One of the vehicle's main features is its refurbished dash board, which was professionally removed, lacquered, and reinstalled. I am not aware of any other W108 with such an incredible finish. The photos do not do this justice!
Thousands has been spent maintaining and improving the vehicle, the majority of which was undertaken by a highly respected garage in London, specialising in classic Mercedes. Invoices are available for inspection. The works include:
- Overhauling the rear brakes.
- Overhauling the steering box.
- Refurbishment of the fuel tank.
- New head gasket installed and associated works.
- Overhauling the radiator.
- Refurbishing the dash board.
- Renewing the exhaust system.
This is a beautiful and very reliable classic car that is appreciating rapidly. It could be used as a daily driver in my opinion. It has been permanently garaged in my ownership and was also garaged by the previous owner. I love the car and am reluctantly having to sell it as I have a young child and now have other time pressures.
