500SEL for sale in UK (Midlands)

(1989) Lovely condition EXCEPT THAT IGNITION MODULE FAILED YESTERDAY! This has been my 'daily driver' for the last 4 years and 60k miles out of total mileage of238k. I bought her from original owner. Serviced every 6k. Frankly I was going to take her off the road next month cos of fuel costs anyway but now she's probably going to be broken for parts unless someone wants her very quickly. She was recovered to a local garage yesterday and they want me to move her soon.

Interior is nearly perfect dark green soft leather and light 'Willow' green body has no rust (both rear wheel arches had repair pieces put in earlier this year). Various new parts fitted in my ownership including new timing chain / slippers / full set of lifters, rockers, and both camshafts. (A lifter wasn't pumping up and I had everything sensible replaced). All shocks. A/c converted to R34A last year. Drives beautifully (or did till yesterday!). All elec motors work well (seats, windows, roof). Excellent tyres but alloys could do with refurb as some corrosion. Various bushes replaced in rear suspension this year.

Yours for £500 BUT BE QUICK.
