Make: Mercedes-Benz

Model: W115 220/8

Colour: Autumn Beige

Interior:  Black MB-Tex


Odometer: 53,394 Miles



An exceptionally original pre-facelift W115 with just 53,394 miles from new.

Desirably finished in Autumn Beige with unworn Black MB-Tex interior, our fabulous W115 has been cherished throughout its life, owned by only the most shrewd of guardians. First register to the Embassy of Pakistan in 1973, it then passed to Dr Hussain where it was kept within the family for nearly 40 years. In recent years its been in the hands of Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts who have maintained the car to the highest of standards allowing it to be in this exceptional condition today.

Optioned with everything you’d want in a W115, automatic column transmission and power steering, the sweet 4-cylinder 220 engine runs perfectly having been well maintained throughout its life. Sharing the unpinning’s of the sportier R107 chassis, the W115 is a joy to drive on the road, and no slouch in todays road conditions. Light but precise steering using the classic chromed steering wheel makes any journey an occasion.

As you would expect from this type of vehicle, the body work is in original, rust free condition with the chrome showing no signs of age. All 5 chrome hub-caps are present and unblemished with particular note to the unworn interior.

A rare opportunity to acquire a low-mileage W115 in such fine original unmolested condition.

In our eyes an extremely undervalued model of this iconic era of Mercedes-Benz.
