Mercedes Benz 280SL Auto 1971 The Pagoda Mercedes Benz is an Icon of Classic Motoring. Its stunning looks have made it so since launch in 1963 at the Geneva Motor Show. The model ran until 1971 when it was replaced by the 107 Series SL which was a much larger car. The car we offer for sale here is simply stunning, and is about as near to new as any car could be. Finished in Red with a pale grey leather interior, it’s just out of a massive three year restoration at one of the Country’s leading Mercedes Specialists. Three years is a long time for any restoration, and this car which began its life in the USA was remarkably rot free before work started, however it was stripped mechanically, and taken back to bare metal for a total nut and bolt rebuild. To say this car looks like it’s just left the factory in Stuttgart is almost an understatement. The photographs say more than words ever can as the car is totally stunning. Nothing has been left to chance. The interior, the engine bay, the underside looks brand new, and the paint finish…… I think it’s the best finish I've ever seen. The chrome, what hasn’t been replaced has been re-chromed to the highest standard. The hard top has been fully restored. The Hood is new. Carpets, again all new. I doubt there is a better Pagoda for sale anywhere right now, and at only £99,950 has excellent potential for the future. If you are seeking a Pagoda, either to use or as a serious investment then you must not miss this car. It truly is an absolutely stunning example of the Marque.
One Man’s Passion ! The 107 Series of Mercedes fabled SL’s has always had a good following. Early in their lives they were the chosen vehicle of celebrities the world over and yet were still reasonably affordable. They came with a huge variety of power units from 2.8 litre 280’s up to the 5.6 litre 560’s, so there was something for everyone. But not quite…………………………… The SL we offer for sale here belonged to a personal friend of mine, and he wanted a car suitable for long distance continental touring. He wanted power, ease of use, and economy. So what did he do? He fitted a 3.0 Litre Mercedes Turbo Diesel power unit along with a Getrag 5 Speed Manual Gearbox, and rebuilt and adjusted the whole car to suit his needs and preferences. The Bills and invoices for parts alone total over £15000 The whole car is stunning. Finished in a Dark Silver Metallic, it comes with a Navy Blue full leather interior. Every part of the interior was re-trimmed by a company called Transcal who specialise in aircraft interiors. The quality of their work has to be seen to be believed. It took the owner some time to find a car that was good enough for him to begin with, looking at many of this model until he found a suitable car without the dreaded corrosion that can affect this model. He paid specific attention to the bulkhead which is notorious for serious corrosion, and this car fitted the bill as the bulkhead was sound . He then went to great pains to ensure this area of the car was protected from future corrosion with attention to drainage channels and protection with rust prevention. The engine bay looks like the whole power unit was fitted by Mercedes Benz factory workers in Stuttgart. The quality of the installation really is that good. Every single item under the bonnet and under the car was stripped back, cleaned, and refinished to an amazingly high standard. Nothing was left to chance. Even the nuts and bolts and other fixings have been stripped cleaned and anodised, such that the car looks like new mechanically. Bodily the car is stunning with an excellent paint finish and is virtually unmarked. Wheels are fitted with 15” Disc Wheel trims and again these are unmarked, and the chrome, which is never a strong point of Mercedes SL’s looks like new. Now I've had a number of these SL’s both personally, and also through the business and I know very well how they drive. But honestly, this car is in a completely different league. I’ve never EVER driven one of these that handles like this car does. Its crisp, it handles really tightly, it doesn’t feel light and floaty. It gives the most amazing feeling of being sure footed and confident. It feels far more like a Sports car than any other SL I’ve ever driven. It’s simply stunning. Now this car isn’t for the purist. Yes originality is everything to some, but the gentleman who made this car what it is did so for a reason. He built it for Continental Touring and that’s what the car has done. It met his criteria perfectly, and did the job perfectly for him. So ask yourself this. Would you like a completely unique Mercedes SL. Do you have your own diesel tanks? Or would you like to do some Continental Touring just as its previous owner? This car is completely unique. I doubt there is any other SL for Sale now like this, and certainly not in the condition this one is in. So why not get in touch. Call me on 01200 446893.

Lotus Elan Sprint 1973 The Sprint was the last version of Colin Chapman’s fabled Elan sold between 1971 and 1973, following the Series 1, 2, 3 and 4. Essentially, the Sprint was an up rated S4, fitted with a more powerful version of the Lotus twin cam engine. Though there are some who see the Sprint as a tuned S4, there is no doubt that Lotus intended it to be a separate version of the Elan (an “S5” in effect) and that it was marketed as such. The Sprint has become one of the more sought after Elan types and they are relatively few in number. This particular car is believed to be the very last Sprint Drop Head Coupe built by the Factory according to Graham Arnold of the Lotus Elan Sprint Register. It’s finished in Carnival Red over Cirrus White with a black leather interior, and fitted true Minilite Wheels not look alike and a new hood. The car is in simply stunning condition having had thousands of pounds spent on a full interior, exterior and mechanical refurb in 2014, and its covered a mere 700 miles since. The paint finish is the finest I’ve ever seen on a Glass fibre body. (The paint work alone cost almost £8000) The history file is huge, and dates right back to 1974. In total the car has covered only 33000 miles from new and as I mentioned previously has covered a mere 700 miles since being rebuilt. This car has had simply the best maintenance programme of just about any car we’ve ever had. If you are looking for a Lotus Elan Sprint, then this car has to be the prize find of the year. It’s condition, It’s history, and the fact it’s believed to be the last DHC made makes it a unique car, and one certain to be an excellent investment over the coming years. Buy it now at only £49995.
