This handsome left-hand drive Benz Coupe is finished in an attractive shade of Dark Blue complemented by beige interior trim. It resided in California before returning to Europe and being treated to an expensive body restoration in Belgium in 2006/2007. It received new front wings and sills while the bonnet, boot lid, and doors are said to be totally free of corrosion. The bumpers were rechromed and new period-correct whitewall crossply tyres fitted. The interior woodwork was professionally restored and the original (rare, five-pleat) seats and door cards recoloured. New period-correct box-weave carpets were installed. Recent work includes blasting and sealing of the fuel tank and an overhaul of the rear brakes. The vendor, who is reluctantly offering the Benz for sale due to ill health, now considers the car's bodywork, paintwork, interior trim, 2.2-litre engine and rare manual gearbox as all being in 'very good' order and says the engine 'runs very well and the gearchange is smooth and easy'.
