Description

This is a VERY RARE 3 seater with 4 speed manual transmission. According to Mercedes they built 600 of these. It is a "grey market" car, was built for sale in Germany and then brought to USA. The speedometer was replaced with an MPH model.
It was designed to burn 98 octane (racing fuel) and is fuel injected. This thing is really fast and with the manual transmission is quite the toy!!
Body has been completely refinished with the original Cream paint. Interior is original but nearly intact! It has slight wear on the armrests, and is missing 1 small piece of trim.
Comes with original hard top (not refinished)
It has the original Blaupunk radio.
I have owned it for more than 20 years, bought it from my Dad, who bought it from his best friend. The premier Mercedes mechanic in Denver has gone over it and repaired all he could find except for a couple of minor issues listed above. I drive it less than 200 miles per year.
The engine has been replaced with a (larger) 280 engine (so I am told). Has had stereo speakers installed in kick panels. Mufflers have been replaced. Seat belts installed.
Original parts manual.
It has had an very high end alarm installed, with motion sensor and voice warning if anyone should get to close to the car, ignition kill that can be activated up to a block away, pager alert, 120 db alarm, remotes. On board battery charger.
Vehicle was appraised by Hagerty in 2000 for $43,000. Can email lots of pictures!!
