This car has matching numbers as per the data card from Mercedes Benz. Chassis, ody, ngine and transmission. Rear axle number cannot be read, ut is date stamped 1960. Four of the five wheels are date stamped 1960 (one dated 1959).

Structural: Front passenger and front driver side floors need replacement; back floors look good from what I can see. Sill rails front to back on both sides of car need to be replaced on the under body. Hood has hinge/alignment issue but both locks work and open with hood pull. Metal that separates trunk from back seat is in excellent condition. 3 inch hole in driver side wheel well-others appear fine. Appears (by viewing welds) passenger side fender replaced at one time. Doors open/close perfectly (see pictures to see gaps). Minor body repair left side rear quarter; small amount of Bondo at bottom of quarter. Trunk looks good as well as spare tire wells.

Solex carbs intact. Had no brakes when purchased, ut repaired a few leaks and bled system-now have a brake pedal. Wheels haveNOT been pulled.

Cosmetic: Car was originally Fire Engine Red(code 534) from factory. Poor quality paint job currently in beige. Some waves in fender; Needs windshield. Door panels and seats appear to be original, ut I am not sure. The seats have nails/staples and stuffing looks original. Car has jump seat with chaulk markings-appears to be original. Most chrome is pitted and needs to be rechromed or replaced.
