"Drive it as it is; after all, it's nearly a 250,000-kilometer car that might just be allowed to remain a moderately patinated and usable classic coupe."

"Drive it as it is; after all, it's nearly a 250,000-kilometer car that might just be allowed to remain a moderately patinated and usable classic coupe."


The car was first registered in February 1981 in Germany and was imported to Sweden in May 2000. According to information, the previous owner, who bought it as early as 2003, used the car as a winter enthusiast vehicle for a few years, and he also had the rear fender edges rust-repaired. In the instruction manual, there are handwritten notes about service from 2003 and at just over 200 000 kilometers. During the inspection in 2013, the car had a registered mileage of 225 950 kilometers, indicating that it has covered the majority of those miles in its home country since new. Today, the odometer reads 245 690 kilometers, and it has been used sparingly in recent years. The current owner purchased it in 2019 and has covered just under 10 000 kilometers in over 4 years.

  • Mechanical condition:

    The nice straight-six engine with dual overhead camshafts feels smooth and the transmission shifts nicely. The chassis feels as solid as typical for a Mercedes, complemented by its characteristic steering.

  • Interior condition:

    Nice upholstery, door panels, roof, and good floor mats. The sunroof closes without any issues. The wood veneer has some cracking around the center console, and the trunk lacks a carpet/mat.

  • Exterior condition:

    Partially repainted. Some signs of rust at the bottom edges of the fenders and at the edges, as well as a bit on the sills. Original baroque rims with decent budget-type tires. A period-correct wind deflector for the sunroof is included.

  • General condition:

    A well-worn coupé with just the right amount of enthusiast charm as it is. Use it as a stylish summer driver, for example. Just like they do in Southern California year-round; driving their vintage cars in a patinated condition and being effortlessly cool. Some don't even know they are. That's how this car can be used.

Auction information

General information about the condition of the vehicles .
  • At this auction, many vehicles have been included in car collections and have been stored (mothballed) for a long time. For this reason, they are described from a collector's perspective and may need technical reviews and maintenance service - oil, battery replacement, new tires, brake review, etc. - before they can be used. .
  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends. When you bid at the end of the auction period - and also if you have made an earlier bid - we therefore ask you to read the descriptions carefully, in case something has been changed due to new information.
Important to know before placing your bids!
  • Once you have called in an item and the reservation price is reached we want you to deposit the entire purchase amount into our client funds account before retrieval can take place.
  • When you need to retrieve a called in object we want you to examine it carefully. If you consider that the item does not match our description you do not need to complete the purchase. In this case the deposited purchase sum and the entry fee are refunded.
  • If you do not examine the item on the spot the call charge will be debited, but you do not have to complete the deal.
  • If you make the entire purchase exclusively at a distance you have 14 days to cancel, but must return the item at your own expense.
  • Your shipping costs and other costs are not reimbursed when the right of withdrawal is exercised. Swedish court applies.
