Classic Car Auctions says:

One registered keeper and just 75,305 miles from new...A delightful 1981 Mercedes 230 CE Coupé presented in Metallic Blue with a Cream Velour interior. This original, UK supplied right-hand drive car was first registered in March 1981 and is supported by a service history showing 17 stamps. The specification includes power steering. electric windows, electric sunroof, alloy wheels, and a period radio/cassette. This charming 230CE was with its one owner for 35 years and it appears to have been maintained and cherished from the day it arrived, our vendor has owned it for some eight months but hasn't registered it.  These elegant coupés were amongst the most desirable on the market when new, and although Mercedes saloons from the period look a touch square now, this lovely coupé still looks sleek. A real treat and not to be missed.
