This is my 1981 Mercedes-Benz 200 which has only covered a remarkably low 118,055 miles in 39 years. This is my first classic Merc, after owning plenty of classic VW’s and while she's quite a simple spec she's also absolutely brimming with character and charm.

She's comes with the unburstable 2.0-litre four cylinder engine, a manual gearbox, a Pioneer head unit (that you can also plug a smart phone into), the comfiest seats I've ever had in a car, and one of the largest history files I've ever seen (I could have taken dozens of pictures of it alone!). You can trace this car's story from new, and the first owner lived in Bournemouth and owned the car from 1981 until 2009 where he took meticulous care of it. The second owner fitted a replacement engine and then put a few more miles on her including adventures to Morocco and San Francisco, California! I bought her back in March and planned on enjoying her for quite a few years but an imminent house sale and redundancy means I've got to free up some funds.

Recent work in the past couple of years includes new fuel lines, new tyres and new brakes (calliper, pads, pipes). The MOT is due in December and she’s only covered 1600 miles since June 2019. I've always kept her nicely cleaned and polished and she always gets plenty of admiring looks when we're out for a weekend drive. When she’s not being driven she’s kept on a driveway under a nice posh car cover which is also included in the sale. The only points I was going to sort in the future was a very small ding on the near side front wing and a couple of rust bubbles on the same wing but it doesn't detract from the overall look of the car. The bootlid also has some scratches on it and could benefit from some paint at some point in the future. It's nothing major though, all part of her history, I'm just being honest.

The interior is in brilliant condition. There is a little bit of wear to the drivers seat backrest and a small burn mark on the rear bench but that's it. It even benefits from some updated Focal rear speakers which sound good.

Overall this is a fantastic, usable modern classic. The low mileage really shows in the smooth driving experience and there isn't a rattle or squeak to be heard inside. I'd love for her to go to a good home and if looked after you certainly wouldn't lose any money in depreciation as the values of clean W123s are only going up. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to get in contact.
