1983 Mercedes Benz 230E - 1 owner

A78 JCX was first registered on the 14th October 1983 and has had just one owner from new. This superb, original Mercedes Benz had its Pre Delivery Inspection with Mercedes Benz main agents Huddersfield Garages Ltd and was supplied new to its one owner in Sheffield. Europa Cars Ltd/Lancaster Europa in Sheffield then maintained the car for almost 20 years up to 103,000 miles. The original service book is with the car and is stamped with Lancaster Europa in Sheffield at 638, 6447, 12356, 17958, 22564, 28160, 35315, 42086, 48128, 54049, 60170, 64222, 70778, 76605, 82614, 88457, 95151, 100265 and 103752 miles in 2001. The local main dealer serviced the Mercedes Benz 19 times in 18 years at an average of every 5500-6000 miles. A Sheffield based Mercedes Benz specialist has maintained the car since with the service book stamped at 107446, 112450, 116426, 120440, 123440 and at 125371. The most recent services have been recorded by the one owner by hand and the Mercedes Benz has arrived with us having covered a total mileage of 135,000 from new.

The Mercedes Benz comes with an exceptional history file containing all original manuals and service book, original bill of sale, Mercedes Benz factory cards, spare keys, invoices for the early and more recent servicing/maintenance and 31 MOT certificates. The comprehensive history details all the cars maintenance throughout its life and having most been looked after by the local main dealer it is in very strong mechanical condition. A78 JCX is excellent on the road with a superb strong engine, smooth changing lovely automatic gearbox and the car feels tight, precise, responsive and clearly from its mileage and excellent history we know it has always been superbly maintained and kept in top condition.

The Mercedes Benz presents very well with an excellent straight body, superb panels and a lovely deep paint finish. In early 2019 several thousands of pounds were spent in removing any rust from the lower panels of the car. All rust was cut out, new metal sections fabricated and let in and the relevant areas re-painted. As result, the Mercedes Benz is now offered onto the market in excellent structural condition. The interior is remarkably original and of a lovely standard. Having had one owner for almost 36 years we know this car has been cherished, nurtured and as expected the interior represents one careful owner using the car from new. This is a remarkable find and a truly genuine, honest example that is ready to use and enjoy.
