Fully documented, three owner 1966 Mercedes-Benz 250S (W108 chassis). Gorgeous interior looks as if it is a five year old vehicle - not 50 years old! The Red Tex seats and door panels are excellent and stunning. Headliner is very nice. Carpeting is showing wear on the floor mats. This 250S has been off the road and has not been run since 2006. I was told that it “drove when parked” but the engine does not turn after 10 years of sitting. There is some rust but nothing over the top. Floors, chassis, doors, trunk floor, trunk extensions and wheel wells are solid. Left front rocker panel, lower section of the front fenders behind the wheels and the lower portion of the front lower cross support panel need repair (see photos). Overall chrome is very nice. Bumpers are very nice and straight. Original issued Euro plate.
