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.

YouTube's Super Bowl commercial buzz list dominated by automakers [w/videos]

Thu, 31 Jan 2013 15:44:00 EST

After Sunday's big game, YouTube will be the place to watch every commercial that you missed when you left your seat for an emergency guac refill or, as we say in Cleveland, took the Browns to the Super Bowl. That makes YouTube the nation's water cooler on Monday, and it's got some preliminary stats to share in the lead up to kickoff.
As you know, Super Bowl advertisers, particularly automakers, like to endlessly tease their big budget commercials in the weeks before the game, many times revealing them outright days in advance. Because of this, YouTube can tell us which commercials have been viewed the most so far, and their top five list is all automakers.
Kaley Cuoco appears to have been a good investment for Toyota, as her ad for the RAV4 has garnered the most YouTube views - six million and counting - among Super Bowl commercials so far. Second place goes to Mercedes-Benz, though not its actual Super Bowl commercial, but rather the teaser for it. You know, the one with Kate Upton and the car washing, which is up to 5.6 million views. Third place is Audi's Prom commercial (3.3M views), fourth goes to Volkswagen's slightly controversial Get In, Get Happy ad (3.3M views), and the fifth and final spot is bookended by the teaser video for Kaley Cuoco's commercial (3.2M views). You can watch all five in order below.

Artist imagines eerie world where cars have no wheels

Thu, 24 Jan 2013 14:16:00 EST

The wheel ranks right up there with the telescope and four-slice toaster in the pantheon of inventions that have moved humankind forward. But what if a circle in three dimensions had never occurred to anyone, and we all had just moved on without it? Perhaps we'd be driving around in Lucas Motors Landspeeders with anti-gravity engines. Or maybe we'd have the same cars we do today, just without wheels.
That's the thought experiment that seems to have led French photographer Renaud Marion to create his six-image series called Air Drive. The shots depict cars throughout many eras of motoring that look normal except for one thing: they have no wheels. The models used include a Jaguar XK120, Cadillac DeVille (shown above), Chevrolet El Camino and Camaro, and Mercedes-Benz SL and 300 roadsters.
Perhaps one day when our future becomes our past, you'll be able to walk the street and see with your own eyes the rust and patina of age on our nation's fleet of floating cars. Until then, Monsieur Marion's photographs will have to do.

Man makes record-setting drive across the US in 28 hours, 50 minutes

Fri, 01 Nov 2013 11:01:00 EST

Records, as the say, are made to be broken. Whether that's cramming the most hot dogs down your gullet, running a faster mile, or yes, driving across the United States, odds are that there's someone out there wants to eat more, run faster or drive harder. Speaking of that last example, the record for driving from a set location on the east coast, in particular the Red Ball Garage in Manhattan to the Portofino Hotel in Redondo Beach, CA, has been one that has fascinated gearheads since a guy named Cannonball Baker made the trek from New York to LA in 53 hours, 30 minutes, in 1933.
The competition saw its glory days when Car and Driver's Brock Yates came up with the Cannonball Baker Sea-To-Shining Sea Memorial Trophy Dash (more affectionately known as the Cannonball Run), although the record was most recently set by Alex Roy and his 32-hour, seven-minute trek behind the wheel of a BMW M5 in 2006. Now, there's a new champion, who made the trip from east to west in a scarcely imaginable 28 hours and 50 minutes, behind the wheel of a 2004 Mercedes-Benz CL55 AMG. That's works out to an average speed of 98 miles per hour over the course of 2,813.7 miles.
His name is Ed Bolian, and Jalopnik has a writeup of the epic voyage that details everything from the history of the Cannonball Run to Bolian's preparation and trouble finding co-drivers, to the trip itself. It is well worth a read.
