This 1967 Mercedes-Benz 250S is finished in Black (040) over a Black Leather interior and was purchased by the selling dealer earlier this year. Power is provided by a 2.5L M129 Inline-Six mated to the original 4-speed automatic transmission. Features include functional air conditioning, power windows, an original Becker head unit, and a driver side rearview mirror. Recent services include a carburetor rebuild, air filter install, and new tires within the last month and records documenting service and history from 1986 to 2012 are included in the sale. This 250S currently shows 14k miles on the odometer and is offered with thorough records and receipts, manufacturer’s literature, and a clean Florida title.
The exterior is finished in Black (040) as originally indicated on the datacard and plate under the hood. A complete repaint was previously performed under prior ownership in the mid-2010’s. Detailed photos of the paint, brightwork, and glass are included in the gallery below. The seller notes a couple imperfections including paint blemishes on the decklid noted in the gallery and paint bubbles in the bottom of the rear left door. The grille and brightwork present well without corrosion or pitting.
The original 14" wheels in matching Black paint are retained with this example including original beauty rings and Black hub caps. New Nexen whitewall tires measuring 195/75 on all four corners are shown.
The cabin is finished in Black Leather, optioned from the factory, with new leather front seat covers installed by the previous owner at the time of refurbishment. The doors, and dashboard are also finished in matching Black leather and black carpets accent the floors and transmission tunnel. Wood veneer is shown on the dashboard, center console, and interior windshield surround with various areas showing curling and warping due to heat. An original Becker head unit is shown in the dashboard and added air conditioning. This example features power windows with switches shown on each door with the seller noting intermittent switch function. Additionally, the horn is noted as non-functioning.
The ivory steering wheel frames the original gauge cluster featuring two analog gauges for speed in miles per hour and a tachometer. Centered in between is a vertical analog display with readouts for fuel level, engine temperature, and oil pressure. The analog odometer reads 14k miles with one rollover believed previously.
The 2.5L M129 inline-six was rated at 128 horsepower when new and is coupled with a 4-speed automatic transmission. All components are reportedly working as they should with most recent services including a carburetor tune up and new air filter. Additionally, a binder showing records and receipts from 1986 to 2012 is included in the sale.
This 250S is offered with thorough records and receipts, manufacturer’s literature, and a clean Florida title.
The seller has included videos showing a walk around, interior tour, underside view, and driving functions below.
The 108 chassis sedan is a true icon of the 1960’s motoring scene and a prominent placeholder in Mercedes-Benz history as one of the most strikingly beautiful cars ever produced. This specific example immediately catches our attention for the color combination (or lackthereof) and seems to have been particularly well-cared for and preserved. In addition to the automatic floor shift transmission, this example sports power windows, A/C, and Weber carburetors. Examples like this are impressive buys right now and poised to be solid investments moving forward.
