Finished in 735 Astral Silver with pristine Charcoal cloth, this 230E was supplied new by County Garages, Gloucester, purchased "for best" by a farmer to use solely on high days and holidays. Now some thirty years on, she's still only covered a mere 46K miles, and comes with the a full Mercedes service history, which demonstrates the car has been correctly maintained. This is beautiful and completely unmolested example, and retains many of the feature most vehicles of this age lost years ago. I've said for some time now that these late pre-facelift W124's are by far the best in terms of quality, and this car is certainly testament to that.
Finished in the beautiful 568 Signal Red with Oxblood Check interior, all in pristine condition, this car has been cherished by its 3 previous owners, and is probably in better condition than most cars a fraction of its age. It also has a very rare basics specification; I think the original buyer took a "less is more " approach when he ordered this car, however it was a very inspired choice as it's now the ultimate apocalypse car, with not one single ECU in sight and no complex electrics to go wrong.
In Pristine 744 Brilliant Silver with Orion Grey Leather. Many will remember this car from when it was exhibited at the 2017 Classic Car Show at the NEC, where it attracted much attention. This is really is about as good as it gets; a highly sought after 190E 2.6 Sportline, that has essentially rebuilt to a concours standard.

about this section....
All vehicles listed here are (unless otherwise stated) physically in my possession and are in various stages of preparation. The ones at the top of the page, with photographs are imminent, whilst the ones at the bottom of the page may be some time yet.
As always, my aim is to I get my cars as good as I possibly can within the constraints I have, so its not unusual for some of my vehicles to spend a few months or longer in preparation, until I'm 100% happy they're ready to go. Incidentally, preparation goes far deeper than just a wash and polish. For me its much more involved than that, and a process that will hopefully ensure continued trouble free ownership.

Very high specification includes climate control with AC, electric memory seats, double glazing, soft close doors and boot, electric rear blind, electric sunroof, electric folding mirrors etc the list is endless.

1997 Fiat Punto 1.2 16v ELX Bertone Cabrio
44K Miles - FSH - Very Rare
Finished in white with blue interior. This now very rare (only 17 left according to howmanyleft.com) Punto Bertone Cabrio, is a full four seat convertible and is an absolute hoot to drive. It features electric windows x 4, central locking, power hood, fold through rear seats and power steering. Bodywork is superb, with non of the usual rust associated with older Fiats. These little four seater convertibles were exclusively built in the Bertone factory, so are bound to be a sure fire future classic . I've also just replaced the Timing belt and water pump, along with the exhaust system, as well as having a full service carried out, so the new owner can enjoy this car with extra peace of mind.

1 Owner - Very Low Mileage- One of The Last W201's
Registered in August 1993, this is one of the last W201's to roll off the production line. Finished 904 Midnight Blue with Mushroom Cloth, this immaculate W201 was bought new from Road Range Mercedes Liverpool by its only owner as a present to himself, and subsequently used just for high days and holidays, being kept garaged when not in use. As such, its in incredible condition, both on top and underneath and only having covered 35K miles with a superb history, there cant be many examples as original and untouched as this beautiful car.
1994 Mercedes W202 C180 Elegance Auto
Just 40K Miles - MBSH - Rare Blue MB Tex
Stunning, and quite rare colour combination of white with Blue MB-Tex interior. In beautiful condition with none of the rust issues found on later C-Classes. These very early W202's inherited many of the attributes of it's now legendary forerunner, the W201 190, so still have that unmistakable quality feel about them. Excellent specification includes full MB Tex interior (one of the hardest wearing substance known to man!), electrically adjusting seats, all electrics including sunroof and newly refurbished alloys. Originally bought as a retirement present, this very low mileage vehicle stayed with the same family for the first 18 years of its life.

1981 Mercedes W126 500SEL Auto
63K Miles - FSH (36 Stamps) - Simply Stunning.
One of the best, and earliest examples of what is generally regarded as the best incarnation of the S-Class. Finished in beautiful 480 Manganese (Bronze) metallic with pristine 234 Palomino leather, this really is an incredibly well preserved example. She's covered just 63,000 miles, and comes with a full, and extensive MB service history, the service book contains an impressive 36 stamps. Excellent specification includes cruise control, climate control with working AC, heated seats, original Blaupunkt radio; everything works as it did, the day it left the factory back in 1981.
1992 Mercedes R129 300SL Auto
43K Miles- Magazine Featured - Colossal History
Finished in 735 Astral Silver with Blue leather. An absolutely pristine example, that was recently the subject of a six page feature in Modern Classics Magazine. Specification, in addition to usual R129 refinements, includes Electric seats, Leather, AC, Cruise, and of course Hardtop. Being a 1992 vehicle, with the legendary M103 straight six, it hails from the era where MB build quality was at its absolute pinnacle. I've always said if you're going to buy an R129 either go for a "hewn from granite" early model, like this one, or a late post '98 version.
2008 Mercedes W251 R320-L CDI 4-Matic Auto
95K Miles - FSH - Very High Spec
Finished in 775 Iridium Silver with Black Alcantara. The W251 R-Class is a simply amazing, unique and very underrated vehicle, and one of those cars you didn't know you needed, until you owned one (this has been my car since January). What other car is capable of almost 150mph, seats 7 Adults (and luggage) in safety and comfort, with the two rows of rear seats folded its more cavernous than some vans, has 4-wheel drive capabilities, yet still returns 40mpg, with more on a run?. This has to be one of the most comfortable, capable and versatile cars I've ever driven, and had quite a hefty price tag when new. Very high specification includes all usual electrics, Command Sat Nav, PDC, Climate with AC, Cruise with Speed Limiter, Multifunction Steering Wheel, Auto Lights, Auto Wipers etc, etc. This is also a very well sorted example too, with the problem areas having been addressed.
