This classic Mercedes Benz is in sound mechanical condition, with a strong well running engine and a smooth shifting transmission. Beautiful set of Mercedes Benz 16-inch EVO wheels and a full spoiler package including the rare Euro rear window spoiler and modified front lights and grille. It does however, need restoration work, rust repair, paint and interior cosmetics. It is currently running and can be driven as needed. Car was restored in 2009, it provided good service for 10 years and is well deserving of a second restoration.
