I am the third owner of this very nice "Pagoda" that has been kept in "climate controlled" garages all its life. The interior has been reupholstered with Mercedes "MB Text" in the original gray colors. The rare exterior color (Anthracite Grey) is the original factory color. The Manual 4-speed transmission is also a rare find. The Hard and Soft tops are in excellent condition as well. Car runs very well and the engine and mileage are original. This car in my opinion is to nice for every day driving, though i am not a Car Buff, I believe it belongs in a Collectors Showroom. I am only selling in order to purchase a Custom Sprinter Van for traveling, sadly i cannot afford both.
