Description

This classic car is for sale on Catawiki. To have more information or to place a bid click on the "BID NOW" button. .This special Mercedes 220 Strich 8 comes from California, you can really tell from the beautiful and very original bodywork.
Very nice and sleek.

This is a sought after original Blueplate!

Beautiful in baby blue (Horizontblau), it is an early W115 with beautiful chrome bumpers, quarter windows and smooth taillights.

Nice on the inside with beautiful details such as chrome edges on the instruments and the classic bakelite steering and a small round gearstick knob.

As far as we can see it still has the original paint and only very minimal rust, it has a beautiful shine and beautiful chrome.

Very modern for that time with disc brakes all around and independent suspension, these models drive very well and are indestructible.

The car had ex factory air conditioning (!) but it’s is no longer complete.

The interior needs attention but it's all very manageable.
Approx. 2 years ago stored in running condition, it will need to be checked.

Beautiful body, rarely seen and an ideal base to turn into a nice /8 or simply tidy it up and drive it as it is, it’s lots of fun and a classic model.

It comes with an American title and import document.

This unusual Mercedes Benz can be viewed and/or picked up in Herkenbosch, The Netherlands.
