SPECIFICATION
Metallic paint, leather upholstery, electric front seats, cruise control, electric windows, electric sunroof, alloy wheels, ABS, radio cassette player, headlamp wash/wipe, illuminated vanity mirrors, alarm system.

Supplied new through Swinford Motors in 1988, this car remained in the same private hands until purchased earlier this year by a specialist, I subsequently purchased the vehicle and have decided that I cannot keep this one plus my SEC, SL and a wife. I looked long and hard to find this vehicle in this condition. This 126 series coupe is from an era when Mercedes-Benz has a revered reputation around the world for build quality and engineer excellence. So this car harks back to a legendary time. This example is as near perfect as you will find. Having been garaged from new and service intervals with time rather than mileage being of primary concern, it is in stunning order throughout.

High quality, superb condition 126 coupes are getting very hard to find, and let there be no doubt, this is of the highest.

This car will be supplied with the original dealer wallet containing the handbook, service book (fully stamped to date), dealer listings, V5 document, MOT certificate.

INTERIOR
The interior is finished in black leather. All leather work is near perfect barring a couple of very minor creases on the drivers seat. It even retains the original showroom smell. The carpets which have had overmats from new are perfect, as is the headlining, door cards and dashboard. The burr walnut wood trim is also unmarked. The electric seats, windows, sunroof etc all work accordingly. Both the steering wheel and lever are trimmed in leather. All gauges work.
The boot area is unmarked and looks as though it has had very little use. The tool kit, spare wheel, jack and warning triangle are also present. Once again these all look unused.

BODYWORK
The paint is finished in smoke silver metallic, arguably one of the finest colours for this car, the paint finish is perfect barring a couple of very minor stone chips on the front bumper. There are no dents or rust. All the panels are factory original.
The alloy wheels are also original and corrosion free. The wheel finish is near perfect with only very slight blistering.
The body fitments, badges are all correct and factory finish. All the light lenses are crack free.
The chrome work is all perfect.

MECHANICS
This car has the 4200cc V8 engine mated to the 4 speed automatic gearbox.
With such low mileage and meticulous servicing, this car is mechanically without concern, with thorough servicing this should remain so.
Service intervals have been as follows:
935
6060
8727
12518
16263
21397
28826

54024
56577
59950
61794
62110
62639
Servicing has been with Swinford Motors, Carols or Wolverhampton, Howard Williams Mercedes-Benz.
The car drives impeccably, with a very smooth gear change it is a joy to drive.

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a much sought after car in superb condition, and which is very much like Mercedes-Benz intended it to be in 1988.

The photographs do not do the car credit. This car is for the most discerning Mercedes enthusiast and should provide a long and very enjoyable ownership, tinged with an awful lot of pride.

This is an opportunity not to be missed.
Buy the well respected ‘Mercedes Enthusiast’ magazine and you will see these advertised by ‘specialists’ for £15,000 in this condition.
