Quentin Tips the R107 SL for Greatness
In the May 2014 issue of Classic Cars magazine, Quentin Willson nominates five cars as his Smart Buys of 2014, i.e. those that are set to rise dramatically in value due to market conditions. All candidates must have three virtues to be eligible: driving ability, image and looks. The R107 has them all in abundance, and needless to say comes out as one of the chosen five.
Read why in the full article on P54 of the magazine – and see our advert on P184.
We specialise in supplying the highest quality examples of the rarer classic Mercedes-Benz models from the 1960s to 1990s. Click HERE to see our current stock.
We service and repair Mercedes cars of any age at our fully equipped workshop in Macclesfield, Cheshire. Click HERE for details.
We only sell cars which have been well cared for and sympathetically used, which means we inspect a lot and only buy a few. Every car we sell is subjected to an HPI check and a full mechanical check in our own workshop. Any significant faults found are rectified and worn parts replaced. A schedule of the mechanical work carried out is supplied with the car, along with our own warranty. See Our Standards for further details.
The Cars We Sell
Our favoured models are those from the 1980s and 1990s, a period which for various reasons saw a pinnacle of design and build quality for Mercedes-Benz (click HERE for an explanation). They include the beautiful W124 E Class coupes, cabriolets, saloons and estates; the gorgeous R107 and R129 SL roadsters; the charming W123 saloons, coupes and estates; the handsome W126 and W140 S Class saloons and coupes; and the smaller but just as perfectly formed 190E saloons. We are passionate about these cars, and we hope you will be too. If the model designation codes are still confusing you then look at our page entitled The models in detail and the mystery will be unravelled.
We also have a great regard for the Mercedes models from the 1960s and 1970s, and when we can find examples in the best condition we have great pleasure in offering them for sale to discerning enthusiasts.
Occasionally we feature models from the years 2000 and later, but only when we can find truly exceptional examples which, through sparing use and sympathetic ownership, have avoided the quality issues which tend to beset the more recent cars.
As well as our stock for sale we also own a representative selection of the above model types in our long term personal collection. We drive these cars year-round as our daily transport (only in good weather for the older ones where possible), which we feel is essential in order to appreciate and recognise the qualities which separate good from bad in the cars we offer for sale.
