Engine & Transmission: The car was completely gone through by local shop here in Portland Oregon (503) 236-1737. The mechanics on this car are very well sorted. The car shifts very smooth and the engine runs strong (see video). The car is responsive and nimble and enjoys long-distance cruising. The underside of this car is extremely dry and shows no signs of leaks anywhere (see photos).This is a great example that is ready to drive and enjoy.

Body: This car is extremely solid. The body is in very good condition and all panels are straight with excellent gaps.All glass is in great shape. The paint presents well and shows the great lines of the car but does have a few areas that are not perfect. The front of the car has some rock chips and on the hood behind the fog lights there is some corrosion (see photos). The trunk area is nice and is the only other spot that had corrosion and was repaired (see photos). Some of the rubber gaskets have become hard with age and work properly but if the car was to win a show they would need to be replaced. The spare tire compartments are great, It comes with a large binder of documentation. The underside is untampered (see photos) and free of any rust. I took detailed photos to show the solid condition under this car. The car is in solid condition and a great daily driver.

Interior: The beautiful leather interior is in very nice condition, the original level of quality is still very apparent on this example. All the wood in this car is nice as you cruise down the road (see photos). The seats have been re-upholstered and show no signs of wear. The door skins are very nice as well as the armrests. The chrome bits in the interior are great. The radio is the correct original as it should. The carpets are new. This cars interior is in great shape and a big part of enjoying driving it..

Summary: This is asolid unmolested example of a classic Mercedes-Benz. These extremely comfortable tourers are considered highly usable classics continuing a tradition of handcrafted quality and superior engineering. This example is perfect for cruising and is a solid survivor that has been mechanically restored and still hold is original patina.
