Re: [MBZ] Awesome W111 coupe but is the color authentic?

I have to ask: why would the lack of power windows be a deal killer? Lots of 
crank windows in cars of that vintage.

Because if I am driving solo I do NOT want to crawl over the center console
just raise or lower the PS windows, nor do I want to wrench my shoulder
doing the same to the LR window.

Definitely NOT Mercedes Blue, but may be a factory color.  Ask for 
the paint code number.  I would guess not a factory color, as it is 
not a common factory color.


Why did they spend so much money to replate and paint everything, 
then not buy a new Negative Battery cable?  $10 from the factory?

I saw an ('88?) SL for sale at an indies shop. I think it was the same as the

I'll stop and check it out next time I'm over that way if anyone is  interested.

I got to drive around Sinatra's car and I loved the huge sunroof and

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.
