EXTERIOR
This is a truly beautiful example of Mercedes’ iconic and stylish two-seater convertible in a very unique Petrol Blue Metallic. The car is in fantastic condition, with no rust or corrosion in the problem areas such as wheel arches, front wings or the vents at the base of the windscreen. The soft top presents neatly while a colour-coded hard top, again in excellent condition, allows enjoyable all-year driving.

INTERIOR
The interior is beautifully preserved with none of the usual areas affected by hard use or neglect; the integrity of the seats, excellent and are in lovely condition for it’s age and mileage. The stitching appears with a consistent and clean weave throughout. The door panel vinyl coverings are free of wrinkles or shrinkage and fit as they should. The wooden inlays display a smooth lacquer, indicating a delicate use of switchgear whilst the rear bench looks exceptionally clean complimented by unmarked carpet and mats.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
With long ownership intervals, the car proves to be in excellent health and lifting the bonnet reveals a beautifully prepared engine bay. The engine generates plenty of torque with that familiar silky smooth warble and performs effortlessly whether at cruise or around town. The transmission performs without hesitation and shifts confidently through the gears.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The bottle top alloy wheels are presented in good order and come fitted with matching rubber all round showing plenty of tread. As for the brakes themselves, discs and pads show in good order and the system still provides efficient and smooth stopping power.
