1974 Mercedes C107 450 SLC

United KingdomEnglandWesthoughton

Overview of this Mercedes

It is rare to find a car of this age with a fully documented history and all 3 owners were friends or family.

The coupe offers ample room to seat 4 adults comfortably and a large boot.  All windows drop fully and there is an electric sunroof, which create an ‘open’ feel when required.

The car is in very good condition, and has been kept as original as possible, notwithstanding essential maintenance or repairs.  It is very sound, good looking and an absolute pleasure to drive.

The car is registered as an historic vehicle so no road tax to pay and there is no requirement for MOT (although we have continued to do this).

Condition:

The car has a full MOT record from 1977 to date, the only gap is when it was stored for a short time by the first owner, all mileages are consistent with this The current MOT expires March 2023, no advisories.  The car was serviced in March 2022 and has been inspected (on ramps) on 1st August 2022 and a new battery fitted. There is a full service record. The body has had some welding and repairs done as necessary over the years (I have bills with details during my ownership and some from earlier).  The paintwork is very good with a nice finish, no rust spots. The rear window louvres are undamaged.  Some bumper sections have been replaced, there is a little spotting on some sections. The interior is also in very good condition.  The original leather seats show wear in line with the age of the car. The central locking. electric windows and sunroof are all in good working order but the electric aerial is not working.    

History:

The first owner was a friend of our family and enjoyed the car for 30 years.  My father bought the car in 2005 then it passed to me after his death in 2008.  Over the last 14 years it has mainly been used in the summer for going to car shows in the North West of England. Documents include original 1974 green logbook and warranty card , V5 showing change to age related number plate in 2002, MOTs from 1977 to date verify mileage, original maintenance booklet showing record of servicing plus some original sales leaflets.
