We just had the car fully serviced at Malibu Motors, our Mercedes Benz independent specialists of Santa Monica, CA where the car received a clean bill of health and whose service manager stated to us prior to our purchase that the car was definitely one of the very best examples in the world! The car also boats 4 all new Pirelli tires and the original spare tire is still in its compartment in the trunk.The car is a true time capsule and amazingly still boasts its original dated factory paper anti-freeze tags placed on the car prior to sale in 1988 to confirm that that anti-freeze protection had just been added prior to delivery, something we have never seen survive before in any of the numerous examples we have previously owned! Every component is still as new including the first aid kit, factory car cover, factory hard top cover and stand and the original factory tools! The car drives exactly like such a well maintained and serviced and fully documented Mercedes with only 8K original miles should and must be seen and driven to be truly appreciated! All the options are working as they should including the A/C. Without a doubt, this is one of the finest classically beautiful roadster designs built by Mercedes-Benz, probably the last classically beautiful convertible series they built and now becoming more desirable and collectible than ever before - certainly you will look long and hard to find a finer head-turning example with full documentation and with only 8K original miles of this penultimate year model in this most striking and desirable of color combinations available anywhere else!
