HAS BEEN STARTED UP AND BACKED IN/OUT OF GARAGE OCCASIONALLY FOR WHEEL ROTATION AND ENGINE LUBRICATION HOWEVER, THE BATTERY NO LONGER CHARGES AS OF LAST YEAR. SINCE THIS CAR IS NOT REGISTERED TO DRIVE AT THIS TIME, IT WILL HAVE TO BE PICKED UP. ON THE DOWNSIDE, THE WIPER BLADES ARE DISCONNECTED BUT STORED. THE WINDSCREEN WEATHER STRIP IS CRACKED BUT DOES NOT LEAK AT ALL. THE BUMPER SHOCKS NEED REPLACEMENT BUT THE BUMPERS DON'T MOVE UNLESS FORCED.
THE TRUNK FABRIC HAS BEEN OUT BUT STORED. THE AC BLEW COLD WHEN LAST DRIVEN BUT THAT WAS 11 YRS AGO AND MAY NEED SERVICE.
THE PLUS SIDE, THIS CAR DOESN'T GET LOOKS. IT GETS STARES!! AND LOTS AND LOTS OF PICS WHEN PARKED, IT IS A TRUE COLLECTOR CAR NEEDING MUCH LESS COST TO MAINTAIN THAN THE 6.9. I HAVE A REPLACEMENT ANTENNA, BLAUPUNKT CD TUNER, MOTOROLA MOBILE PHONE WITH ANTENNA, REPLACEMENT CENTER ARM, REAR HEADRESTS AND MOUNTING BRACKETS. WINNING BIDDER WILL GET MANY SURPRISES NOT LISTED HERE. SEE YOU TUBE VIDEOS FOR CRASH TESTS. GOOD LUCK.
