This delightful, largely original and rare RHD Ponton Mercedes Benz has come to us in very good order and is ideal for regular use. 77 YMD comes with a comprehensive history file that includes its original service book. Several early services have been stamped in the book and include a service at 22571 at Mercedes Benz, Brentford , 29000 at Mercedes Benz - Kundendienst, Aschaffenburg, Germany and at 38700 at Auto Scholz & Co, Bamberg. With the service book we have an original Mercedes Benz Europa Service 'Stationen', detailing all dealerships, original parts catalogue and both invoices and MOT's since the early 1990's.
Since 1993 the Mercedes has only covered around 4000 miles having summer use and attending various shows. Interestingly the car did win ‘best non MG car in show' at the 2000 MG's Queen Victoria Concours in Southend so whilst not in perfect order, the car is certainly very presentable. The body is very straight, the car has been painted many years ago to a very nice standard and the chrome work is bright. The paintwork has aged well and the car has a very honest feel. The upholstery still retains original seats, door cards and headlining and has a nice patina. The engine bay is very clean, as is the boot compartment. The 190 has been well cared for over recent years and there are invoices for maintenance work to include brake re-commissioning work, a new clutch disc and release bearing, carburettor rebuild kit, re-conditioned starter motor and replacement timing chain.
These robust and reliable W120 cars are ideal for long distance touring, regular use and we are pleased to confirm our Mercedes is ‘on the button', runs beautifully and performs well with a strong engine. The car is very comfortable cruising and the column change gearbox is very good, changing up and down the gearbox smoothly. The brakes are responsive, the steering handles well and the suspension feels very good. On the road the car feels relaxed and is very comfortable. The Mercedes has recently been put through an MOT but will be fully prepared in our workshops prior to leaving us.
