Under bonnet 9.5/10
Boot interior, tools and spare 4/10
Log books still in it, been very well maintained.
Amazing triple seal door rubbers and double glazing.
Glass sun roof has a slight issue.

She runs sweet as a nut, but couldnít drive it today as no trade plate available.

She is a big car and visually huge compared to the W126 560SEL
Makes the W220 look like a C class.

I will be going back to drive it.
Patrick did you ever go back and take another look at the S600?

Hi Bryce.
Iíve been away with work a fair bit since then, and am currently waiting in the lounge at Brisbane to get home.

The guy negotiating the sale said he will contact me if he can swing a trade plate.
He hasnít done so yet.

I have a trade plate, but I canít use it on his car.

Trade plate regulations are very strict these days.

Good luck with the car, seems like the seller isn't in a big rush to sell.

As this is the 500th post of this thread, here is a rather nice looking 500SE:

Somebody needs to buy this to prevent it from being slammed and bagged. Looks like a lovely original one.

Sort of a car of the week. I traveled to Tuncurry yesterday to visit my sister whoís friend wanted me to look at a car of his that is surplus to his needs in his retirement years.
He is a Jag & MG buff.
I checked this car out today which is a 2000 model 4L V8 S Type.
But I also wanted to include pics of his showroom quality MkII, which of course the S Type was based.
2 beautiful cars.
One for sale, one not.

That is a great looking MK2. Also nice to see one that has not been turned into a coombs replica.

Agreed mate.
A lovely MkII.
I should have taken pics of the interior and under bonnet when he showed me.

This guy used to own a number of new car dealerships in Taree.
He has some seriously nice cars
Including a stunning 458 Ferrari.

Michel,
He is after $8,500.
However i discovered a pretty bad oil leak at the drivers side front.
He pulled out the paperwork and just late last year he had done a full service to the car, plus they re sealed the rocker covers due to an oil leak in the same area.
Either they didnít fix it properly, or they didnít find the proper culprit at all.
It will be going back next week for it to be fixed.
Every fluid has been changed on the car, it has 4 new tyres, new brakes all round, and a new battery.
It is registered until December. Speedo is 168k.
Considering there is really nothing to spend, I think itís pretty good value.
Everything works as it should.

Some issues I also found were the very rear of the hood lining is coming away from the roof, the auto dimming rear vision mirror fluid has penetrated into the mirror its self thus the mirror will need replacing, the mechanic who did the rockers covers has put a small scratch on the top of the passenger side guard, and the windscreen guys cracked the plastic trim between the dash and the windscreen.
This would probably glue back together ok, as it is just plastic.
The interior is 9/10 and is cream leather.
Door & window seals are 10/10 as it has always been in a garage.
Some small stone chips as you would expect on a country car, but still an easy 9/10 for external paint & condition.
All in all a very nice car, it drives very well, smooth, quiet and steers true.

This Daimler 250 v8 is a way of getting the MK2 experience for a fraction of the cost:
