Mercedes 300 Adenauer 1955

Mercedes 300 B W186 Adenauer 1955 for sale

Exterior: Original black paint with an incredible depth. Room and rubber details are very close to perfect. A big black Mercedes like this almost needs tires with a thin white stripe if you do not like it these can be turned inwards

Interior: This car has an all original interior in close to perfect condition. I would think that it is very rare to find a Mercedes from 1955 with an original interior in such great condition as this one.

Engine/History: This car that had the licence plate O39409 was bought new in July 27, 1955, by Lundberg Bilstation, a limousine service company in Göteborg (Gothenburg), Sweden. Customers were large industrial companies and companies in shipping in Göteborg. It should also have been used as transport to other national and international celebrities. After 15 years of distinguished service it was in September 11th 1970 sold to Harry Carlsson. The car had then run 110 000 km. Harry was the owner of Kallebäcks åkeri, a road carrier company in Göteborg which he founded in 1928 and now had developed to a substantial size. His son has mentioned that Harry was very pedantic about the car and maintained it in very good condition. At that time Harry lived in Tvååker south of Göteborg and the car got the licence plate N39409. In 1973 the licence plate was replaced by the new type.

In 1977 Harry passed away and the car that still was in very god shape, as stated by his son, and was sold to Alf in Kullavik. The care had now run 205000 km. Alf was a Mercedes collector and did some work on the car. He has stated that he had a high-quality paintwork done on the car. He had also the chassis thoroughly clean by e.g. taking old body coat away and painting it.

In October 28, 1995 the car with 209000 km on the meter, was sold to Ingemar in Ulricehamn. He is a car collector and owner of Ulricehamns Bilexpo, which used to be the local Mercedes dealer.

In October 13, 2002 the car was bought by Stanley in Västerås. It had then 210200 km on the meter. Stanley is another Swedish car collector.

The present owner, also being a Mercedes collector, bought the car in February 3rd, 2009. The meter then showed 215000 km. He rebuilt the engine by boring the cylinders and putting new pistons in. The crankshaft was grinded, and all bearings replaces. The cylinder top was grinded, and all valves were checked and found ok. All valve guides were replaced and valves and valve seats grinded. The motor rubber mounts were replaced. The engine now runs very well, with oil pressure according to specification and without excessive mechanical noise.
The central lubrication system has been renovated. The brake system has been through a thorough overhaul.
A tailored stainless-steel exhaust system (Ferita) has been mounted. The battery was replaced 2019.
The car has now run about 218000 km.

Interior: When you sit inside a Mercedes 300 Adenauer Convertible it is easy to understand this was one of Mercedes finest cars in the production line. The detailed chrome on the dashboard makes a perfect contrast towards the red leather. For me the best colour combination on any classic car is black with red interior and this big Mercedes W186 really comes alive when you pull the top down and you can see the bright red leather as the car is driving by. And the condition of the interior is just stunning. Every little chrome detail inside the car is just perfect, just like carpets and headliner. The beautiful time period correct radio in the centre of the dashboard.

Mercedes 190 W121 1957

Mercedes 190 Ponton W121 for sale

I love the Mercedes Ponton cars! They are so relaxing and comforting, just like that big lazy boy chair when you come home after work. It can tilt backwards a lot and you think it is going to flip, but it won’t. If you had a stressful day, the best Medicine is to go for a drive in a Mercedes Ponton!

Exterior: The car was repainted about 5 years ago, but only below the windows. The top is still in the first paint and looks very good. The chrome is very nice. There are some smaller scratches in the bumpers, but overall very nice. The windscreen and seal have just been replaced and the rest of outside rubber is good. New tyres with white stripe fitted this year. Very elegant car that gets a lot of road attention.

Interior: The beauty of this car is that the interior is 100% original and absolutely perfect. With minimal traces of use, it is like stepping in to a time capsule. The textile is nice and clean as it was always covered. The panels do not have any cracks and the headliner is beautiful. All chrome details inside are as perfect as they can be after 60 years. Even the original plastic carpet is in good condition.

Engine: Has just been properly serviced. A new plate on the side of the block has been fitted and it runs perfectly. Starts easily and gives good power to this beautiful little car. Also, gearbox and final drive are quiet or with normal sound. This is the strongest engine put in a 190 Ponton with 84hp so you are cruising in style!

History: Sold new here in Sweden in 1957. The first owner had the car until 1975 and the second owner used it until 1977 when it was taken out off traffic. He kept the car in a dry barn until 2017 when he sold it. It was epainted in 2017 and some smaller body work was done. The covers that had been on the interior since 1957 were taken off. It has just gone through a proper service and back on the road. To see a car from this age, so original and in such condition, is very rare. There is no doubt this car was well taken car off. When you open the door, there is still all the service stickers to be seen.

Note: This car can be see in Classic Expo Salzburg 19th-20th October and and 24th-28th in Padova Italy.

Mercedes 280SE 3,5

Mercedes 280SE 3,5 1972 for sale

Exterior: A very close to perfect outside of this 1972 Mercedes saloon. Very nice silver paint with perfect original chrome. The W108 is a car with many small details around the windows etc and all of these are in very good condition. The model is very expensive to restore and for this reason it is better to buy one in good condition from the start. As you can see it is rolling on the Barock wheels with original style Micheline tyres in very good condition.

Interior: Perhaps the best thing about this car is when you slip in behind the big steering wheel and you feel scent of leather and old unrestored car. You can tell right away that this car has been precious, to every owner that had the privilege to own it over the years. It has very well taken care of and everything inside the car is absolutely beautiful. And just look at that Becker radio! To be honest I do not think a classic car could get any better than this looking from the inside. Trunk area is also very nice and it comes with original spare and tools. Please note that this car is fitted with original A.C.

Engine: This car has covered today 99.000km and it has a think binder of receipts of maintenance work that has been done over the years. It starts and runs perfect in the engine, gearbox and final drive. 3.46 ratio on the final drive for more relaxed driving at high speed.

Mercedes 280S W108

Mercedes 280 S W108 1971 for sale

The Mercedes W108 was built between 1965 and 1972 and including all models around 360,000 cars were produced. Still you do not see many of them around today. Perhaps it is because it is an expensive car to restore and the values have been low in comparison to the coupe and convertible models.

Exterior: A perfect paint in the original colour moss green. Very nice chrome, glass and rubber details. The car was repainted in 2004 and has been used only on sunny days after this. At this time, all rubber seals were replaced. The tyres were replaced in June 2018 and if you do not like the thin white stripe, it can be turned inwards.

Interior: The interior in this car is very original. Nothing has been replaced and it is still in a wonderful condition. There is minimal wear on the driver’s seat, but the rest of the car's cabin is still close to perfect. The colour combination of inside and outside works very well.

Engine: The engine was taken out and received new piston rings and new bearings in 2014. New gaskets all around. It has travelled 2,000km since then. Also, the pneumatic rear suspension was replaced for a new original at this time. The engine has just been serviced, all fluids replaced, and it runs very nicely.

History: This car was standing a long time for sale when it was new, perhaps nobody wanted to buy it since there was a new model out. So, it came to the first owner and into traffic in November 1972. Mr Pettersson bought the car in 1972 and when he passed away in 1995, the car was taken over by his daughter that owned it until 2018. It is today a wonderful and well-maintained classic Mercedes Benz that looks and drives absolutely fantastic.
