White with light coloured cloth interior 118,000mls 4.5 litre V8 auto Placed in storage two years ago following the death of the previous elderly owner who was prominent motosport competitor from the 1960s to 1990s in vehicles a s varied as Fiat 600 & a Formula 1 Lotus! Mercedes believed last used for occasional European classic tours and maintained accordingly
Started first time when removed from storage (once battery charged) & shows no obvious problems driving and stopping as it should. Obviously - having been in storage - it would benefit from service/inspection/oil changes etc along with a clean & polish.
Will qualify for Historic Vehicle Status in April this year & so becomes exempt from tax & MOT requirements which makes it an attractive purchase for an enthusiast whoican run it on a Classic insurance policy at low cost ....apart from the fuel as it is likely to be quite greedy!
I have been encouraged by well known Classic Car Dealer to let him put it in his showroom priced at £12995 as he reckons he can sell it at that once washed & polished etc ....& that is what will happen if nobody here wants it
However - i'll sell it now as it is for £5500 but really don't want swaps/offers/ PMs/endless text conversations/ or messing about
If it tempts you please ring just 07703162409 anytime ........& please no good responding on here as i most likley wont see your queries
Photos show the car as it is today following removal from storage
Enjoy, if I'd have had a working tow car/timing was better over the last week or so I would have been straight up there with my trailer. Loved these for so long so a bit gutted i missed out but congrats, looks a stunner.
