With a thick service going back to day-one, when purchased from Mercedes’ factory store in Hollywood California, we can see she has just 125,800 actual miles. This may not shout, “low miles,” when discussing modern machinery, but when we consider over five decades old and a brand known for going hundreds of thousands of miles, this is noteworthy. The record shows she’s been well serviced over the years and even had a cylinder head rebuild. A life-long California car having spent the past 20 years, garage kept on a eucalyptus grove in Temecula, this is exactly how we like to find our cars.

With a smooth overhead cam, in-line six engine mated to a four-speed manual gearbox, she’s a joy to drive on country roads or a wonderful partner to consume freeway miles in stride.

Whether as a top down roadster, with soft top up or hard top in place for that elegant Pagoda coupe look, she garners admiring glances wherever she goes.
