- nice original Wabasto '4 fold' full sliding sun/moon roof in great material and operational condition
- seats are still comfortable and uniform but could use some reupholstering to be nice

- floors are good, drivers side has some sort of light wood floor piece that is old / crunchy and needs replacing under the original floor mat
- trunk is clean and in good shape complete with original spare tire / jack / tire iron, see pics
- door and trunk seals in fair shape
- tiny oil drip coming from the mid trans area
- clean under body and suspension components, see pics
- all 4 tires in good shape
- rear axle is 100% all rebuilt with a very clean installation down below from a well known local Mercedes mechanic, see pics
- gas tank has been removed, boiled out, double-dipped and exterior coated, see pics
- body is straight and 98% clean
- doors open and close nicely
- windows and door handles all operate smoothly
- we used to drive the 190 a few times per month and ran great, it has been sitting for a few months now and it tends to sputter and hesitate some.
it runs smoother with the choke slightly pulled on, I think the carb could use a cleaning/tune up?
- transmission and column shifts nice and clutch operates smooth
- the car steers nice and drives down the road smooth
- the 190 has nice original 'black on yellow' California plates. We have the front plate as well which goes with it and is in nice condition.
We run an original 'euro plate' up front though which gives it a nice unique European look. In the rear we run the nostalgic California plate
giving that vintage look and feel while being legal and registered to drive down the California roadways : )
please feel free to ask any questions and or request any pictures?
Looking for a good home for our Ponton 190 : )
