Mercedes of this age often have a class and elegance that few cars manage to achieve. Even in a delapidated state this Mercedes still looks beautiful, and it so needs saving, or perhaps even restomodding. It’s a manual car which would tempt me to keep the car with the original running gear but this could be stunning with the right aesthetic and a nice V8 under the bonnet. I’m not sure I would want to spend £5k on it but the car is complete and the engine runs though it has no brakes. It has had 3 owners from new, and is now MOT and tax exempt, though the MOT is obviously still sensible.
