A very rare opportunity to purchase a unique and original Classic car with great restoration and excellent condition.
This Mercedes-Benz 250 saloon is a great example of the W114 series, which epitomises a period of uncompromising quality for the luxury German marque. Understated but stylish, this original right-hand-drive example looks fresh following a sympathetic restoration. It is powered by a 2.5-litre straight-six petrol engine, coupled to four-speed automatic gearbox. The odometer shows around 49,250 miles.
First registered in April 1972, with just a 3 owners. Has a folder full of bills and sales receipts for part and services and restorations as well as old mot certificates and restoration bills.
The white paintwork is described as being in excellent following a full-body respray. Detailed inspection shows excellent attention to detail in the restoration with bright chrome across the bodywork contrasting with the deep shine of the new paint. Its wheel trims present as smartly as the rest of the exterior with white painted centres set against the polished outer rims. Photos of the engine bay and underside in the photo gallery provide further evidence of the quality of the restoration work.
The classic red interior contrasts beautifully with the exterior coachwork. This vinyl trim is believed to be original, and is in good condition. Fitted with a modern CD stereo head unit, the rest of the switches and controls remain in good working order.
The last service was recently carried out, with an oil and filter change as well as new front brake pads.

Fresh from a restoration of the body and paintwork, as well as some evident attention to the mechanicals, this beautiful Mercedes-Benz 250 AUTOMATIC saloon is a fitting testament to the marque’s superb build quality and legendary engineering.
