That was the year when Merc kinda sorta tried to color match the lower cladding with a slightly darker tint....

The signal red and almost maroon combo was one of the worst.

Needless to say it was a poor decision on their part and eventually they got it right !!!!

Oh, I dunno. I think it sort of has some fire chief car effect happening.

What were they thinking?

Too bad... make that Black on Black and you probably could have doubled the value.

wow. i agree completely.
i like that red tone, but the darker red lower-cladding is hideous.
it wouldn't stop me from buying the car though (the asking price might); it would be easy enough to remove the bumpers and lower cladding and just have it resprayed another color - like gray.

And while the cladding & bumpers are off why not do the job right, how about that rare Burgundy color top & bottom? I'd buy it if it were anything except what it is! I'd bet if it were all Burgundy he'd get the asking price easily.

Stop Giving Them Away

Please......

Stop "giving" them away so cheap.
These cars are getting more rare everu day.
They sold new for about $55,000.00.

When YOU sell them so cheaply, it lowers the value of them all.

If we owners STOPPED giving them away, the value would appreciate.

What's wrong with the signal red? I like that color but with the cladding matched signal red also - thats what I have on my 190E.
