Cheshire Classic Benz

Supplying the highest quality examples of classic Mercedes-Benz cars from the 1960s to 1990s

Reliability

Of course any car can develop faults, and it is natural to assume that an older car will have more than its fair share, but that’s not typically the case. One factor which helps redress the balance is that the older models are far less complex in design and have much less to go wrong in the way of electrical and electronic systems which can be the achilles heel of current models.

The recent obsession with weight saving and introduction of design complexity in the ceaseless quest for fuel economy and emissions reduction has also led to somewhat flimsy construction and the potential for premature failure in current models, even in prestige marques like Mercedes.

A well maintained twenty or thirty year old Mercedes feels just as smooth, quiet and safe as any nondescript current model, even with well over 100,000 miles on the clock. It is completely practical as an everyday car, or alternatively you can keep it as a weekend treat.

It does however sometimes come as a shock to those who haven’t yet experienced ownership of such beautiful cars that there are just as many neglected examples out there as there are pristine concours winners. It is strange but true that purchasers of expensive new Mercedes cars sometimes skimp on maintenance and repair. Our task is to find the right cars for those who can appreciate them, and help them enjoy the experience in the long term, both sensually and financially.

Stock in Preparation, Coronavirus Precautions and Wheels for SaleUpdated 18 June 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, W124 300TE estate, W124 230CE coupe, W124 300CE Coupe (ultra-low mileage), W124 E320 Sportline 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.
