Yellow Submarine: 1968 Mercedes-Benz 250S W108

For better or worse the Mercedes-Benz W108 is on DT’s short list of good
classic sedans to own and drive.  Most W108s are somewhere between
minty clean museum pieces and mouse eaten piles of garbage — but today we’ve got an example of a decent driver for a nice price.  Find this 1968 Mercedes-Benz 250S W108 offered for $5,999 in SF Bay Area, CA via craigslist.

With a nicely revving 150 horsepower inline-6 under the hood, the 250S should be fast enough to keep up with traffic, but not particularly fast. But this is a great car for a leisurely Sunday morning drive.

The interior is a nice deep shade of brown, and it seems mostly in place, but it would have been really nice to see a manual gearbox shifter.
