I purchased this wagon some time ago from aEstate Auction in North Carolina. The auction included several desirable low mileage collectable pieces, and this wagon was one of them. The original owners were a very affluent family and this wagon was used by the House Manager from 1980 to 1985 and then put into heated storage collecting only nominal miles until I purchased it for my personal collection.
The interest in this wagon to me was obviously the low original miles, which you almost NEVER see, insofar as these wagons are indestructible and are ALL well beat up today. Secondly, the overall condition and the continued maintenance throughout the years were exceptional...and the wagon is wholeheartedly rust free.
The engine still has the original paint on the block, and always fires right up, and for a naturally aspirated OM617, gets up and goes just fine...unlike some that are mistimed andcan't get out of their own way.
The interior is all original and in excellent shape, with nice carpets, excellent wood veneers, and everything seems to work great. The HVAC system recently had extensive work to bring it up to par.
The exterior is all original paint, and for 40 years old, ismarvelous. I honestlycan't rate the paint, but for 40 years old its some of the nicest I've seen.
The rear suspension was also recently completely overhauled, and pretty much every gasket in the darn wagon has been replaced, the service records read more of a Boeing 747 rather than a Mercedes wagon.
I had the tires replaced, and have enjoyed the trouble free simplicityof the wagon, and it always gets thumbs ups at gas stations, the gold course, and the local Starbucks. The condition of this wagon seems to bring back memories of when we were younger, and this wagon has stood the passage of time.
This is not a "fixer upper", this is a wagon you can hop in and drive anywhere, its like a new wagon...quite impressive.
If you look at my extensive feedback, you will see I have a knack for honest descriptions, and happy buyers. I consider myself a knowledgable collector, and if you are looking for a wagon with bondo for 1/4 panels, and rolled back odometers, cracked dashes, missing veneers...ebay is full of them. If you want a high quality original, this car does not disappoint.
This wagon, like most of my cars, are sold within a few days of listing them. If you'd like to talk about the wagon...give me a call...630 273 7595...if you need help with shipping I have a brokerage account with Central Dispatch...insofar as I move alot of my collection to shows around the country...and the $100 a month turned out to be a bargain....
Thanks for looking!
