For Sale: 1961 Mercedes-Benz 180B in Laguna Beach, California

Vehicle Description

Please contact Ray at 949-395-2339 for an appointment. By Appointment ONLY.
1961 MBZ 180b Fully restored. Strong engine, paint taken down to bare metal. All new interior including German $65/yard carpet, sound proofing material all over the car, German carpet floormats, all new seals, brush moldings, all gauges new/reconditioned, all new wiring harness. Classic radio. Brakes overhauled, new electronic ignition, all new chrome, tires, wheels. Every thing was taken off the car, and replaced with new. Most parts were from MBZ Classic Center, and other MBZ German car parts suppliers as well as used parts. Reconditioned fuel tank with sending unit. Radio operated clock per instructions on the MBZ Ponton.org web site. Radiator was completely rebuilt. All mechanical work performed by Tony at Tony's German Auto. New exhaust and the list just goes on. All paperwork and receipts and hundreds of pictures. Car had been changed to white, so the original birth card was obtained from MBZ Classic Center, and thru the restoration, the cream/ivory color was actually discovered under multiple coats of paint. ALL paint was taken off including the door jams. No powder coating, just painstaking removal of paint with sand paper and paint remover.
Car belonged to a family member who purchased from Germany and was taken to Middle East. Have a photo when I was 6 yrs old (50 yrs ago) of the car. It has sentimental value. I restored the car in 2012-2014 time frame. Some very expensive yet tasteful customization was done such as the Stainless steel trim on the sill plates when you open the front doors, as well as lighting and other automations.
The car is advertised thru Laguna Classic Cars but this is a consignment vehicle and it's stored in an indoor facility in Laguna Beach. Transaction will be done thru the dealer but it can be handled as a private party sale as well. If you are serious buyer, then please contact me for an appointment to show you the car. It'll need some work on the heater boxes, but that's about it.
