|Odometer reading||100,899 miles|
|Result||Sold - £2,128|
The W 124 was designed to last many miles with awards actually given and worn by high mileage versions. Much of the 124's engineering and many of its features were advanced automotive technology at its introduction, incorporating innovations that have been adopted throughout the industry. It had one of the lowest coefficient of drag (Cd) of any vehicle of the time due to its aerodynamic body which included plastic moulding for the undercarriage to streamline airflow beneath the car, reducing fuel consumption and wind noise. It had a single windscreen wiper that had an eccentric mechanism at its base that extended the wiper's reach to the top corners of the windscreen.
With two former keepers and a full service history up to 87,000 miles, this fine example is supplied with an MoT test certificate valid for 11 months and comes with many old MoT certificates, tax discs, the original service wallet with hand books as well as three sets of keys. Finished in Diamond Blue with navy blue leather interior, it features rear head rests, leather steering wheel and gear knob as well as an electric steering column, electric windows, electric sun roof, external temperature gauge, head lamp wash wipe and period Clarion stereo.
The owner confirms the car is finished in its original factory paintwork which is in lovely condition with the leather seat still soft and in very good condition with hardly any wear. The engine and gear box are reported to be excellent; the gearbox changes gear smoothly and the car runs well. Offered at no reserve.
