Description for Mercedes-Benz 400-Series 1988

Car is in fair-good condition. It is 30 years old, an antique and you can put antique tags on it, but it does have a fresh VA inspection. Was a daily driver (20-60 miles average per day) and was very reliable and drove like a top. Has been sitting for since April because I bought a newer Mercedes, only driven since then from time to time to keep battery charged and get car inspected and rear rotors turned and new brakes. Though it does drive great, strong engine and smooth ride, it does leak a bit of oil and a good amount of power steering fluid. Foam hood pad is breaking apart. No known mechanical issues with engine or drivetrain. Clear coat has been peeling last couple years and there are some dings and scratches, but overall in pretty good shape. Interior, there is a spot on the driver door where the leather/vinyl wore off, and the front seats are worn considerably. Carpet could use a wash and there is a crack on the dash. The AC and heat do not work, it is most likely a simple fix but not sure and kept forgetting to have it looked at when I had other work done. Also two of the windows do not work because of the switches and the sunroof pops up but does not open properly and can be difficult to close if you did open it. Overall, a great car that could be a daily driver or Sunday drive. Little TLC and can fix a few minor issues. Sold as is.
