This MB Coupe was delivered new in California.
The original blue plates are still on the car. The last owner had it for 10 years. unfortunately there is no further history but one thing I can tell. it were caring owners. The tacho reads only 79.000 miles. That is less than 3500Km per year!!

Body and paint:
The condition is amazing. The paint is beside two panel completely factory paint. The right front fender is repainted, and the lower part of the right rear fender is had a spotrepair.

The underside is completely cleaned and looks like it just came out of the factory. Only some suspension parts are showing that the actually have been used. nothing restored. The floors of the trunk are looking like new. still the original black paint.

The interior is also amazingly well preserved. No damage due the Californian sun. No dash cracks. perfect headliners, seats carpets etc.

The chrome is all original and has no pitting. Just perfect beside one little dent as big a 20ct coin.

Still the original wheels with the original painted hubcaps.

The engine runs smooth and starts right up. Oil, filters and sparks are replaced before delivery.
New exhaust and waterpump.

The automatic gearbox shifts well in every gear.
