1980 Mercedes-Benz 200-SeriesThis is one of the rarest versions of the classic Mercedes Benz W123 chassis. This was a European only spec car with the sportier 4 cylinder engine (same as the 190 sedan) with a 4 speed manual transmission and in the ultra rare CE or Coupe model. I have owned many rare Mercedes, ut until I purchased this car, had never seen one.
In my opinion, his is one of the best looking Mercedes built in the 1980's. It has clean classic lines with pillarless coupe style. This is made even better with the clean looking slim-line bumpers, lush headlights, nd the classic Bundt alloy wheels.
This example is actually an 84 model (ebay will not accept gray market VIN numbers and makes you list as a 1980) and was brought over to the USA by Cordel Foreign Motors. It was ordered along with another new Mercedes sedan by a very special customer. For years it was pampered and serviced by the owner at Cordel, nd then sold to 2 subsequent owners who have done the same. An extensive history folder comes with the car documenting its ownership and maintenence.
Cosmetically as you can see, t is in wonderful condition. The Classic German Silver paint still holds a great shine. The interior is nearly 100% original and still in excellent condition. Some custome touches include a wooden shift knob and custom mats by Cocomats.com.
Mechanically, t is in great shape having been well maintained and it shows. The engine runs very well with no smoke etc. The transmission and clutch are just as they should be with no bad noises or popping out of gear. It has been recently serviced and received a new factory Mercedes Fuel pump along with a host of small items to make sure it is ready to use.
If you are looking for one of the most stylish and well built Classic Mercedes for a reasonable price, his could very well be the car for you. While not perfect, t is a very well maintained and preserved specimin that is ready to use and show. It is rare for such a car to come along!
