This lovely Mercedes Coupé has been in the hands of just one owner from new.
Purchased new from Mercedes agents, Arlington of Bedford on February 4th 1993, the owners kept the car until they retired from driving last year.
This is a cross-over model of the 124 series, with the pre-facelift appearance (chrome grill and amber indicators) but with the later electronically injected multi-valve 2.2-litre engine.
Specified with Brilliant Silver paintwork contrasted by rare and fabulous looking black Sports Check cloth. It’s not a highly specified coupé, in fact it was not ordered with a radio when new and still does not have one. Just the blanking plate on the dashboard. It’s rare to see this but we think there’s something appealing about this in an age where cars are festooned with technology – it’s a car for driving pure and simple.
All original books and manuals come with the car including the servicing book, showing a full service history comprising of 16 stamps, the majority of which are from the supplying dealer, then a MB specialist and the last service is ours completed in January ’18.
The overall condition is very good. There are a few minor marks/blemishes to the paintwork but as you can see the car is very smart overall. Crucially the body and underside are structurally excellent.
The interior is absolutely immaculate, completely original and free from any wear or fading.
This is a particularly lovely car to drive. It feels fresh and tight as if it were a two-year old car. Perfect oil pressure and temperature readings with excellent performance and imperceptible gear changes.
In summary, an original one-owner Coupé in excellent order throughout with a great history and that’s lovely to drive. It would make for stylish and enjoyable everyday transport.
