Lot 118-Mercedes 250SL “California” Automatic 1967
Estimated Value : £45,000 – £55,000
Having just come out of long term ownership this very pretty Mercedes 250SL has over time, undergone a long and expensive refit. The result is what you see today. A very very nice example of this much sought after model.
The paint was refreshed a few years back and still presents very well, the dark blue contrasting and complimenting the excellent red interior of the car. Exterior bright work, while being very good has one or two small areas of concern but nothing that detracts from the overall appearance, more something the vendor wanted to bring to perspective buyers attention and that “It is as good underneath as it is on top”, there is no rust present in the car.
Mechanically the car is very good in all areas. The engine was removed prior to the paintwork receiving attention then thoroughly detailed prior to refitting. The auto gearbox functions correctly. Currently the MOT has expired but considering it has only covered 400 miles since 2006 and in that time been mot’d 3 times, that should not present any problems.
Coming with the car is its hardtop plus service books, manuals and an MOT until May next year. A lovely car offered with a below market reserve.
