For Sale: 1972 Mercedes-Benz 250CE in Atlanta, Georgia


Vehicle Description

Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this handsome 1972 Mercedes-Benz 250CE. This W114 coupe, also known as a Stroke 8, is a European-market example that was originally delivered to the wife of a retired U.S. diplomat in Malaga, Spain. When she and her husband moved to the US in 1976, she brought the car with her (she and subsequent owners have meticulously kept it in outstanding condition). It's finished in the attractive combination of 050 white over red MB-tex interior and is unusually optioned with floor shift automatic transmission, power steering, tinted glass, factory skid plates and (ice cold) air conditioning - but factory radio, sunroof and power window delete.

We find it amazing how timeless Paul Bracq's design remains when seen in this early Euro form - and fortunately this example was never federalized so it retains its attractive glass headlamps with integrated fog lights and lovely small chrome bumpers. It has 143,000 KM (89,000 miles) which we believe to be original. The car has seen one high-quality repaint in the correct color - panel gaps and shut lines are excellent as is the underside.

The interior remains in very nice, mostly original condition - the wood has been professionally restored and the clock has been converted to quartz movement. Gauges and switchgear are in excellent working order. The electronically fuel injected 2.5 liter 6-cylinder engine starts easily hot or cold and runs beautifully - it's mated to a smooth-shifting 4-speed automatic.

Recent service has included brake rebuild, shocks, tie rods and alignment, a/c service, new tires on factory wheels and more. A number of new spare parts are included along with some service records, tool roll, first aid kit and factory service manuals. This is certainly one of the best Stroke 8s available and would make a nice addition to any collection.
