Description

This is a great example of a Farland Classic Car, something that over the past 60 years has become a member of the family. This 1970 classic Mercedes-Benz has lived a long, luxurious life with the original owners' family up in Aspen., Colorado.

Initially, this car came to us for mechanical work, as the owner noticed a bit of "metal sounds" during the last startup. Once we got our eyes on the car we also noted a few issues in the paintwork and a few areas of rust near the trunk seal. This conversation with the family helped them to decide to get a bit deeper into the restoration realm. Now the car has come out of media blasting as we removed the old paint to get into bodywork. We'll continue to keep you up to date on this four-seater Cabrio classic!
