The gentlemen who I purchased the vehicle from told me that he got it from the first owner outside of Detroit. An older couple who had it in storage for ten years. He didn't drive it too much and was supposedly in concours condition until he lent it to a friend for three years. While in his friends possession, a wood trim piece from the glove box broke off, dashboard developed a few small cracks and the driver seat has a hole in the bolster leather. Other than that it is still in nearly perfect condition, 84,000 original miles. This is my first Mercedes, I've wanted one since I was about 12 years old, especially the W123 models, and especially the rare coupe body style. Buying this vehicle has made me the happiest guy in the world.
