When you've been involved with these great cars as long as I have, you sometimes feel like you've seen them all, then once in a while something like this comes along and reminds me why I do, what I do.
Bought new in November 1985, by a doctor who always wanted a Mercedes and had reached a point in his life when he could eventually afford to treat himself to one, he bought this 190 brand new from a Mercedes dealership in Brussels, but to full UK specification; this was at a time when it was popular to by cars from the Benelux countries and Germany, when big savings could be made. He ordered the car in August, and took delivery in November 1985. He owned this car right up to his death in summer 2015, and I bought it from his son earlier this year. He told me this was his father's pride and joy for all that time, and it was reserved solely for special occasions and rarely used in the winter months, when it was kept garaged, away from the elements. As such, the car is in absolutely amazing (and totally un-restored) original condition.
Since I acquired the car earlier this year, and as it had done so few miles in the last few years, I have comprehensively re-commissioned it; to mention just a few items, the carburetor has been rebuilt with new seals, the braking system has been overhauled, all four five wheels have been refurbished, with new Firestone tyres fitted, the cooling system has been overhauled with many new parts fitted and all the fluids have been changed. The final spend on parts was just over £1000 and I've lost count of the hours I've spent on it, but have every single one of them; it's been such a joy to work on.
As such the car is in tip top condition and drives almost as you'd expect a new W201 to drive, and its difficult to believe its almost 31 years old, and is ready to be shown, as I feel this is a real piece of Mercedes history that needs to be preserved as the W201's standing as a bona-fida classic continues to increase. The best examples, like this one will be the most sought after and values will rise accordingly.
So, if you're looking for one of the best, very early W201's with quite a unique specification, then I don't think you'll find a better one than this; it truly is a one off among W201's!.
THE MTSV DIFFERENCE
Unlike some, I don’t just simply go out, buy any old car, give it a good clean, then advertise it for more than the purchase price, disregarding any issues the car may have in the hope the new buyer won’t notice…I just couldn’t do that. The cars I source are carefully selected and I work very hard so that when my cars leave me, I have the satisfaction of knowing they are as good as they possibly can be within the constraints I have. As such I have many repeat customers and new customers that have been recommended via word of mouth…the ultimate accolade for anyone in business. To read more, see my website at http://www.mtsv.co.uk

Finally, I'm situated in Keighley, West Yorkshire (Postal Code Area BD21) which is approximately 11 miles from Skipton, and 20 miles West of Leeds.
