With regrettable personal circumstances prevailing, I find myself having to sell my Mercedes 190. It is a wonderful example of the famous w201 model and will be greatly missed by me and my family.
The car is 30 years old in May but, despite this, has just 97,000 fully documented miles under its belt. The service history is comprehensive (I nervously say full and complete) with the initial order form present along with original MB correspondence and an A4 file full of invoices dating right back to 1989.
I bought this car rather than the countless other examples available at the time for three reasons. Firstly, it is ‘bone stock’. There are no electric windows to fail, no complicated yet primitive fuel injection to flummox you and no sunroof to cause corrosion issues. Secondly, the car has a rather interesting story. Whilst it was sold in the UK, it was purchased by a Lt Col Stephens of the British Army and was immediately shipped to Hannover, West Germany from Mercedes-Benz of Picadilly, London. Upon retirement, the owner drove the car home where he kept it (fastidiously) until his death 5 years ago. Thirdly, it has the wonderful medium red cloth interior and original Becker Radio/cassette deck within which are both rare and both delightful.
The car comes with all three keys, 10 months (advisory free) MOT, and a selection of service parts which will need to be used in the summer.
The car drives very well with no bumps, knocks or creaks. It pulls strongly and starts first time, every time.
There are 3 very small areas of paintwork that could be improved, but they have never bothered me sufficiently to address them. You may feel differently, but they don’t detract from the good looks or enjoyment of the car.
It is, genuinely, the best example I’ve personally experienced and - as suggested - is a very regrettable sale due to redundancy. Therefore, I politely ask you are respectful with regards to offers.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask me.
Payment will only be accepted in cash, the cash will be sterling and the notes will be English ones.
