Enjoyment of your classic Mercedes doesn’t simply depend upon mechanical performance. An all-round enjoyment experience is reliant upon a comfortable, functional and lively interior that looks just, smells and feels just as good as the exterior. Beyond enjoyment is the value of your vehicle. A classic Mercedes-Benz with a beautiful and complete interior is one that is more likely to hold, if not exceed its value.
SIGNS OF A WORN-OUT INTERIOR
You could have cracked or ripped leather, stained or discoloured cloth. The form of your seats could have deteriorated, with little support offered by the base or back – this is particularly damaging to your posture and can make longer drives a chore. Carpets could be stained and riddled with contaminants that are both unhygienic and invisible to the eye.
Beyond the soft materials in your cabin, are the hard woods and composites used by Mercedes-Benz in the seventies and eighties. The dashboard and centre console could be cracked, or the wood could be lifeless.
