This is a no reserve listing.

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.

Mercedes Sprinter updated to take on Ford Transit, Ram ProMaster

Mon, 29 Apr 2013 11:00:00 EST

By the end of this year, the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter will be the second-oldest nameplate in its segment here in the States, but with hot new competition waiting in the wings, Mercedes-Benz is giving its hauler a freshened look and more equipment to stave off rivals. The Sprinter was a pioneer in bringing Euro-style delivery vans to North America, and it's inspired others to transplant their Continental offerings, with the all-new Ford Transit and Ram Promaster models launching shortly. It will also continue to do battle with lower-cost traditional competitors like the Chevrolet Express and Ford E-Series.
The big Sprinter will thus get a new look to go with more safety features and available technology. While the information released here technically covers the Euro-spec 2013 Sprinter (which goes on sale in September), the US market is expected to get the new Sprinter for the 2014 model year with many of the same features. Some of this new technology includes a Crosswind Assist feature as standard equipment and the availability of Collision Prevention Assist and Blind Spot Assist as optional safety measures - Mercedes-Benz says that all three are firsts for any van in the world. Also added to the updated Sprinter is a new 1.8-liter supercharged gasoline (or CNG) engine producing 156 horsepower, which will complement the line of diesel engines that carry over and help make the Sprinter the first cargo van to meet the upcoming Euro VI emissions standards. Additionally, a lower ride height is said to improve fuel economy and should improve handling while aiding ingress and egress for both people and cargo.
In terms of styling, the Sprinter's new face also looks more like the current line of Mercedes-Benz passenger cars. This includes a more upright grille along with changes to the hood, headlights and bumper that lend it a closer kinship to models like the CLS-Class and the updated E-Class. The Sprinter will offer both halogen and HID headlights, while the latter will get LED running lamps and offer Highbeam Assist. The images shown here only reveal the exterior from front angles, but it looks like few, if any, changes have been made to the rear of the van. Interior upgrades include a thicker steering wheel, a new shift lever and the latest in audio, navigation and entertainment systems. Scroll down for the official press release for the new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter.

Mercedes to roll out S65 AMG Coupe in July

Mon, 07 Apr 2014 16:31:00 EST

We're still a couple of weeks away from the public debut of the new Mercedes S63 AMG Coupe at the fast-approaching New York Auto Show, but already we're receiving word of an even more powerful version in the works. That, of course, would be the S65 AMG Coupe - the twelve-cylinder version of the latest S-Class Coupe, two-door counterpart to the S65 AMG sedan and replacement for the outgoing CL65 AMG.
Like the four-door version rolled out back in November, the S65 AMG Coupe would be distinguished from less powerful vehicles (which, lets face it, is just about everything) principally by its engine: a massive, 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 that produces 621 horsepower, 738 pound-feet of torque and cares as much about global warming as an oil-shipping mega-tanker.
Because Merc's 4Matic all-wheel drive system can't handle that much torque, the ne plus ultra coupe would (like the S65 sedan but unlike the S63 coupe) be offered only in rear-drive form. That means it will have that much more trouble getting the power down to the road, but since the Magic Body Control suspension is similarly incompatible with 4Matic, the flagship coupe will get that trick suspension.

Daimler buying 12% stake in Beijing Auto

Tue, 19 Nov 2013 08:00:00 EST

Daimler and Beijing Automotive are officially going steady, with the German company set to take a 12-percent stake in the Chinese brand tomorrow. The two are already tied up in a Mercedes engine plant in Beijing, of which BAIC will increase its stake in, from 50 to 51 percent. Daimler will also get two seats on the Chinese company's board. BAIC may also gain the ability to produce cars on Mercedes-Benz platforms, according to Automotive News Europe.
The investment in BAIC comes ahead of that company's initial public offering, according to a report form Bloomberg, which indicates the deal will be inked tomorrow in the Chinese capital. According to the report, if the circumstances are right, BAIC may turn around and invest in the Germany company "soon."
It's not entirely clear just how much the 12-percent cut is costing Daimler, although it seems reasonable to assume that, as it's ahead of the IPO, the parent company of Mercedes is getting a bit of a bargain.
