This 1966 Mercedes-Benz 200 Sedan “Fintail” was purchased new and registered in California with prior registration shown in Alaska. It was purchased by the current owner in 2021 in the current condition as a planned running restoration candidate. The sedan is finished in factory-spec Papyrus White (717) paint over a Red MB-Tex interior. Power is provided by the original 2.0-liter M121 inline-four paired with a 4-speed manual transmission. The seller notes this Fintail starts and drives well and shows original glass and brightwork. Recent services include an oil change and service along with a new clutch slave cylinder. A clean Montana title accompanies this 200 sedan along with original paint-matched hubcaps, two ignition keys, 2 door lock keys, one trunk key, and recent service records.
