Description

Mercedes' distinctive W110 `Fintail' model was a popular mid-size Saloon offered with the choice of four-cylinder petrol or diesel engines of 1.9 and 2.0-litre capacity respectively, a total of 356,199 of which were produced between 1961 and 1965. This splendid-looking, time warp petrol example is reputed to have been first owned by the German Embassy. Finished in Dark Maroon and trimmed in Red hide, it was the subject of a magazine article in September 2003, and is presently considered to have `original' four-door bodywork and engine, `excellent' interior trim, and `very good' paintwork and four-speed manual transmission. The 33,600 miles currently registered by `CYR 84C' is believed but not warranted to be correct, and this classic Benz is now being offered complete with its original book pack, green log book, collection of invoices, V5C showing three previous keepers and old MOTs dating back to 1970, plus one valid to February 21 next year.
