Presented in a Triple Black color combination, this 1979 Mercedes Benz 6.9 may very well be the best example in the United States. Every aspect of this car is original and like new, both cosmetically and mechanically. The car was owned by a renowned Mercedes Benz collector who made every effort to meticulously maintain the car, with most of the service and maintenance being performed by the late Andrew Bach, considered one of the best Mercedes-Benz mechanics in the U.S. The car has a beautiful black leather interior in as new condition and has special options including black velour seat inserts(option code number 900a), electric driver's seat with door panel mounted controls(option code number 221) and European headlights. These desirable options were ordered from the Mercedes-Benz factory by Andrew Bach and were installed as per factory standards. The factory sunroof works as it should, and the air conditioning blows cold. The original black paint looks like new and the chrome is excellent. The car has had a complete service and hydraulic work and checkup performed just 50 miles ago. The work was done at Star Motors in New York, a renowned facility for 6.9 Mercedes. The hydro pneumatic self leveling suspension performs flawlessly and the big 6.9 liter engine is incredibly smooth. Having the distinction of being one of the first vehicles equipped with anti lock brakes from the factory, these cars not only handle, brake and out perform many of the modern luxury sedans, but they look better doing it as well. A 1978 450 SEL 6.9 recently sold at Gooding and Co for $156,000 and we beg anyone to tell us that their car was of better original quality than ours.
