Tiny oil leak under engine as usual with most of these cars, needs new rear rubber right side passenger door seal. Ac works and blows air but not cold, have never checked it hopefully a regas, left side passenger window works up and down but stops about an inch from top, needs bearings in door realined motor works well can be closed completely with a screw driver have left open for air ventilation. Have sprayed the wheels a dirty chrome colour and now they are quite ugly, would look nice with full vintage black or white Mercedes caps, some cracking on dash but no chunks missing
It's not perfect but a fine example, if it was perfect I would ask 45k The car is impressive and always turns heads, originally imported from the Middle East in the early 80s
