Thanking you all in advance.

Welcome to the forum.
Will keep an eye out.

Are you happy with either a W108 or a W109? they are very different cars to own, so wanted to check. Generally people want one or the other. If you do go for a W109, make sure its not had a W108 interior fitted as it destroys the value when it comes to resale.

Hi Bryce,

Thank you for your reply,

I would personally like the W109 but in saying that, I understand that they are getting harder to come by these days. So a W108 would be ok.

Thank you for the interior comment, I will definitely keep an eye out for that!

Thanks again

Tim

Have you seen this one?


Its' been for sale for ages, largely because the seller tried selling it with a very silly price in mind, and it went stale. It's now got a (more) sensible price attached to it, with some room to negotiate it down some more.

Its an attractive colour and seems in overall good order. Looks like its had a re-trim in the proper W109 pattern. I wouldn't say its the best re-trim in the world, but not too bad. Would want to look under the sheepskins on the front seats. Needs a period radio too.

Thanks Bryce,
Yes I've seen that one before.
Any seat covers on a sale add worry me a little to be honest.
Due to contracting covid I missed out on 2 x 300sel 3.5 early this year that went for half of what he is asking.
They were both in comparable condition to this one.
I shall keep hunting!
Thanks again Bryce, you've been a great help

Yes, his asking price is still on the high side.

The one that sold at Shannons was quite a basket case though, if that was one of the ones you're referring to.

Hi Bryce,
There was a white one and a black on black in Sydney. But I think the black one was a W108 from memory.
Are you talking about the silver one? I don't know much about that one.
Thanks
Tim

Yes, The silver one that went through shannons. Apparently it pretty much needed everything and was a lot better in the photos than in real life.
