This ground-up restoration on a superb rust & accident-free body took over 3,000 hours and it was worth every minute.
This is one of the most beautiful restorations done to this European delivery floor-shift automatic coupe that can be seen today.
With a factory sunroof and Behr air conditioning this car was finished with every detail well thought out and executed.
Every square inch of this car was perfectly restored back to its original condition.

This is without doubt the best coupe that you will find. Anything that could have been bought new from the Mercedes Benz dealer was purchased for this beautiful, costly and time consuming restoration. The car was finished in factory silver blue metallic (906) with parchment leather interior and burlwood.

During it's 3,000 + hour restoration a factory 5-speed transmission was installed in the car making it a very special handling car and an awesome highway car. Once shifted into its fifth gear you can travel from coast to coast with a very relaxed rpm. Engine rebuilt by the best German Mechanic in Santa Monica, CA.

Complete brand new factory exhaust system. All of the chrome work was done by the best shop in Los Angeles (Christensen Plating),and they have worked with us for the last 35 years. They know these cars like no one else.

Suspension and rear end rebuilt with brand new factory parts. Brand new fuel pump. Too many new parts to list!

Over the years of collecting these great cars our enjoyment has been to acquire quality over quantity.
