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.

World Car Of The Year down to its final four

Wed, 13 Mar 2013 10:44:00 EST


Judges for the World Car of the Year Award have narrowed down the finalists to just four vehicles. Out of a total of 42 entries, only the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, Porsche Boxster/Cayman, Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ/Toyota GT-86 and Volkswagen Golf remain standing. For Volkswagen, this marks the second consecutive year the company has had an entry among the finalists, and the fourth time since 2009. In order to qualify, a vehicle must be on sale on two continents during the span of time between January 1, 2013 and May 30, 2013. A panel of 66 journalists from 23 countries then vote on the finalists.
Three vehicles have made the cut for the last round of voting on the 2013 World Performance Car as well, with the Cayman/Boxster and FR-S/BRZ/GT-86 running against the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. Meanwhile, the Renault Zoe, Tesla Model S and Volvo V60 Plug-In Hybrid are duking it out for the World Green Car Award. Finally, the World Car Design of the Year Award is up for grabs between the Aston Martin Vanquish, Jaguar F-Type, and the Mazda6. Check out the full press release below. Overall winners will be presented at the 2013 New York Auto Show.

2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA order guide leaked

Wed, 06 Feb 2013 11:00:00 EST

The dealer order guide for the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA has made its way online courtesy of the crew at CLAForums.com, and not only does it shed light on the ways buyers will be able to configure the entry-level sedan, it talks specific option pricing. Shoppers will be able to select between the CLA250 and CLA250 4Matic, and the option sheet should offer a number of packages to suit buyer tastes, including a sport package with tweaked fascias and unique wheels. Bi-xenon headlamps and 18-inch alloys may also be had as well as a panoramic sunroof and a collision avoidance system. The CLA will be available with a number of active safety systems on board, including lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, park assist and blind spot assist, to name a few.
The new sedan comes in 10 colors, including a very dashing purple Mecedes-Benz calls Northern Lights Violet, and there are a total of four interior trim finishes. The automaker hasn't released final pricing of all models just as of yet - we do know from Mercedes' Kate Upton Super Bowl ad that the car will start at $29,900 - but you can check out individual option and package pricing in the gallery. You can also find more information over at CLAForums.com.

Mercedes testing C-Class plug-in hybrid modes in Germany

Wed, 07 May 2014 16:02:00 EST

Testing appears to be underway for what would be the first Mercedes-Benz C-Class with a hybrid powertrain. We can see a pair of the prototypes undergoing testing in Germany, with one, a C-Class Wagon, still heavily clad in camouflage and featuring a more noticeable outlet on the passenger side of its rear bumper.
There's also a more production-looking sedan, which features a not-so-discreet flap over its rear-bumper outlet. It's difficult to speculate on power outputs for this fuel-sipping C-Class, although our spies seem to think that this car will feature some combination of a four-cylinder gas engine with an electric motor, although just which four is unclear (note, we wouldn't mind if MB fit its 2.0-liter turbo with some batteries and motors). Regardless, the four-pot/electric motor seems like a pretty reasonable combo, although it probably means that Mercedes won't be challenging the six-cylinder-powered system of the BMW ActiveHybrid3 any time soon.
When the plug-in C-Class arrives later this year as a 2015 model, it will likely offer a full range of driving modes, including both gas or electric, only, as well as a more traditional hybrid mode.
