1966 Mercedes-Benz 200-Series 230s
This car has been my baby for the last 6 years. The vehicle is in excellent condition,It has been fully restored. I am an MBCA member and I have brought this car to two club shows and it has won awards both times. The vehicle has 39,900 original documented miles. I have binders of document, ncluding the purchase and delivery from new, have every receipt and complete parts books during its complete restoration. I have all manuals and original keys. I even have all the shop manuals and repair manuals. No expense has been spare, have invested about 50k in this vehicle. I have added air conditioning. The vehicle is like a time capsule. I have added a sound system because the car was ordered radio delete. An amplifier and subwoofer are mounted in the trunk, nd sound deadening has been added through out.The front end has been completely renewed with all Mercedes OEM parts, nd so has the rear end. I have even removed the rear compensating spring on the rear end and added the pneumatic compensator like in the 300se. Needless to say I am a Mercedes-Benz fanatic, The car came stock with 13 inch wheels which I upgraded to OEM 14in wheels to improve handeling. Every component of this car has been gone over, ou name it it has been done. The vehicle was originally ordered in Rochester NY, icked up in Germany as part of the European delivery program, t spent its first month of driving in Austria and Germany on a family vacation. After the vacation it was shipped to Newark NJ , icked up by the owne, nd spent its life in Rochester NY. The original owner garage kept the car, nd kept detailed records. Including every gas fill up. The vehicle was used locally for many years , then parked in the garage, he house was sold about ten years ago with the car still in the garage, purchased it from the home buyer because of its low mileage and originality plus all the record keeping. I am on to new projects now and its time for someone else to enjoy this car. Both the rear and front ends where removed from the car disassembled and rebuilt with all new Mercedes parts, s well as the entire fuel delivery system, ines and fuel tank, all stainless steel exhaust system and all stainless steel front and rear bumpers,all new lighting,new hood star, nderhood pad,brake booster,brake resevoir the period correct wipers and arms and washer resevoir,complete tool kit, ront armrests installed,both carbs rebuilt,automatic transmission serviced, ll new subframe and engine mounts, hock, springs, ll bushings, ingpins, tc. also after almost three years of searching I found NOS rear tailight, they are installed also.
