 Vehicle Description
Here''s your chance to buy a classic automobile whose value has increased over the last 7 years. Even a new Lexus can''t boast that!

This fine classic gets compliments wherever I park it for its classic styling and Mercedes'' unique Maple Yellow (#606) color. I am told it was the first modern sport performance sedan ever manufactured under any marque, and for that reason it was distinguished as the 1973 International Car of the Year. It was the inspiration for the BMW performance touring cars that didn''t come to market until 15 years later. It features a 190HP overhead cam gasoline powered V8 engine, automatic transmission, air conditioning, AM/FM/Cassette stereo, and power windows.

I love this car, but I can no longer keep a garage for it and I need to find it an appreciative owner and good home. My father was a master mechanic and its original owner. He fussed over this car for 159,000 miles until he was no longer able to drive, at which time it was put into storage. I have recently prepared the car for sale. It has been mechanically restored with all original parts except as noted below. The following documented items are new within the last 5,000 miles:
Fuel Pressure Regulator
Chain Tensioner
Camshaft and Rocker Arms
Reconditioned Engine Computer
8 Injectors
Blow Switch
Trigger Points
Spark Plugs
Airtex Fuel Pump
Cold Start Valve
Complete Exhaust System
Water Pump
Hood Release Cable
4 Firestone FT70C Tires
Brake Hoses
Fuel Filter & Strainer

Except for 3 years, the car was garaged for its entire life. The paint and trim are original, attractive, and in very good condition. There is very little rust except a rust-through in the right rear trunk well, and small spots where the paint is chipped. The car was never driven in snow or salt. It has never been in an accident, but it did have some very minor body work from a parking mishap that caused the bumper to scrape the space just under the left rear tail lamp assembly. With the exception of some clefts in the dashboard and wood, the interior appears quite new. The black MB-Tex seats show no wear, the upholstery is virtually flawless, and the black carpets and original gray floor mats are very clean except for heel wear on the driver''s mat.

The original documents, as well as the official Mercedes-Benz maintenance manuals will be included with the sale. I also can include a pair of sheepskin seat/headrest covers, but they show some signs of fading. You might also like to have a zero-mile $700.00 Bosch fuel pump that has a faulty relief valve that might be easily repaired.

Regarding price, I will accept a serious offer from any of the venues where I post this listing. I reserve the right to reject any offers. Your offer should consider the value of the mechanical restoration. The Hagerty Collectors Insurance Agency, LLC estimates the value between $6,900 and $11,000. Your offer may differ. The car is in the Princeton/Somerville area of New Jersey. You must be a US citizen and you must inspect and pick up this car in person. Payment by cash or PayPal only. Transfer of title shall follow transfer of funds into my bank account.
