Its rare that you get to see an elegant Mercedes like this on the road or in such original condition. This is a South African car that send the first 49 years of its life in the Highveld before being brought to the UK in 2016. This car is incredibly solid due to where it has spent most of its life and is in good condition though could certainly use some TLC. This is a four speed column shift manual car that is fully UK registered, running and driving with an MOT. That being said the engine could do with some tuning and the brakes don’t appear to be very good, so this car should certainly be considered a rolling restoration that could use some minor mechanical fettling before you take it out on the road. The car shows as having completed roughly 73,000 miles though we have no paperwork from its earlier life. This elegant old Mercedes is fifty years old and looking for a loving new home which will appreciate what a stunning car this is. It is also important to remember that W108s like this are incredibly rare to find and that prices are only going one way.
