PPI's WELCOME OFFERS WELCOME! 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 DRIVES, AND IT'S ALL THERE! 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 driving. 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,
