12/71 114.023 250/8 "Californian" Mercedes

I have this car and cannot find any history of a "Californian". The logo is on the trunk. Its a 2 door.I'm interested in how many there are,and how many other mini models might have been made that are out there. Thank you. I'm posting on my cell, can't post pics, I can email pics on request.

114023 is a 1971 250 C. It's the 2-door version of the 114 sedan. Unless there is something "custom" about it, "Californian" is something that someone stuck on the trunk and means nothing.

Hi,

the only Mercedes model called "California" was indeed the W113 230/250/280SL. It had NO softtop and NO softtop frame, just a hardtop.
