Please read ALL of this description carefully. Paypal deposit $500 due 24 hours within auction ending
. I apologize to good EBAY bidders, but there have been some
folks who don't have command of the English language and do not understand simple instructions.
This vehicle has a clear Guatemalan Title, and has cleared customs in Jacksonville Florida
with all taxes and fees PAID. In order to title this vehicle in Florida, or in almost any other state, you simply
take the vehicle to the regional DMV , have it inspected, they check out the VIN, and you fill out a form,
and get a notarized translation of title. I sold many vehicles and had them titled this way. Its not rocket
science, I just want to be clear.
Please be prepared to do this or do not bid on this vehicle. And do your own homework. And COME SEE
THE CAR IN PERSON please,
Power Steering, Power Brakes, Sunroof, Wood trim, Air Conditioning, Wow!!!
This amazing car was purchased new in 1981 in Miami Florida by a well to do
Guatemalan who drove the car down to his native country upon purchase in 1981. The sticker price was
$32,000.00- Adjusting for inflation today this would be $88,000.00!!! These wagons
were SO popular there was a black market for used ones, as there was a wait of years
at the dealership for new ones!!!!!! This car was nicknamed Princess by the owner’s
family, as it was his pride and joy and he LOVED it. The car was always garage kept
and serviced according to manufacturer specifications by the dealer. The wagon has
the bullet proof 5 cylinder turbo charged diesel engine. Experts regard this is as one
of the most reliable engines ever produced. Half a million miles is not unheard of.
This one is barely broken in at a well maintained 96k!!!!! I purchased the car from the
original owners wife, and I have known the family for years.
The exterior paint was freshened up a few years ago and shows well. There are some
chips and minor defects. Princess was never in any accidents, and is virtually rust
free. There is a tiny dime size bubble forming behind the front passenger wheel well,
and a small area near the battery. The chrome trim is bright and laser straight. The
interior leather style seats and door panels are original and clean and look amazing!!!! The
quality of workmanship on this car is truly breath-taking . The sound the doors make
when closing is quality that does not exist anymore. There is a tiny hole in each of the
front seats, but they are hardly noticeable. Please refer to pictures. The dash with its
wood trim is perfect as it had a cover on it since new. All items that I inspected are in proper working
order including the air conditioning (blows cold), power door locks, power windows,
etc. Carpet is original and mostly nice; however there are a few wear spots and fading.
Please refer to pictures. This car is a joy to drive, and has plenty of power, !!! The
original Becker Europa stereo cassette system works and sounds great!!!! Well the
radio works, I haven’t tested the tape deck because I don’t have any tapes…. The only
item missing is the original antenna, which was replaced with a period correct cellular
one 25 years ago. The clock is not working, and I have not tried the heater; but I
remember the owner’s son telling me it was disconnected many years ago, as heat is
not used in this climate. It still has the sealed original first aid kit in the rear
compartment!!! The sunroof mechanism is in perfect working condition and does not
leak, and the crank looks like new
The car comes with all the original paperwork including the original owners manual,
maintenance booklet, dealer info and a bunch of other original Mercedes material
that came when the car was new. Please refer to photo. I would love to keep Princess,
but I don’t have space for her.

I have described this car to the best of my ability. This car is 36 years old and has no
warrantee. It is the responsibility of any prospective owners to ask questions and
inspect the car in person. I will do my best to answer any questions in a timely
manner. The rear hydraulic suspension works, and the rear shocks will need to be changed soon.
Any bidder with less than 10 feedbacks needs to contact me or I may remove their bid. I want to make sure
we are fair to all serious bidders. The vehicle has cleared customs and is ready to be registered in any state.
All import duties are paid. If you are bidding from overseas I can help with the logistics getting the car to port,
all costs are responsibility of the buyer. Please consider carefully bidding if you cannot come personally and
drive the car. The photos are accurate; I just want the buyer to make sure he is happy. Thank you
