US California model. Unit is in very good condition and is looking for a good home with somebody to make it a showqueen or a really nice daily driver. Car was repainted by former (original?) owner prior to my purchase in the original Magnetit Blau mettallic paint. Interior seats were redone with a custom pattern and vinyl seating surfaces styled after the W140 series S class seats. Wood and instrument cluster is in superb condition.
Unit has Euro headlights with brand new lenses and brand new fog light lenses. Speedo is a European unit and only indicates km/h and was already like this when I acquired the vehicle. Approximate MILEage is just short of 140,000, however please note that the odometer stopped working a couple of weeks ago. The speedometer works fine, so it is simply the odometer shaft gear slipping a very common issue with Mercedes odometers from the 70s through mid 90s. This can be fixed by any competent DIY mechanic.
Car has always been maintained religiously and has never failed me once. oil+filter changes every 3000miles, transmission service every 15Kmiles. Fuel system was overhauled within the last year consisting of new fuel tank strainer, accumulator, fuel pump+filter, fuel damper cage, new injector seals. Car got new front brake discs, pads and bearings late last year along with brand new Pirelli tires on new OEM rims (not repainted). Sunroof works without issues. Battery is less than 1 year old. Ignition components were all replaced less than 12 months ago.
New factory climate control servo was installed about 1.5 years ago and cost almost $2000 to restore heater operation. Automatic climate control works fine with the exception of A/C. compressor is seized and must be replaced along with compressor manifold hose to restore A/C functionality. Car was never converted to R134a and should be kept using R12 if maximum cabin cooling is desired.
Left rear window is non-operational, but is likely caused by a dirty window switch which probably just needs to be cleaned with contact cleaner. Cruise control works intermittently, amplifier might need to be resoldered. Actuator servo has already been replaced.
All in all, this car is ideal for somebody who either wants to take it just a bit further to make it perfect or somebody who wants a really nice daily driver of this W116 body style.
