Highly original example of Mercedes’ technological tour de force. No-expense-spared maintenance by model experts, with several important technical upgrades. The ultimate statement of post-war luxury.
This 1968 600 SWB Sedan is a particularly fine example that has been treated to extensive, professional care in the hands of its past owners. It is accompanied by an impressive stack of paperwork that documents the maintenance and essential, specialized upgrades it has received in recent years. This 600 is a very well-optioned car, finished as-delivered in Anthracite (code DB172) over a lovely tan leather interior and equipped as original with European headlamps, Bosch fog lamps, and a sunroof. The body is in very good condition and the doors shut with the vault-like precision expected of a 600. The paintwork is said to be mostly original and while some minor crazing is apparent upon close inspection, it remains glossy and attractive. The chrome and brightwork are similarly good, and is straight and largely original with a light care-worn appearance.
Interior appointments include a cooled compartment between the front seats, complete with shot glasses and a thermos, as well as rear picnic trays, ivory steering wheel, power adjustable rear seats and rear privacy curtains. The tan leather has mellowed nicely, appearing well cared-for and in very sound condition. Extensive woodwork adorns the dash, windscreen frame, door caps, and picnic tables and it presents in excellent condition overall, with only some fading visible at the base of the windscreen. Updates include a modern radio and rebuilt window switches on all four doors. Original handbooks are included along with the 600-specific toolkit and very rare factory hydraulic service kit…………………..
