Mercedes-Benz 450 SEL 6.9 | (199) Blue Black | Front and rear electric windows | Electric sunroof | Air-conditioning | Cruise control | Rear headrests | New Blaupunkt Amsterdam stereo
A very unique car to be part of someone's collection. Registered in October 1978 with six former keepers and over four years with the last owner. Recent works carried out with Mercedes-Benz of Gatwick to the sum of £10,000 including new correct-period Michelin tyres and costly self-level valve replacement. We, ourselves have invested a further £9,000 in service work, paintwork, full air conditioning overhaul and cosmetic enhancement.
The vehicle now is in a very nice running order and the investment made in all the correct areas to bring the vehicle in line for a collectable owner. Many receipts and bills are present from specialist repairers. MOT certificate followed by old tax discs. The vehicle was the personal car of a well known Mercedes-Benz enthusiast some years ago when there was a colour change from (172) Anthracite grey to (199) Blue/Black. The interior is of the charcoal velour which complements the car very nicely and reflects well the old School Mercedes days. Spare keys and Manuals are also present. The mileage carries 122,000 with MOT certificates clarifying the mileage.
A very discreet S class to own with a very special boot badge
Of course she’ll come with our unique 24 Months Major Mechanical Warranty, new MoT, Service and Pre Delivery Inspection and test.
