1978 Mercedes Benz 230C

This really is a wonderful find that has spent the last nineteen years with the same owners in Skipton, North Yorkshire. The Mercedes Benz is well known on the Northern England show scene and has taken part in many rallies, shows and events covering an impressive 28,000 miles in nineteen years. A notebook accompanies the car recording all events at venues such as Harewood House, Chatsworth House, Donnington Park, Newby Hall, Beamish museum, Benningborough Hall and Barnard Castle. The Mercedes has successfully toured Derbyshire, Yorkshire, The Lake District and many other regions on Mercedes Benz Club runs. KBV 210S has also won many 'first in class' awards at Mercedes Benz events, all recorded in the history file. This Mercedes has proven to be a wonderful car for its long term owners, giving years of great memories and year after year of reliable touring with fellow enthusiasts.

KBV 210S has covered a total mileage of 96000 miles and is still finished in its lovely rich original colour. The upholstery is original and in excellent condition and would not look out of place in an ultra low mileage car. It is clear from the stunning interior this has always been kept as a weekend vehicle, covering low annual mileage and it has been dry stored. The bodywork is in very good order, the paintwork holds a lovely deep shine and the brightwork is all very impressive. From the history file we know the Mercedes was treated to a body restoration in 1995 and it has lasted very well. The engine bay is presented superbly and it is no surprise the car has won shows. The attention to detail under the bonnet is excellent and the car is very sharp in every respect. The boot area is stunning and the underside very well maintained.

Mechanically the car is first class and was driven over from Skipton faultlessly. The Mercedes has been regularly serviced and treated to anything it has required over the years. The car comes with its original handbook and service book with service stamps at 1236, 5863, 10568, 19345, 26800, 31600, 40010, 52009, 61700 and 69865 miles. Since 1995 all services have been recorded in the notebook and MOT certificates also warrant the mileage. In 1992 the car was treated to a new life time guarantee exhaust system and water pump and in 1995 new rear discs and pads, two rear shock absorbers and thermostat. Over the last nineteen years the car has had annual servicing, new brake calipers, brake pipes, new door and window seals, new ring gear, renewed starter motor and alternator, new handbrake cable, front brake pads, new petrol pump, new radiator and bottom ball joints. KBV 210S has been maintained with no expense spared and it is no surprise it has arrived in lovely driving condition. The engine runs smoothly, is strong with excellent oil pressure and the gearbox changes up and down smoothly and correctly. The Mercedes brakes efficiently, holds the road perfectly and the steering is light and correct. This is a special car with a high level of originality and it is correct in every respect. There are not many left like this and the car offers excellent value and is ready to use and enjoy.
