1982 Mercedes-Benz 200 Saloon W123
34,500 mile example; two owners from new; manual; fresh MOT; the nicest example
we have seen - by a long way
A regular on the show circuit around
the Shrewsbury area, this amazing W123 Mercedes has been with us for a few
weeks, and everyone who has clapped eyes on it has simply said "WOW"....it
really does look that good.
The 27 MOTs on file support
its 34,500 miles from new - (well the earliest MOT dates from 1991 by which
time it had covered 19,119 miles) and it has a current ticket to August 2022
with no advisories.
Two owners are listed on the V5C, the first buying
the car through Drayton Continental ltd in Shrewsbury, changing hands just once
again in 1992.
The book pack is complete, although the service book
doesn't carry any stamps beyond the initial PDI. The car has clearly been
loved and coddled all of its life and we wonder if the rear seats have actually
The exterior is 'box fresh' and shows no signs of wear that we
could see. It starts and runs as one would hope and there are a few invoices on
file relating to starter motor and immobiliser repairs. It also comes with a
workshop manual and a maintenance guide.
On offer from a deceased estate,
it really does look as good as the pictures suggest and we can't imagine there
is a better one out there, and if there is, it certainly wouldn't be on offer
with such an attractive estimate. Buy the very best!
