Mot expires April 19 and will be renewed before sale.

The signal red paintwork is in remarkable condition considering the car is nearly 40 years old. There is no corrosion or evidence of bubbling that can be seen. Only the odd very light scratch or stone chip are present.

The chrome bumpers/mirror housings are all shiny and corrosion free and the rubbing strips are in excellent order.

The painted steel wheel caps look stunning and suit the car so well.

The roof has possibly been replaced at some point purely because it looks 3 years old rather than 40 years old.

I don’t believe this car has been restored. There is no paperwork or evidence to support that but I am sure that some of the paintwork has been professionally refreshed at some point.

The beige plaid cloth upholstery and plastics are in excellent order as you will see from the photographs. Carpets and door cards are a delight and this cars interior is in such a good condition with very few age related marks or blemishes.

The wood veneers on the centre console are also in excellent order.

The switches and buttons are typically Mercedes engineered to a very high standard and all work as they should.

4 Speed Auto, Factory fitted hard top, Stereo system with AUX in, Central locking, PAS, Electric windows, Plaid cloth

upholstery with head rests, Halogen headlamps, Factory fire extinguisher, Heat insulating glass, Interior adjusting door mirrors.

This lovely car has been with me in storage for the past 12 months and has always started first time. With a smooth idle, engine and gearbox this car is a pleasure to drive.

The straight six cylinder engine produces 185 BHP and with Bosch K Jetronic fuel injection is brisk and reliable.

There are no known mechanical issues with this car.

A mechanical inspection is welcomed.
