A Mercedes-Benz Fintail is a rare and elegant sight on our roads, and with a little work this car could make them just a little less rare. This is a South African car that spent the first 49 years of its life in the Highveld before being brought to the UK in 2016. The car is very solid and is in good condition though could certainly use some mechanical and cosmetic TLC . This is a four speed column shift manual car that is fully UK registered, but needs some work to be roadworthy. The engine could do with some tuning but we have replaced the brake master cylinder, fitted an electric fuel pump and completed and some other minor work, however the flywheel has sheared some teeth and this means that the car will not start. 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. The most pressing work needed to make the car roadworthy is the fitment of a new windscreen and a replacement exhaust, along with the aforementioned flywheel.
