It might be a shame to see it go to the wreckers but better than that; it should be euthanised. The concept is hideous; the rust is terminal.

A few nice 450ís.

The blue car is an eye watering asking price.

Another classic case of asking top money for a car, with extremely poor photos & description.

That first 450, the seller needs to be told he's dreaming. And there is no way that drivers seat is 123,000, nor the wear on the drivers door card. I think 423,000 sounds more likely! The whole 'genuine reason for sale' statement always makes me suspicious as well.

The green car is a better car, although still expensive given mileage. And its an SEL, without a towbar, so the transmission is less likely to be stuffed.

The gold SLC is almost certainly an import with a replacement speedo, so that mileage is unlikely to be correct. Presumably it had rust repairs at the lower part of the body and they used a different colour to fill it. I wonder if its had an interior change as blue velour is an odd combination with Ikoen gold.

The Green SL looks the pick of the bunch in my view.

The last one is a $2500 car at best. the paint is ruined.

I contacted the owner of the green SEL and he was kind enough to send me more images.

Doesn't look a bad car.
Still struggle with the price though.

My comments relate purely to the 450's - the Sedans. The blue car is certainly way overpriced, and I agree with C107 as in regards to the condition of the interior. I can't be sure, but it would not surprise me if the car is owned by a dentist in the Port Macquarie area. If it is the person I am thinking of, I met him probably about fifteen years ago, and he was certainly a man that I did not see eye to eye with. Initially, I thought that the car was a 6.9 that was owned by Ofontenay because the likeness between the two cars is remarkable. That 6.9 is now in Victoria, with Ofontenay having sold it for $16K.

The car with the additional pictures supplied to Patrick is simply a woeful car - it's certainly one I would not touch under any circumstances. Just so many things so unpleasant to the eye - I just wouldn't want it no matter what.

I guess here I go again being super critical (?) - sorry, that's the way I see it. When I compare those cars to what I know of 116s, and if I compare with my "Gleaming Beauty", I just shake my head. I feel sorry for any prospectiove purchaser. Regards Styria

With a 3.2 litre engine, this would be a rocket!
A pretty rocket

I bought a 320 as well, but it's a W140 long wheel base. Late one - 1997 build, 1998 model year.

And a S350 W220 and another C107 - this time a 350.

That 350 doesn't look bad. Is it in good mechanical condition? Still have the 450's?

Yes, still got everything - except the VW Passat. Sold that to buy the W220 as a daily. Just drove it to Brisbane and back. Averaged 8.5lt/100km over the return journey. How things have changed !

The W220 sounds like a great long distance cruising car.
