Mercedes-Benz produced their Second Series W110 for the three model years 1966 through 1968. Production of the new 200, 200D, and 230 models started in July 1965 at the Mercedes’ Sindelfingen, West Germany facility. Visually, the second series models had the front indicators relocated from the top of the front fenders to below the headlights. At the rear, the taillights were squared off and the chrome trim was revised to feature two horizontal trim strips instead of chrome-trimmed tail fins. All models now featured air outlets with chrome trim on the C-pillars (identical to the W111 models). Inside, there were very few changes except all models now featured reclining front seats and a central armrest in the back seat.
If you’re looking for a mechanically sorted W110 sedan you can use as a daily driver or perhaps you have an interest in cosmetically restoring a vintage Fin Tail, then this 230 sedan may be the car for you.
George, the current caretaker of this 230 Sedan, purchased the car thirty-three years ago in 1988 in Morristown, New Jersey for his Daughter. When she didn’t like driving a vintage Mercedes, George found himself using the car himself on weekends. When George retired to Hampton, Virginia, he used the car to make the trip and has only driven it only three to four times per month ever since.
After deciding to sell his Mercedes, George had his trusted mechanic perform the following to ensure the car is reliably road-ready for the next owner:
- Full tuneup and system check.
- Replaced brake pads.
- Removed and reconditioned gas tank.
- Removed and rebuilt carburetor.
- Installed gasket on brake master cylinder.
- Replaced and balanced all tires.
- Installed a new battery.
- Replaced the fuel filter and water pump.
