This vehicle has an original Mercedes-Benz Delivery Notice dated June 3rd of 1959. It was an original US-specification example ordered by IMA, the Belgian Mercedes-Benz importer. Original equipment included back-up lights, sealed beam headlamps, Michelin tires, and a Becker Mexico radio. During its earlier history, a Mercedes-Benz factory-supplied replacement engine, numbered 1097150, replaced the original unit. During 2000 it showed just 24,151 km on the odometer. It was at that time that it was entrusted to Paul Russell and Company of Essex, Massachusetts, who completely rebuilt the engine. Other work at the time included rebuilding of the fuel injection pump, generator, starter, and water pump. Additionally, the fuel tank along with its associated hoses and fuel pump, were restored, as was the radiator, while the coolant hoses were replaced. Since the time the work was completed, just under 1,200 additional kilometers have been travelled.

The car is finished in red with a tan interior and wears an older restoration.
