Description

The car, a 1971 model, was registered in Sweden in 1974, and it's likely that it was imported from Germany. Over its history, it has had a total of 11 owners. The current owner acquired it in 2004 when the car needed extensive rust repairs and a renovation. At that time, the owner's goal was to create a nice summer car for family enjoyment rather than preserving it as a top-class original.
The bodywork underwent repairs, rust issues were addressed, and the car was repainted in red, departing from its original blue color. A mechanical overhaul was also performed, and the car was put back on the road. Later on, the engine was replaced with a Mercedes 230 motor that had covered 150,000 kilometers. Additionally, a 5-speed manual gearbox and servo steering were added to make it more family-friendly.
The interior received upgrades as well, including better old seats, side panels, and door cards. Throughout its life, the car has been well-maintained, serving as a cherished summer car and even being used for special occasions like weddings and student events.

Condition

  • Mechanical condition:

    This car has been well-maintained, with recent fluid changes and new front brake calipers. It features a modern stereo system with a bass speaker. Under the hood, the engine bay is clean with many new parts, and it rides on modern alloy wheels with good tires.

  • Interior condition:

    The interior of the car is clean and well-maintained, featuring white vinyl seats in good condition, albeit with a few spots of wear in certain areas. The door cards are in good shape, and the headliner is intact with a few marks and a small repair in the rear, as seen in the picture.
    However, the carpet in the front is quite worn and damaged. On the dashboard, there are a few small cracks on the top panel and some varnish has cracked on the wooden panels. The instrumentation is complete and in working order, and the car is equipped with a functioning Webasto electric sunroof. It also features a wooden steering wheel and gear knob.

  • Exterior condition:

    The previous renovation has held up well, and the bodywork is straight with no major rust concerns. While the paintwork remains vibrant, there are some small paint cracks near the lower door and front wing joint, a small blister on the front bonnet's edges, and a few minor touch-ups around the wings and boot lid. The chrome is generally clean and shiny, except for a small hole in the left rear bumper. The underbody is tidy, with signs of older repair work beneath the driver's side.

  • General condition:

    This car is in good running condition and presents itself nicely. The noted cosmetic issues are not urgent and can be addressed gradually over time. It's an ideal choice for someone seeking a reliable classic Mercedes to enjoy as it is.
