As close to the original as you could find - this complete cracker is more than stunning

My dear father had one in period as his everyday smoke - similar colours, although he had chosen to paint the hard top and wheel discs in black

Anyhow, I digress - driving this one brings back some lovely memories as she feels akin to a new car, rather than a 50 year old second hand car

Raspy exhaust note, smooth suspension and steering too - everything works smoothly actually - window winders, door locks, heater control (normally stuck in one position, or at least difficult to operate........), soft top operation is an easy task for one person, doors open and close with that solid thunk, seats glide in their runners etc etc

There a Becker Mexico Retro unit fitted with blue tooth for phone, Sat/Nav. iPod / phone connection for music etc

Even the instruments have been sent to Germany for complete overhaul - a real attempt to ensure this car is as good as it could ever be

Purchased a few years ago from our friends at Silver Arrows, as a very good usable car after a couple of years the owner decided to check the sills and other underside areas

Now we all know what happened next - so a few areas of concern around the floor pan became a fully fledged "rotisserie restoration"

Completed in early 2019, with a full file of invoices (totalling £ 281,072:00) plus the cost of the car in the first place

Hence, as we've said, coming across another in such complete condition would be difficult, maybe impossible

The photo's do help but a real inspection would be suggested, to validate the quality of this pretty little Merc
