The overall condition of the vehicle is just excellent, inside and out.  

The car looks nearly new without having been through a clinical nut-and-bolt restoration—just meticulous and consistent care to coax the natural beauty of the vehicle back to life.  

The overall exterior finish is still deep and lustrous. The original upholstery was too beautiful to replace, but new factory-correct carpeting makes the original seats almost seem new again.


This 230SL is mechanically excellent.  The 6-cylinder engine is designed for a fantastically strong and smooth ride.
