A great example of the ever-desirable 124 estate. Rust-free, incredible service history and only three owners from new.


Supplied new by Malaya, Bromley in October 1995, its first owner kept the car 14 years, covering 83k miles and maintaining a full service history with the supplying MB dealer. After a brief spell with the second owner the third was equally fastidious, owning the car for 11 years throughout which it was maintained solely by John Haynes while taking the mileage up to the current 184k miles. 30 service stamps from new, just serviced.


Azurite Blue metallic with grey cloth interior, it has 7-seats, air conditioning, leather steering wheel and gear knob among the full list of options detailed below.


All the critical work has been carried out on this car; head gasket, wiring loom and the inner wings and jacking points are perfect. We have been through the car, bumper to bumper, and carried out any work required.


The body is very nice with no corrosion and the wheels wear matching Continental tyres all round. The interior is in superb condition with no seat wear or damage to the load bay.


On the road the car drives beautifully and everything works including the air conditioning.


Recent MoT with no advisories, HPI clear, all spare keys, all books and manuals.


Good, six-cylinder 124 estates are extremely hard to find. This is not the lowest mileage example, but it does go to show that with fastidious long-term ownership and expert maintenance, the mileage of these beautifully made cars is just a number on a dial. A perfect 124 estate for somebody who is looking for a well-sorted example to use and enjoy.
