This magnificent W111 Coupe is in quite remarkable condition and has only covered less than 80.000 miles since new
The first owner kept her until 1982 and all original instruction manuals and service voucher booklet are kept within the history folder to confirm the usage and mileage at that time
Since then the service work have all been carried out by our chum Steve Redfearn from Wimbledon - ie 35 years of continual maintenance
The 3rd owner purchased her in 1994 and again Steve was requested to continue to look after her and he kept her for a further 10 years where upon owner number 2 brought her back again!!
She has hardly been used in this time, although regular repairs and updates have been continued as was he previously maintenance policy - even another check over this Autumn, just for good order
In more recent times she has benefited from a full engine rebuild, an upgraded air conditioning compressor and the interior has been refreshed with new hides for the front seats
The rear seats and all door cards did not require any attention as they are in more than fine condition
The paintwork was refreshed in the early 1990's and the chrome is almost perfect - save for a couple of marks to the bumpers
Originally supplied by Mercedes Benz to the original owner in Germany she was specified with nearly ever extra available, other than electric windows
Metallic paint work (champagne metallic), black leather interior, metal sunroof, automatic transmission, power steering, air conditioning by Behr & sundym glass were ticked on the option list - we've known a W111 coupe with 6 cylinders with such a specification before
Even a new Rolls-Royce didn't have all of these options when new in 1965 when this car was built
We have had a few of these luxurious coupes over the years and this must be as good as you can find anywhere
This 1963 Mercedes-Benz 220SE Cabriolet is an excellent original car that could use minor cosmetics. Black with tan interior and a manual gearbox. Mechanically sound. The bumpers need to be re-chromed.....
One of the very fist deliveries of the series...out of a well known collection. First registration october 17th, 1951 to Feldmühle papermaking pulp factory near Bielefeld, germany... only 3 owners.....
