1991 Mercedes 300 SE - £43,000 Hilton & Moss body and mechanical restoration

 

Crystal Blue, blue MB Tex interior.  146,000 miles, 4 previous owners.

 

Truly a unique car.  A heart over head restoration.    This belonged to the owner's mother.  It had remained unused for several years and he decided to fully restore it to its former glory and present it to her as a surprise. 

 

Who to restore it?   He'd just had his E Type resorted by well known, respected Mercedes and Jaguar restoration specialists, Hilton & Moss.  The car was delivered to them in late 2016 and over the course of the next 10 months they fully restored the car for him.

 

They tell me that he then presented it to his mother who used it for a year or so and put 2,000 miles on it before deciding it was too big for her to use regularly.  He sold it back to Hilton and Moss and there it sat for several years.

 

I spotted it when discussing the details of my Pagoda restoration with them, made them an offer and bought it. 

 

It's now for sale simply because with the return of my classic Ferrari, I need the garage space.  The car is for sale at a fraction of its restoration cost.

 

The quality of the restoration is apparent in the paint finish, panel fit and the number of rare and expensive parts used in the restoration, bumper mouldings, chrome etc.  It's as good today as it was when restored 4 years ago.

 

In addition to the body and interior restoration, the head gasket was replaced and a number of other mechanical issues were corrected.  These are documented in the history file.

 

I have over 100 photos of the restoration and redacted copies of the invoices.

 

The car was MOTd recently and as a result a reconditioned steering box was fitted, and the few advisories rectified.  Hilton & Moss fully serviced it in December last year.

I'd recommend viewings - the car really is as good in the flesh as in the photos.

 

The car is advertised elsewhere and I reserve the right to withdraw it for sale on here if sold elsewhere.
