Find out where we are FOR SALE; Gorgeous “Heckflosse” Coupe in Navy Blue over Black
Sunroof, Original Blaupunkt AM / FM Radio, Power Windows, Kuhlmeister AC, Lockable glove box, VDO clock
Respendent in Navy Blue it’s hard to imagine a more tasteful example of Mercedes’ “Heckflosse” Fintail coupe, the color combination complimenting the enduringly elegant yet masculine design perfectly. Bursting with chrome all around the car, the signature front grille and stacked lights are pure Mercedes lifeblood with the three pointed star sat proudly atop the bonnet.
The paintwork presents with a consistent shine and lustre throughout, and although there are some areas that can be improved over time, the car is eminently presentable with significant presence and style.
Opening the large Coupe doors reveals beautiful chromed capping to both the door and side sills, giving way to the smell of a rich, distinct combination of leather and wood veneer. The front seats have been re-trimmed and maintain an original matte finish with the rear bench remaining in clean and contoured condition pointing to minimal use. The wood dash inserts are in excellent order with only an isolated area of the varnished windscreen surround showing some light cracking. Carpets throughout the car retain factory fitment and present clean and tidy with only minimal wear to driver’s entry to report.
The sunroof, power windows, heater, air conditioning and original Blaupunkt radio work as they should.
Mechanically the car is in excellent condition, starting easily, idling consistently and with a recent gearbox rebuild pulls strongly and smoothly through each of the gears.
Whether cruising through town or set up for the long haul the car is an absolute joy to drive – modern enough to be comfortably enjoyed but also visceral enough to provide that vintage driving experience.
The 14 inch chrome cap wheels show a high shine displaying light use commensurate with age and mileage. The Goodyear white wall tyres show plenty of tread, suiting the period look and set the styling off wonderfully well.
The rear brakes have been stripped and cleaned alongside adjustment to the brake shoes to ensure the car pulls up as it should with a minimum of fuss.
First registered by Mercedes Benz of Sunset Boulevard, Hollywood, it is believed that the car remained with it’s first owner until 1977 before entering long term ownership with Louis Blau, the famous Bel Air Entertainment Attorney. Blau represented directors Stanley Kubrick and Francois Truffaut, Motown creator Berry Gordy and stars consisting of Donald O’Connor, Mitzi Gaynor, Walter Matthau, Richard Widmark and Lana Turner over a professional career that lasted more than 40 years.
The car was then purchased by the Auto Driving Museum of Segundo, California where it was displayed from 2008 until it’s arrival in the UK earlier this year. Immediately sent to local specialist NBA, a host of works have been carried out with suspension and brakes stripped and rebuilt.
An original book pack, dealer directory, owners manual and 11 stamps in the original service book, mostly from the supplying dealer, offer further provenance to this beautiful W111; a 2.8 Coupe undoubtedly set to provide another 48 years of pride of ownership for its next owner.
Please visit our website for a full write up and additional photographs.
The car is supplied having had an extensive intake inspection. Warranty, Finance, Part Exchange and Worldwide shipping are all available on request.
