Click below for picture collage.

ART is one of the most beautiful classic Mercedes sedan I have ever seen. In as new condition.

Original paint (code 681 H Manila Beige) affectionately known as the Mercedes yellow with Camel interior it's an extremely gorgeous color combo. Pics don't do the car justice. It even smells awesome.
One previous owner car. Documented miles.

The price on the car is based on the rarity, condition, color, miles, original paint, wheels, carfax, history, records and Nada and Hagerty valuation guide. You may not see one as clean as this. It doesn't get any better.
First year of production built in 1982. It is a California car with no rust whatsoever it is CLEAN!
Notice the exceptionally high score for this car - carfax is A1 - Owner was in the military and worked for the Dept of Defense… Art is a special example of these cars and has been meticulously maintained.

I reserve the right to remove the auction at any time for any reason. I strongly urge interested parties to contact me as this is the best way to get the car.
Remember Ebay prohibits the removal of an auction within 24 hours of its completion so if you contact me with cash offers please do not wait until the last minute.
This car is going up in value every year. This is an extremely rare car. I would not be surprised at all if the "buy it now" option is applied to this auction as the car is very fairly priced. Do your research.
