SOLD Baby Blue Blitzen Benz: ’67 M-B 230S 4-speed
I love M-B Fintails that is why we have one here at Mint2Me. Why, you might ask, do they refer to this model as Heckflosse or Fintail? Let’s ask Wiki: Mercedes Benz Fintail (German: Heckflosse) is a nickname given to several Mercedes vehicles produced from 1959 to 1972, which included tail fins for aerodynamic stability. Though never officially designated as such (they were designated Peilstege, marking the end of the car in rear view mirror). The Fintail series replaced the Ponton series. This one is a fascinating, totally rust free 2-owner California black license plate Benz. It is the more desirable 230S model (like ours) with twin carbs and 120 hp. They made only 41,000 of these substantially fewer than the 220 and 220s. Okay so I’m not in love with the blue on blue but i could work with it. If it were mine I might paint the roof white like some of the rally cars of the period. But then the white walls and the 13″ wheels must go along with the wheel covers. Hold on a second. People probably love it the way it is! The interior looks immaculate and it still sports a Becker Grand Prix that is in working condition. Like all offerings from this seller, California Classix, it is beautifully presented.
The engine compartment looks fresh, and the driving shots instill confidence. We mark this one a must have and currently priced close to top of the market at $12,950. But there is a growing fan club for this model and good ones like this are hard to come by.
