1974 Mercedes-Benz W115 230 Saloon with Blue Leather

Blue with Blue Leather / 230 Saloon


Principal Facts:

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 W115 brochure detailing the range.

Simply outstanding.

I have followed SLSHOP with interest for some years now and recently took the plunge and purchased my dream car – they did not disappoint!
The whole experience from start to finish was superb. Their communication was excellent and they kept me
informed every step of the way. Thank you and I look forward to my next purchase!

I have just purchased a 280SL from SLSHOP. I have already purchased several parts from SLSHOP and have found all members of staff most helpful and it is more like dealing with a club than a commercial enterprise I would highly recommend using SLSHOP for cars, parts and most importantly impartial advice.

They put up with my indecision, inexperience and last minute demands and my car is the best thing I’ve ever bought. The most impressive thing about them is the after care though. Nothing is ever too much trouble and they’ve given me the best advice to make sure I get the most out of my car. Can you tell I’m obsessed with them all?
