There's actually a bust of them landed on DoneDeal in the last few days, including a LWB 280 or 320, pretty rare in that capacity. Also a rake of C and E class for some reason, perhaps new models coming on stream? Wouldn't touch any of 'em with a barge pole, Mercs of that era are renowned for their quality control issues. And rust. If you want a good old Merc, go older.

Most recent Vehicle Registration Certificate issued on: 24/05/2012


Might be nothing, but it just changed hands, and logbook was issued yesterday, and it's being sold again.

Looks like the current owner was also told the car would pass the NCT no bother

It's a buyers market. Why would people even consider buying cars without NCT when you can get similarly priced cars with NCT? Plenty of dreamers and fools out there so it seems...

Is it just the price that makes it (potentially) fishy to you?

That one has been up for sale for ages, fairly sure it was even for sale when Conzy was looking at his one. Wonder why really..

Still think it would be nice with some nicer wheels though.

Don't think so tbh.

If it was for sale earlier in the year it would have had not much NCT left, many folks would be put off by that

When he was looking for one I thought I remembered seeing that one and saying the exact same thing about the wheels.
