"Well-kept Pagoda with a low mileage, basically untouched. Only the rims are none original but of a model that was popular at the end of the 1970's."

It has had an upstart and is a good runner. The same owner since 1973, and only in summertime use. The car is in a original pristine conditon on the inside and out. Equipped with hardtop and hood. Hood in some worn, but fine original condition, it seems to be the original item.

    Lovely overall original condition, only small stone chips and some scratches, good chromework. The well known old school Mercedes door sound is very present in all doors including bonnet and boot lid.
