I’m only selling “Beryl” because my Porsche 911 is currently having an engine rebuild and I have an eye watering bill looming. I bought the car from Kensington last year with the intention of using it as a daily driver and slowly restoring it. So far I have sourced and repaired the headlamp wash/wiper and blades, sourced replacement door sill metal strips, had the driver’s door window motor refurbished (Mercedes regulator present and included), and had the brake fluid and drive belt tensioner changed. The car drives beautifully and has very low mileage, it was barely used for many years by its elderly former owner. Unfortunately he also managed to add the odd scratch and ding, this is not a show car and is priced accordingly. I’m in the MB Owner’s club and long term I would have looked to have a partial or full respray to bring it back to its former glory. The W124 is recognized as one of the last great Mercedes models and is one of the last modern classic bargains. I have found the 4 cylinder to be smooth, quiet and frugal.
I took the car to respected independent specialist, Stevenson’s of Larkfield and had the car assessed after I bought it. Steve worked on them on new and went over it with his team for an hour. It was declared to be very original, a great buy and in remarkable structural condition as many that he sees can look good outside but are shot within.
The n/s front wing needs replacing as it has rust, these are available from Mercedes for £180 or £50-75 from aftermarket suppliers. The aerial motor has just stopped working, these are £25-30 but I listen to my old tapes on the Blaupunkt Verona cassette. The interior is in a great retro Sport Check cloth which is in superb condition apart from the driver’s seat bolster which is has rub damage, this can be repaired by D Class who stock original material.
This is a solid, usable classic car that is perfectly capable of keeping up with modern traffic and being used every day. I am not asking a lot for it, I hope that the next owner will appreciate its potential and continue to give it the tlc it deserves.
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.....
