This is my gorgeous 1968 Mercedes 250S S-class sedan with 21,931 miles.  This is without a doubt one of the finest W108-body Mercedes for sale anywhere in the country.

This is a ONE-OWNER car purchased from the estate of the original owner who bought it brand new back in 1968. 

This car has been garaged, well-kept and continuously serviced since new. 

This Mercedes has an amazing number of features that made it very advanced for 1968, including unibody construction with safety cage, overhead cam 6-cylinder engine, four-speed automatic transmission, four-wheel disc brakes, fully independent suspension, and much more.  As a result, this drives much like a modern car- to drive it you can hardly believe that it is 45 years old.

This car drives outstandingly well- it drives as well as it looks or maybe even better.  The whole car is tight, solid and responsive.  The steering, brakes, suspension, etc are all TIGHT and the car tracks down the road precisely and handles very well.  This car is a true pleasure to drive and the superior German engineering is evident in the smooth and solid operation of every knob, lever, button and door handle. 

This car is completely reliable, dependable and in excellent mechanical condition.  The car starts, runs, shifts and drives beautifully.  I would not hesitate to make a long drive anywhere in this car- I would drive to California and back with no worries.

The mileage reads 21,931.  This mileage is strongly believed to be original and accurate miles, but due to the age of the car, the title will read that the mileage "exceeds mechanical limits".

The body and paint are in beautiful condition.  The car has had one repaint, and the paint is very good for a 45 year old car.  It shines well and looks great.  There are no dings or dents of any significance- the body is completely straight and clean.

The interior is clean and in great condition.  The driver's and passenger front floormats have been replaced with newer carpet, but the rest of the carpet is original and still in very presentable condition.  The vinyl seats are excellent, with no rips or tears, and with all the springs and stuffing in good shape- no sagging or poking.  The wood dashboard is in great shape and the original AM/FM radio works well.  The steering wheel is the original white Mercedes wheel in great shape and the transmission shift knob is wood, also in great shape.

To nitpick, here are the only faults I can mention: there is what sounds like a very minor exhaust leak at the resonator, there are a few tiny bubbles in the paint, when I say tiny I mean the size of a pencil eraser, and there is one spot where paint has flaked off on the driver's side front fender that has been brush-touched.  The electric clock appears to work but doesn't keep accurate time; it runs slow.  The sideview mirrors are not the originals, but correct original mirrors are included with the car in the trunk. 

This car is 45 years old and as such it is not brand new.  Please expect normal issues of wear and tear consistent with the age of the car. The interior and exterior show normal minor wear and tear and small faults and flaws.  That said, this is probably the nicest W108 Mercedes you will find for sale anywhere.

Also included with the car are service/repair manuals, the original Mercedes-Benz dealer directory from 1968 as well as a box of spare parts and service parts. 

You can fly in to Cleveland (CLE) and drive this car home if you wish.  Alternatively you can have the car shipped- I highly recommend Angels Moving Autos at 530 245 0481.

2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA priced from $31,300*

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 23:38:00 EST

Mercedes-Benz has kindly let loose the price of the 2015 GLA-Class, telling Autoblog.com that the base 208-horsepower GLA250 in two-wheel drive will go for $31,300 *not including a destination charge of $925. That makes for $32,225 in total to get one off the lot, a price predicted as early as last year and in our recent First Drive. The other two available models can push power to all four wheels, and after the destination fee is applied the GLA240 4Matic (pictured) will be $34,225 while the 355-horsepower GLA45 AMG will change lives and wallets to the tune of $49,225.
On the base scale, that puts the GLA250 just a few hundred dollar bills above the more powerful, rear-wheel drive BMW X1 and a stack of hundreds below the less powerful, front-wheel drive Audi Q3. If you're keeping in-house score, the GLA250 comes in at $1,400 above its sedan platform-mate with the same engine, the CLA250. At the high end, however, the competition doesn't have anything that can touch the AMG trim. Not that it should matter all that much - Mercedes needed something to keep these buyers in the family, and now they have it. If any of them should need even more power and more money spent, then there's always that 394-hp Brabus flavor. We'll have more info and details on each trim when Mercedes unleashes the shebang in the not-too-distant future.

Mercedes working on new inline-six engines

Mon, 11 Nov 2013 18:29:00 EST

Mercedes-Benz will make a return to the inline-six-cylinder engine game, according to a report from the UK's AutoCar. It's not clear what's prompting the phasing out of the current array of V6s.
We'll see the first inline-six from Mercedes in next-generation E-Class, set to debut in 2016. Following that, it'll arrive as part of a mid-cycle refresh for the C-Class in 2017. What's particularly special about the new inline-six is its modular nature, which will allow Mercedes to eventually spinoff three- and four-cylinder options, with the three-pot arriving alongside the new inline-six.
In other news, AutoCar uncovered some details on the next C-Class AMG, which will ditch its excellent 6.2-liter, AMG V8 in favor of a 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V8, although we've already told you about that. What we didn't know at the time, though, was that the 4.0-liter would be paired first with a new, seven-speed AMG Speedshift transmission and offer all-wheel drive. AC also reports that a nine-speed Speedshift is in the works.

2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class lineup shows its freshened face

Mon, 14 Jan 2013 12:35:00 EST

Mercedes-Benz showed us its redesigned 2014 E-Class more than a month ago, but the Detroit Auto Show finally gave us a chance to see the full family of mid-size luxury cars and wagons in the flesh. Dieter Zetsche introduced the cars, including sedan, coupe, convertible and station wagon, on stage showing the stylish new design direction.
The wagon and sedan versions (shown as the E400 Hybrid above) will go on sale this spring, while the coupe and cabriolet will hit showrooms over the summer. Check our new gallery of live shots for the entire 2014 E-Class lineup, as well as the previously released press release below.
