Car check help needed in Sydney

Post by zohar » Tue 30 Aug, 2016 10:42 am

Hello forum members,

Having previously owned a beautiful 1970 250CE in silver & red that was a rust basket case ( the hand brake mechanism ripped out when pulling one day...) , and after a long detour to other classic cars I decided to return to the scene of the original crime and try and buy a solid W114 coupe.

There is a nice looking one for sale in the Sydney area at a dealers. However I am based in Hong Kong at the moment and would be buying the car remotely and shipping it here...

I am looking for some who knows the cars well and is in the area to help me out by giving it a through looking over/test driving it. I am more than happy to pay for the effort.

Please let me know if you are able to help and we can sort out the details.

P.S - If you already own a non rusty good condition W114 coupe and want to sell please get in touch.

Much appreciated

Cheers
Zohar

Hi Zohar, I don't have enough 114 knowledge to assist here but might suggest a Syd based MB specialist that might do a PPI for you if the dealer agrees. I have used Jimmy at Syd prestige for years and he is very accommodating.

Good luck with the purchase.

Thanks Steven.

I managed to find someone and the car is being inspected today.
