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.

Coronavirus Precautions etc.Updated 22 January 2021

In line with UK Government instructions we are currently closed to visitors until further notice. We are however contactable by phone and email during normal business hours.

We are still selling cars during lockdown, and as well as our legendary ultra-detailed website descriptions and multiple photos we are now working to provide a no-nonsense 'warts and all' walk-round video for each car. In recent months these videos have given many customers the confidence to purchase cars without actually seeing them 'in the metal'. We are happy to store your purchase free of charge until such time as it is permissible to collect it.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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. Models currently awaiting preparation but available for inspection are: R107 300SL roadster, W111 280SE 3.5 coupe, W123 230CE coupe, W123 280TE estate, W124 E320 estate, W124 300TE estate, W124 230TE estate, W124 230CE coupe, W124 E220 cabriolet, W126 500SEL saloon and W201 190E 2.5-16 saloon. Any of them can be 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.
