Lot 185 – Mercedes CL420 1998
Estimated Value : £4,000 to £7,000
Wow! A truly beautiful example of Mercedes flagship of the time their 420CL Coupe. As you can see by the pictures it really is in very good condition on the body, very few marks to talk of, obviously there are a couple as it is nearly 20 years old and has not lived in a bubble, but nothing to worry about.
Interior is great with even the “Butler Belts” still working (get in and the car passes you your seat belt over your shoulder) and the original car phone is still there. The leather and woods is in very good condition with just the slightest signs of ageing on the seat bolsters, a good conolise treatment will sort this and stop it getting worse.
With the car is a great history, backing up the low 106000 recorded miles, in the history is the original bill of sale showing it cost £54,000 when purchased new in 1998. The vendor will be placing a fresh mot on the car prior to sale so all you have to worry about, apart from tax and insurance, is working out how you are going to keep it this clean?
