1966 Mercedes-Benz 230S

While they might have classic looks, the Mercedes-Benz W111 is one of those classics that you could conceivably use everyday. In the early 1970s, my father bought a 230S similar to this car for sale in California. Finished in black, it was an imposing sedan and one which stood out amongst the sea of domestic iron that roamed the streets of Philadelphia. These classic Benzes are more affordable than one would suspect and a great choice for someone looking for a car they can both show off at car shows on the weekend but use as intended during the week.

The seller erred in stating that this car had a 3-speed manual. The 230S was available with either a 4-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission. This seems to be a solid runner, with decent cosmetics and just the right amount of patina in the right places. While the color isn’t my favorite and I’m not a fan of the aftermarket console under the dash, this is one of the better examples of a 230S that I’ve seen recently. Top notch examples will sometimes top $10,000 by just a little bit. The asking price for this car isn’t way out of line, but I’d probably target a price of somewhere closer to $7,500 to $8,000.

  1. Having had one of these I have to say they are a blast.
    Looking at this one leaves me a bit uneasy. No shots of the undercarriage, or the inside of the head light buckets, a not very illumiinating engine bay shot, mistaken 3 speed. modern dealer plates, a delaminating and very water dameged looking wooden veneer dash.

    Could be everything is jake but you have to wonder
