This lovely vehicle was supplied new by London Road Garage of Romford to a local lady in March 1989, only a few months before production of this model ended. She kept it for six years, covering around 28,000 miles. In 1995 she passed it on to a lady in Orpington, Kent, who kept it for two years and only added another 4,000 miles to the tally. In 1997 it went to a gentleman in Westerham, Kent, and he kept it for 18 years during which time he covered 67,000 miles. In November 2015 we were fortunate enough to acquire it and we supplied it to a restorer of classic Sunbeam cars who lives in Ormskirk. He has thoroughly enjoyed owning it, depite only covering 4,000 miles during his period of ownership, but is now reducing his collection so it is once again available to a new owner.

It has been serviced at least once a year for almost the whole of its life, and there are a remarkable 33 entries in the service book (and on the continuation sheet from when it became full). 23 are from Mercedes dealers (including 10 from the original supplying dealer), four from independent MB specialists and the remainder from non-franchised garages. We have almost all of the service and repair invoices on file, showing that no expense has been spared in its maintenance, along with every old MoT certificate since the car was three years old. We will service it before handover to its new owner, so it will be ready for a further 6,000 miles before any scheduled attention is needed.

The car has been cherished by each of its owners, and it is in superb condition throughout. It is a delight to drive and it looks and feels like a much younger car.

Values of this model have been climbing steadily over recent years as a knock-on effect of the meteoric rise in prices of the earlier Pagoda model, and they show no sign of abating. Superb examples such as this one can therefore be thought of as a sound investment which is also a lovely thing to own and use.

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 (see above). A schedule of this work will be supplied with the car, along with our own warranty, details of which can be supplied on request.
