13,700 MILES FROM NEW.
UNBELIEVABLE ORIGINAL NEW CONDITION.
Channel Island registered from new, this Mercedes is arguably one of the best available in the world today. This car has been pampered and garaged from day one and owned since 2000 to date by an air commodore.The first owner was a family member.
The Polar white paintork is completely original as it left the Mercedes factory in 1996.
There is not one single dent,scratch or mark on this car and it has never suffered from rust due to being garaged and car covered.
The inside of the doors are as new, as are the pillars, and the sills still have the factory plastic covering them.
All glass is as new including all lights.
All chrome as new.
The underside of the car has been wax oiled from new and is beautiful.
**WHEELS AND TYRES**
The alloy wheels do not have a single mark or blemish and have never been curbed.
The The Pirelli p600 tyres are as new.
The original wheel nuts have been replaced with locking nuts and the originals are in the tool kit, wrapped neatly in a plastic pouch.
The complete interior is original and as new including seats, carpets, roof lining, wood, switches, steering wheel, pedal rubbers,dashboard,controls and so on. The car also still smells new.
The car has never been smoked in and the cigarette lighter has never been used.
The original Blaupunkt classic stereo is still present.
There is not one mark, sun damage, wear on switches or any wear at all to the cars interior. It really is quite remarkable.
Also fitted with a factory glass tilt/slide electric sunroof.
As the photos show, the engine bay also appears brand new and has never been jet washed.
The carpets are perfect and the boot well is as new with the original spare wheel and tyre both present and unused.
The tool kit is also full, unused and as new.
All the original manuals, service book, certificate of conformity and two sets of original keys with card, are all present in the Mercedes wallet in the glove box. Again these are all new and never appear to have been read.
The service history has always been completed by the main dealer (Jacksons garage) with the exception of one carried out by Derek Warwick Honda.

Current mileage is now only 13,739. I will also have a fresh service carried out by Mercedes for the winning bidder to complete the book to date.
Today i had a well known local Rolls Royce technician of over 40 years look at the car, and he said he has never seen such an original, unrestored and potential concours winner, in his entire career. I truly believe it would score maximum points in a concours show. This will make a great investment for relatively little outlay.
I have set the starting price extremely low with no reserve so this car is here to sell. I do not have it advertised elsewhere. Anyone wishing to buy the car now, please email me sensible offers and i will consider. Please no silly offers as i am aware of the cars potential value.
As the car is Vat free, Channel Island registered from new, there may be import duty to pay depending on which country you intend to import the car. Please check with your local customs prior to bidding if unsure.
I am able to deliver the car to Portsmouth for the winning bidder at a cost of £150.
A deposit of 10% is needed within 24 hours and the remaining balance due within 7 days.
Payment either by cash on collection from Jersey or bank transfer should you want the car shipping to Porstmouth. Please note the car will not leave Jersey until payment received in full.
Anyone wishing to view the car please contact me. I am available every day next week. Flights daily to Jersey from most UK airports.I can collect you from the airport.
Finally, please feel free to ask any questions.

Please also note, the car is supplied with a Jersey log book which can be exchanged for a V5 after Vat paid and Mot complete. There is no such thing as an Mot in Jersey. I will however guaranty it will pass.

Today i have just been advised that the Mercedes is a 1 owner car as it was purchased by the air commodore brand new as a company car. He left the company in 2000 and purchased the car from the company.
Just to clarify, this Mercedes has had only 1 owner from new.
