Just Imagine this 70s Classic Car

Convertible, well-design, manual and with a 150 horse-power 6-cylinder engine…. There’s so much to love about this Mercedes. And as we were research this model, we came across all sorts of interesting pieces about the car. Picture it with us: jumping into the driver’s seat on a beautiful day with a friend and just cruising the road. For this model, there’s a fine-tuned combination of comfort and performance that’s sure to please. And that ever-so gentle curve of the bonnet to offer extra engine space is elegant in a way that’s hard to explain.

And this Model Hits the Spot

Now, turning to this specific car, the auction’s photos are simple but magnificent. It’s hard not to stare at them for a long time. And when you discover that this vehicle has only had one owner… well, you get the idea. A conservative restoration has updated the paint to something that is out of this world. The green color is deep and rich, and yet, it’s also fresh at the same time. In addition, tis one also sports new tires and new chrome. And it really shows off the sophistication of this car that much more. The vehicles description also shows that the seller has taken time to help you appreciate this car beyond a mere quick sale.
