The photos, quite simply, do NOT begin to do this car justice. Exterior paint is excellent with only a few minor imperfections I can find. The interior is beautiful, black leather and very well fitted / installed. The wood is beautifully refinished. Best of all, it drives great and recently had a $23,000+ full suspension rebuild and other work. I’ve seen lesser 6.3s sell at big time auctions for a lot more money than what is being asked here. Don’t buy a $45,000 Mercedes 6.3 that needs work and think you can save yourself money. Buy someone else’s completed project. -Dave Tobin
