Model:  W124 260E 
Exterior Colour:  Nautic Blue
Interior colour:  Grey Cloth


A lovely, highly original example of an early six-cylinder W124 saloon with just 85k miles from new.


Finished in Nautic Blue metallic contrasted by a light grey cloth interior and optioned with alloy wheels, cruise control, leather steering wheel and gear knob along with automatic transmission.


Early, pre-facelift W124s without the side cladding are comparatively rare these days, so it’s great to find such an well-preserved example.


Supplied by Dalesview of Clapham on August 1st, 1989 to a Mr Nugent of Lancashire, who owned the car nearly 29 years until 2018. There have been two subsequent owners, taking the total to just three.


All books and manuals come with the car along with recent paperwork for repairs and servicing. Last serviced December 2021 at 84,721 miles. HPI clear and two keys. Very clean MoT history.


This W124 has evidently had a very easy life as it is extremely original and completely rust-free. All jacking points and wheel arches are perfect and original. It really is very rare to see a W124 in such untouched rust-free condition.


As the photos show the car is in very clean condition. The wheels are unmarked (recently refurbished) and shod with recent tyres. The interior is in great order and still with its original radio and MB over mats.


On the road it drives beautifully as a good W124 should. The engine is very smooth, as is the gearbox and it rides superbly.


In summary a great example of an early, six-cylinder W124. It drives superbly and is completely solid and highly original. A very usable car that’s ready to drive and enjoy.
