I love the two-tone W111s and W108/109s. I would never purchase a coupe w/o power windows, however, so, not in the market for this one. I did wonder whether this is a true Mercedes blue as it looks unfamiliar. Anyone know?

I saw an ('88?) SL for sale at an indies shop. I think it was the same as the red one in this link but it wasn't red. I'll stop and check it out next time I'm over that way if anyone is interested. Gerry

I don't think I would conclude anything about the color of a car based on pictures via internet. There are too many variables that affect what your eye perceives. The only way to know is in the flesh, under natural light. -- Max Dillon Charleston SC '87 300TD '95 E300
