1966 Mercedes Benz 200 Fintail

This original UK RHD Mercedes Benz 200 Fintail offers fantastic value and is a top class driving example. The Fintail records just 39000 miles and whilst this cannot be warranted, the V5 records it did have just one owner from 1966 to 2012 and the car was found garaged stored after many, many years off the road. To further support being a low mileage car, the interior trim is largely original and is in excellent condition with hardly any wear evident on the seats.

MGF 482D drives like a 39000 mile from new car. The engine is beautiful and quiet, running perfectly and offering excellent performance. The column change gears feel smooth and the Mercedes Benz handles and brakes superbly. It really does drive as one would expect when just a few years old and will be sold with 12 months MOT and a fresh service.

The underbody looks largely original with excellent floor pans, an area that has often had to have welding work on these cars. The underside is indeed excellent and proves this has never been a bad car. Some of the bright work has had re chroming work recently and at some stage the car has had a re-paint, besides this the car would appear totally original. The engine bay paintwork and door shuts appear original and the exterior has a nice shine. The car is structurally strong but there is evidence of some minor bubbling to the lower front wings and door bottoms. We have considered taking care of this and the fully re-painting the car as this is a superb starting point to take to a truly top class example. With the mechanical strength and quality of drive, the unrepeatable original interior, this car really could be one of the very best. 

We have priced the car sensibly to attract interest and also give the option of discussing having the minor imperfections put right, something we can take care of in our bodyshop department. This could be a £15000-£20000 car with some minor bodywork and a top class glass out re-paint but this is also a car that is on the road, driving superbly and is ready to enjoy. It's ideal for some regular use and any expenditure on improvements will only add value to the car. In this case, we would prefer to offer the car onto the market as it has arrived with us and therefore interested parties can decide whether they want to have any further work carried out. This is a great opportunity so please contact us for more information.
