It is very unusual these days to find W124 coupes which have been as well cared for as this one. Even the latest ones are now 20 years old, and the majority have been used quite intensively over high annual mileages for most of their lives. This one looks beautiful in the classic silver paint scheme with grey lower panels, and is further enhanced by the gorgeous blue leather interior. It is in lovely condition throughout and wants for nothing.
It was supplied new by Speeds Mercedes-Benz of Chesterfield in March 1996 to a local owner who kept it for two years and covered 38,000 miles. It then went to a lady in Whitchurch, Shropshire, via Hills Mercedes-Benz of Shrewsbury. She and her husband kept it for 16 years until 2014, taking the mileage up to 74,000, at which point we supplied it to a hotelier in Chester. He kept it for less than a year as he found he needed a four door car, so we took it back in part-exchange and sold it to a gentleman in Dumfries who has owned it until now. He has only relinquished it due to lack of use, having only covered around 4,000 miles in two years.
With the first owner it was serviced exclusively by the supplying dealer, with five of their stamps in the book. There are then three stamps from Hills of Shrewsbury, three from a Honda dealer in Nantwich (who serviced the owner’s other car), four from a trusted local garage in Whitchurch, two from an independent MB specialist in Shropshire and one from an independent MB specialist near Glasgow. We will bring the servicing right up to date before sale, even though it has only covered just over 1,000 miles since its last service, so it will be ready for a further 9,000 miles before any scheduled attention is due. As well as the above documentation we also have on file every MOT certificate since the car was new.
Whether the new owner chooses to use it sparingly as a daily driver or campaign it on the concours show circuit, it will be an appreciating asset and will give many years of satisfying ownership, far in excess of its modest purchase price.
We have carried out a comprehensive mechanical check of the car in our own workshop. Any faults found have been remedied, and any required maintenance has been carried out. A schedule of this work will be supplied with the car, along with our own warranty, details of which can be supplied on request.
