"Un-renovated and in good used condition. 200,000 km since new. Delivered newly inspected"

Description

Elegant luxury model designed by the same man who designed the 300 SL and the Pagoda. It was inspired by the cars of the time in the USA, which resulted in Mercedes' only model with characteristic fins on the rear wings.

This car was sold new in Jönköping and was used until 1978 when it was put away in a garage for almost 15 years. When it was produced in the early nineties, it was serviced and the brakes were refurbished. The bodywork was unusually intact and the paintwork is good, with the exception of the front wings which had some rust spots around the headlights, which is why the wings were replaced with new ones and painted together with the lower right side of the car. Apart from this, the car has its original paint. It has never had any major rust damage and has been properly tectyl-treated since new. From the nineties until now it has been used by enthusiasts and has recently received a service and general overhaul. The car is nice to drive with a lively engine, good oil pressure and an easy-shifting gearbox. A steering wheel gear stick was on this model to enable a full sofa in the important US market.

Condition

  • Mechanical condition:

    Runs well in the engine and gearbox. Easy steering and good brakes. No vibrations. Delivered newly inspected.

  • Interior condition:

    Rare complete and original interior in red artificial leather. Nice door cards, dashboard and headliner. Also good mats, but some dry cracks are visible in the rubber mats.

  • Exterior condition:

    Good body without damage and mostly original paint. However, the original paintwork is somewhat dull. Some shade differences can be seen. There are some repairs and some surface rust on a threshold (picture). Nice chrome and glass. Even the rubber seals are ok. The car does not appear to have been traffic damaged or welded. All the gaps match and the body is straight. A solid feeling in the doors. At the time of the documentation, there was a sudden rain shower, and in some pictures, you can see white streaks on the paintwork, this is not damage but raindrops.

  • General condition:

    Very good unrestored used condition and relatively low mileage, it gives a good overall impression that can be further enhanced with a polish and upholstery valet. A little clean in the engine bay wouldn't hurt either.

Facts about the model

Daimler-Benz klassiska sexcylindriga Heckfloße W111 tillverkades mellan 1959 och 1968 som sedanmodell. Coupé och cabrioletmodellerna byggdes ända till 1971, dock med nedtonade fenor. Karossen som delades med fyrcylindriga 190 hade 145 millimeter längre nos för att rymma de raka 2,2 / 2,3-liters sexorna. Panoramarutor och fenor som varit högsta mode i USA på femtiotalet inspirerade designern Friedrich Geiger till denna vackra modell. Efterföljaren W108 presenterades redan 1965 men Heckfloße-modellen levde kvar bland annat som 230S – som instegsmodell i S-klassen fram till 1968. Friedrich Geiger är är mest känd för designen bakom några av MB-historiens vackraste bilar som 300 SL (Måsvingen), 230/250 SL Pagodan och 600 limousinen. Aktuell bil är i sista utförandet i W111 serien, och byggdes åren 1966 till 1968.
