In the Shop

In 2014 at Hot Rod Hotel in Buchanan, NY, the car received a full glass-out repaint using Glasurit in the factory Dunkelrot color. This extensive cosmetic restoration included a new windshield, all new door seals, weather stripping and replacement of any other rubber seals as needed. The rust-free body was wax-oiled too.

Mechanically, the chassis has been gone through with all new suspension sourced from the Mercedes-Benz Classic center including all new rubber bushings, new springs, Koni classic adjustable shocks, steering damper, and rare aluminum steelie wheels with hubcaps. The valves have been adjusted, stainless steel exhaust installed and any mechanical parts have been replaced as needed. The entire braking system has been refreshed as well. Electrically, the lighting system has been upgraded to a new Cibie dual headlight setup complete with NOS Cibie driving lights. 

We’d be happy to provide further documentation of the restoration, upon viewing you’ll quickly see that it would be impossible to recreate this car for the asking price. If you’re looking for a better sorted example of the beautiful W108, good luck. 

Contact our NY facility to schedule a viewing!
