The retro styling of this 1985 gray station wagon with black cloth interiors makes us think it's possible for a family car to be cool. The five-speed manual transmission auto is for sale at Mercedes Motoring, price to be determined.
Original details are a hallmark of Mercedes Motoring vehicles. It also offers accessories like these custom seagrass floormats.
Status rides are everywhere in this town. And the most discerning connoisseurs opt for the rarest of the rare: a vintage auto. No longer just the pastime of some guy tinkering in his Valley driveway, we’ve noticed they’re the wheels of choice for well-heeled, design-conscious women.
But how do you score your own retro ride? The easiest way is through Mercedes Motoring. This Glendale company specializes in restoring vintage Mercedes to mint condition inside and out, so you’re sure to get a reliable as well as great-looking car.
You can search Mercedes Motoring’s website for an already restored model or describe your dream ride (gasoline or diesel? station wagon or sedan? any color preferences?) to a staffer. These “Mercedes whisperers” will pore over national Craigslist entries and reach out to long-cultivated connections for a car you’ll love.
Sure, you might have to wait a few months for your car to be road-ready, but for the sort of envious looks you’ll get on the 101, it’s worth it.
