I saw this car when it was at Euromotive in Parramatta Road a couple of months ago. This was actually the 3rd car that Sleeping Beauties Restorations restored, and is featured on their web site.

The car was not in this condition when I saw it ! It seems that it might have had a brake failure as the car was in desperate need of some maintenance. The underside of the oil filler cap was that nice milky sludge from a lack of use, there was no coolant, let alone water, in the radiator, no oil in the central lubrication system, etc. etc. I could go on for a while.

If I recall correctly, they had $49,900 on it, which was grossly overvalued because of the work that was required to bring it up to standard, and that included needing a repaint. It looks good in the photos and at 20', but there was a lot of work to be done. Will be interesting to see what it brings.

Sold for $20k plus the 6.6% buyers premium, and it had a blown head gasket, wonder if the new owner knew that?

I think the head gasket is possibly going to be the least of their problems to get this back to good running order. The head gasket is not that expensive (but the tensioner is if they have to do the timing chain and tensioner), but it will depend on what damage might have been done to the head. $20,000 is a reasonable price for it.

300CE is a W124 coupe, but this car is actualy a W186 300b (lower case b) from the mid 50's. I own one, looks like this.
