1968 Mercedes-Benz 230

Welcome to Down On The Street, where we admire old vehicles found parked on the streets of the Island That Rust Forgot: Alameda, California. We saw a pretty nice 1968 Mercedes-Benz 280SL about a month ago, so I figure it’s time for another ’68 Benz. This time, though, we’ll be looking at a solid-citizen sedan instead of a rakish roadster, with this 230 I found parked pretty close to the Evil ’77 Camaro.

Even though the 230 was one of the less expensive Mercedes-Benz machines in ’68, it was still quite expensive: $4,544. With a brand-new ’68 Chevelle SS396- which was about the same size as the 230- going for $2,899 and even the ’68 BMW 2002ti listed at $4,165, you had to be thinking long-term when you chose the Mercedes sedan.


This car is used for everyday transportation nowadays, 40 years and who knows how many Astronomical Units of travel later; the interior still looks pretty good.
