About This Car

1974 Mercedes-Benz 230 Saloon

Blue Grey (166) with Blue MB Tex (172)

33,457 miles

Four speed manual gearbox

This incredible time warp car is in completely original condition, showing just over 33,000 miles from new. Offered on behalf on one of our customers, Sales Director Bruce Greetham remembers being impressed by this car at concours events over 15 years ago.

All original, never painted and with an interior that looks as if it has never been used, this is an automotive museum piece about which the owner proudly states that ‘the only place you will see a better example is in the Mercedes-Benz museum’.

This car has been Zeibart treated from new and Waxoyled since. Being a no power steering car with a manual gearbox makes this a very rare find indeed, as close as one could get to buying a brand new W115 from Sindelfingen back in 1974.

Present with the car is a fully stamped Mercedes-Benz service book, a variety of receipts and invoices detailing a lifetime of care and an original W114 brochure detailing the range.

Simply outstanding.

Bulkhead Corrosion

Although the R107 is renowned for build quality, there is one chink in the armour – the bulkhead. Many cars that present well from the outside are hiding internal rust. Water from outside the car should drain out through specially designed channels, but over time, these become blocked forcing water inside the car. Once water has breached the blower motor cover in front of the windscreen, it slowly wreaks havoc from inside out. This delicate area did not have rust protection from the factory, and as the metal deteriorates it the water ingress can lead to faulty electrics, damp carpets and musty smells inside the cabin.

All our cars come with a 36 month bulkhead warranty.

SLSHOP Unique 2 & 3 year warranty
