    Reserve reduced a little more! We are right there keep bidding!

  • RastaMan says:

    Nice looking car – very interested in it, might even pay your reserve, but have a few questions:

    1) Do you have photos of the top of the dashboard? Are there ANY cracks at all?
    2) What is the ‘Lift System’ mentioned in the write up, any pictures of that?
    3) Seats look in good condition, MB tex or leather? any damage to them?
    4) Can you quickly take some photos of the undercarriage? Are there any rust issues at all?

      #1 – dash photos, only what is posted. can take close ups if yyou are interested, some minor cracks , you have to look close to se.
      #2 – lift system , no pic (Can send one) it is on Open Sky Motoring this unit is a manual lift 7:1 ratio. go to hart top lift section.
      #3 MB TEX normal wear no cracking.
      #4 no rust issues that I can see, will see what I can do for pictures under.

    • RastaMan says:

      Thank you, looks pretty good. Will your car roll into the bid continues section if it doesn’t sell here?

    • ACC Auctions says:

      Photos of the Seat and Dash have been added. Seller is 75 years old so undercarriage is difficult. Sorry.

  • Lewis15 says:

    Have you replaced the timing chain. It is due at or around 80,000 miles .

  • carnutmick says:

    Do you have any pictures of the undercarrige?

  • theGerman says:

    Is it a metalic paint? Pls send me the correct paint-number of this Mercedes Benz

    • 1948scott says:

      VIN = WDB BA48D1 JA 084313
      numbers on radiator cross member;
      870 262 9
      107 048 12
      71 70

      I believe 172M is the paint code or you can use the last eight digits of the vin and call any MB dealer parts dept and they can give you specifics.
