Wow, what a treat to eyes, looks clean and very well maintained. Just for the record how many Kms has it done?

Wish you many more years and many more miles with this beauty.

WOW! thats a lovely ride you have there.
Loved the interiors, Is it Art leather or OE leather? keeping the beige clean is a task though. New license plates like the HSRP ones would complete the picture.
Good Job!

Now that is a classic at its best. As a tbhpian's mom once said- This is called a REAL Mercedes.
Hats off to you for such a wonderful restoration.

Very good restoration job. Looks classy!

You could have made the thread more interesting by posting the before pics first, the work-in-progress pics later and the final outcome in the end. Hope you don't mind me suggesting so!

Wow what a restoration, the back left hand side tyre looks to be tillted inwards, and is that the way back seats always came, seems lacking underthigh support a bit, but all in all what a good looking car, simply fantastic. Congrats.

Superb restoration looks almost out of the show room . So who did the resto if we may ask?

Lovely colour job as well. The beige Seats with Black exterior are a perfect combo.
