Originally supplied by Portfield Mercedes of Chichester, and still carrying its original dealer window sticker, this car has lived the majority of its life in the milder climate of Hampshire, in the ownership of a mature gentleman, who kept this car almost 26 years, cosseting throughout his ownership, and ensuring it was garaged every night. Now, some 28 years on, this beautiful vehicle is totally standard, even down to the original Blaupunkt Melbourne Radio/Cassette. No alarms, after market security systems etc have ever been fitted either, so the wiring/trim remains un-tampered with.
I bought this car from a club member and enthusiast who is very particular about his vehicles, and who had bought it from its original owner in 2014. However recent surgery on a long standing back injury meant he could no longer continue to enjoy the car, so he very reluctantly took the decision to sell. Having seen this car when bought a 190E 2.6 from him two years ago, I asked him then, if he ever wanted to sell, I would have, especially knowing how well he treats his vehicles. That was last month, after which I drove it nearly 300 miles home, and it was an absolute pleasure in every way; what other 28 year old car could handle a trip like that with such nonchalant ease!.
The original book pack is still with the vehicle and contains the all important stamped up service book. There's also a large separate A4 file contains lots of supporting invoices, including old MOT certificates, old tax discs, invoices and other relevant paperwork. Two original keys are also supplied with the vehicle.
It's extremely rare to find a genuine low mileage six-cylinder W124, as most of these Autobahn stormers were bought for that very reason, hence most examples have clocked up inter-galactic mileages, which is widely accepted they're well capable of. With that in mind at a mere 60,000 very well looked after miles, this car is hardly run in. The very durable nature of these seemingly indestructible cars also tends to invite neglect from penny pinching owners who just drive and drive them, so it's a real bonus when you come across a genuine cosseted example like this
So, in summary, all in all, this is probably one of the very best W124 saloons you'll find. Although it doesn't have loads of gadgets, what it has got is very useful and works, and it's that simplicity and sheer untouched originality that drew me towards this car, along with its stunning condition.
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
Any other questions, please feel free to contact me at [email protected] or on 07976 280738. I'm a firstly and foremostly a true car enthusiast of many years, and a Mercedes Club Member, so it's a pleasure to meet and speak to like-minded people.
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.
