After acquiring this older restoration, we had our shop undertake a
thorough freshening of this fine car. Under stewardship of its
previous owner, it underwent a comprehensive restoration and a
photo album of that process accompanies the car, This was a very
solid car with reasonably good floors which were repaired during
that earlier restoration. While acceptable, we felt the overall
condition of this car warranted a higher standard. Consequently,
our shop has replaced the floors with OEM quality replacements so
that it is now as nice underneath as it is topside. Among other
work we've installed new Mercedes OEM chrome rocker moldings and a
new top in the correct canvas material along with new chrome top
bow and new top boot. Note the car does not include a hard top. The
bright work and chrome is all very good without any pitting. The
interior is in great shape with clean, unmarked seat upholstery.
The carpets and door panels are in good order as well. The engine
has been rebuilt and retains its original Solex carburetors. It has
good oil pressure at all temperatures and maintains a normal
temperature range when underway. The transmission shifts well and
has had new shift linkage bushings recently installed.Overall, the
car runs and drives very well. If you would like to see, inspect,
and drive this car in person, our showroom and shop is only one
mile from the St. Louis airport making us convenient to visit from
just about anywhere. For questions or further information, contact
