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.

EVO "2012 Car of the Year: The Track Battles" is a sports car salmagundi

Sun, 25 Nov 2012 17:30:00 EST

EVO has come out with another gotta-watch-it video, throwing its 2012 Car of the Year contestants around the UK's 1.5-mile Blyton Park track. It's actually a 15-minute teaser for the full-length DVD detailing the magazine's Car of the Year selection, but the tease is worth every penny free second.
Tiff Needell and sports car racer Richard Meaden handle the wheel duties, the two driving five pairs of sports cars: Lotus Exige S vs. Porsche Boxster S, Morgan Three-Wheeler vs. Toyota GT86, BMW M135i vs. Porsche 911, Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series vs. Alpina B3 GT3, the marquee event pits the McLaren MP4-12C vs. the Pagani Huayra. After a head-to-head lap with commentary during drifts, Meaden takes each car out to set a representative lap time.
You'll find the verdicts, lots of tire smoke, and lines like "Anything you can do sideways I can do sideways" in the video below.

Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG officially teased in mini video

Mon, 15 Jul 2013 18:33:00 EST

The followup to the Mercedes-Benz S550, the S63 AMG, will sport a biturbocharged V8 that will likely turn out around 550 horsepower. The new engine is probably the 5.5-liter, biturbocharged V-8 that's been popping up in everything from the ML63 to the E63 AMG. The front fascia is more aggressive, which shouldn't come as a surprise, while a meaty exhaust setup can be found out back.
We managed to pick all that up from a short, 17-second video posted by MB. The original video that unveiled the S63 AMG has since been pulled down, making this YouTube clip the best look we now have at the new super sedan, at least until the Germans give up the goods for real.
Be sure to check out the video below, along with our original posting on the S63 AMG.

Test drive the Mercedes SLS AMG Electric Drive with Chris Harris

Thu, 11 Apr 2013 20:01:00 EST

It's hard to not like the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT. The all-aluminum coupe is fitted with a wonderful naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V8 delivering 583 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque. Not only does the burly combustion engine launch the two-seater to 60 miles per hour in less than four seconds, but it does so with one of the world's greatest exhaust soundtracks as it roars, burbles and cackles down the road.
But what happens when Mercedes-Benz takes away the V8 and its accompanying fire-burning song? Stripped of one of its most appealing assets, does the SLS lose its soul?
Chris Harris recently had the opportunity to take the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Electric Drive for a track spin in Europe. Sans gasoline, but with four electric motors providing a combined 740 horsepower (737 pound-feet of torque), all-electric all-wheel drive coupe uses sophisticated torque vectoring and a multi-mode operating system to put oversteer - drifting! - back into the equation. Fun? You bet. See for yourself, below.
