This car is in PHENOMENAL(!) original condition. It is a rare and stunning color combination, and truly, the car presents itself better in person. It starts, runs, drives and handles fantastic. The motor, transmission, suspension, and all accessories function excellent. There are no leaks of any kind. There is almost zero wear on the exterior and interior of the entire car. There are one or two VERY, very small chips in the paint that have been touched up (only a few mm in length) and the interior is nothing short of brand new. No cracks in the dash, no fading, no wear or tear of the seats or carpet, no stains on the headliner, the sun visors look new, door panels are tight, etc. This car looks and drives exactly as you would expect a car with only 50k original miles to look and drive....absolutely amazing!

This is an amazing example of one of the limited few W115 chassis that still remain phenomenally well preserved.
