It's like finding a Picasso in the attic
Evolve Motors is proud to present this 1967 NUMBERS MATCHING, ORIGINAL
Mercedes-Benz 250SL. The story on this car is just too cool. You're
looking at 1 of about 459 built for the year
1967, with this unique setup. If you were to set this 250SL next to
your friend's 250 that was built for America, the subtle differences
become plain as day. The first thing you notice, is that this is a
true right hand drive car, built for European specifications
Furthermore, it is a “California Coupe” with a bench style rear seat
It has the correct European headlights as well
This car is a true numbers correct “California
Coupe” with it's original removable hardtop in
tact with it's original “Signal Red” paint surviving under a black paint over. When you really combine all of the small details of this car, it's hard to say how
many 1967 RHD California Coupe 250 SL's like
this were ever produced. Here's
your chance to own a piece of automotive history
This car was believed to be owned by someone in Louisiana on the coast
who brought it back from his tour of duty overseas. The car ended up
in Mississippi where it has been stored for most of the last 30
years. Because it's been a southern car most of it's life, the
underside is solid throughout except for the right rear area, where
we see some work was done to either seal or stop any
rust from spreading. We dont know how bad it is, but
view the pictures carefully. This car was
a true barn find, so the condition we would call it is “restoration
ready”. It truly needs to find someone to give it the time and love
that it deserves. The good news is; IT'S ALL ORIGINAL, IT RUNS AND
Mechanically there wasn't much we could complain about. The car starts right up
after a few cranks (may need a battery replaced). It drives and
shifts well, with no pull to the left or right on the wheel. The
suspension is nice and tight, with no creaks, moans or groans as we
rolled it over a few speed bumps in our initial test drive
In 2006 the owner rebuilt the motor, brakes, fuel system, and drive
line. We have ALL parts receipts, (all OEM Mercedes-Benz parts
including brakes (calipers and master cylinder), water pump, fuel
pump, universal joints, transmission service, ignition, shift
linkages, fuel tank, etc... The hard part of this restoration is
done – the mechanicals! We
were told that they spent over $12,000 in repairs that year
Apparently his young daughters demanded
that he got the car
The interior of this car has seen better days, as looking at the pictures
will tell you. Again, we stress that this car sat a good portion of
it's life in a barn just outside Memphis ,TN. The seats will need
restored, as well as the carpets, and door panels. The frames of the
seats are in great shape
