Model history

  • The Mercedes-Benz W114, introduced in 1968 as a continuation of the W110 series, set new standards in the upper mid-size class. The models in this series were equipped exclusively with in-line six-cylinder engines with displacements ranging from 2.3 to 2.8 liters. The wide choice of engines gave the W114 not only high performance, but also a reputation for reliability and durability. This laid the foundation for the later success of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

    Wie ist der Zustand des Lack zu beurteilen? Sieht auf den Bildern teilweise unsauber lackiert aus. Wie schaut es mit Spachtel oder Rost unter dem Lack aus und wurde der Wagen in Deutschland oder den USA lackiert? Original Farbe ab Werk Königsblau?

      Hallo, das Lackbild ist insgesamt richtig gut und schön anzuschauen . Lediglich auf der Haube ist ein Unebenheit zu erkennen und hinten links am Radkasten, beide ca 3-4 cm. Das Coupé wurde in den USA lackiert, es gibt darüber aber keine Unterlagen. Insofern kann ich nur mutmaßen, dass die Originalfarbe ggf. früher nicht blau war. Viele Grüße
