Car Summary:

I have my grey market euro 1983 Mercedes-Benz for sale. It was imported in from Germany to Washington state in 2001 and has been with that owner until he passed away last year. Since the car is originally from Germany, many of the knobs have German labels. The car retains its original paint all around but does have some paint splintering on the hood and a sun fade mark on the roof. Interior is Leather and not MB-Tex like US Models and is in very good condition for its age with no rips or tears. The car retains its original engine and transmission. Virtually rust free, very clean undercarriage, door jams and wheel arches. Tires have great tread all around. All glass except the windshield is original. This is a fully loaded (Please review the options list above in detail and use pictures as references) and rare car. Car runs and drives great and is in good condition considering its age. Just recently drove the car from Portland, OR to Seattle, WA and drove awesome! All power windows, sunroof, power seats and seat heaters work great.

Recent Maintenance:

Within the last month I have replaced the cars battery and had an oil change done. These receipts will be included with the car.

Car has also been recently detailed inside and out and does have some wax residue that can be seen on the front lip spoiler and rear valence.

For your convenience, I have attached the following photo and video links of the car to show the detail of the car as well as a driving video.

Items that need attention:

-The car does have some paint splintering on the hood which can be seen in the photos and video

-The car does smoke a little bit on cold start up but goes away when warmed up

-Radio is installed in the car but needs a proper wiring adapter in order to work

-Driver side rear seat recline motor is stuck (common issue on these W126 bodies)

-Blower motor does not work but from researching online they appear to be easily replaced without removing the dash

If you look up NADA values for these cars, they are going up in value and quickly becoming collectors cars. This is a great car for an enthusiast. The car is located is in Seattle, WA and I welcome local pickup but I am happy to assist buyers with shipping the car. This goes without saying but all sales are finals, car is being sold as is where is.

Serious buyers only, if you have no feedback, please message me first before bidding. $500 deposit due at auction ending and full payment due within 3 business days.


Goodluck and Happy Bidding!
