Road Tax Free – Whoopee!!!

On 1 April 2021 our 1980 280TE estate (known to many as The Ambulance) became officially entitled to Historic Vehicle status, qualifying for free road tax and MOT exemption. A couple of our collection are already road tax free, but it doesn’t dim the sense of satisfaction from walking into the Post Office and handing over the paperwork!

Pete and Ann on duty with the ambulance in 2008 at the Tatton Park MB Club stand – the first year they owned it.

Unlike our other Historic Vehicles (a W111 from 1970 and a W108 from 1972), the W123 was so far ahead of its time when new that even at 40 years old it is still what many people would consider to be a practical daily driver, in Summer at least. It really does not feel that old fashioned. Gaining the privilege of tax free motoring is therefore especially satisfying.

Having spent most of the last few years in storage, with only occasional outings, the car is already relishing its new freedom. It has been used most days since attaining its new status, and we fully intend it to form a regular part of our transport during Summers from now on, including participation in classic car tours.

Stock in Preparation, Coronavirus Precautions and Wheels for SaleUpdated 11 April 2021

Stock in Preparation

Due to various staffing and supply issues outside our control it is currently taking much longer to prepare cars, and as a result there are very few for sale on the website at present. Many cars are being reserved prior to being prepared for sale and selling before they are listed on the website. Models currently awaiting preparation but available for viewing are: R107 300SL roadster, R107 500SL roadster, W111 280SE 3.5 coupe, W115 230.4 saloon (LHD), W123 230CE coupe (SOLD), W123 280TE estate (RESERVED), W124 300TE estate, W124 230CE coupe, W124 300CE Coupe (ultra-low mileage), W124 E320 Sportline cabriolet, W124 E220 cabriolet. Any of them can be viewed and reserved pending preparation, and as soon as you have secured your chosen car by payment of a deposit it will be brought to the head of the queue for immediate attention.


Coronavirus Precautions

As from 12 April we are once again open for car viewings by appointment. We are applying full social distancing measures, with contact surfaces on cars being sanitised before and after viewings. Regrettably we cannot offer test drives until further notice.
