Registration No: JGU 672C
Chassis No: 11102122072668
Based on the flagship S-class W111 'Fintail' Saloon, with its signature upright headlights and imposing traditional Mercedes-Benz grille, the Coupe comprised of a light and airy pillarless glasshouse over a distinctive two-door body. The 220 Coupe was very well appointed inside, featuring Mercedes textured leather and wood trimmings. The model's 2195cc, SOHC engine employed mechanical fuel injection of the same type as the 'Pagoda' SLs - its 120bhp being sufficient to propel the car at up to 106mph.
Presenting in Cream with a Black interior, this 220 has been in current ownership since 2010. It began life as a UK-supplied right-hand drive car, being first registered on the 4th of February, 1965, as ‘860 PO’, a plate it wore until 2019. Now registered as ‘JGU 672C’, there are 6 recorded keepers on the V5C and the odometer displays 92,000 credible miles. Over the years the 220 has benefitted from a number of services and parts from the SL Shop (invoices on file). In excess of £20,000 was invested in the mechanicals in current ownership, including a gearbox service in 2022 and an exchange alternator. A list of new parts that have been fitted, includes: New shock absorbers in 2017; New ignition barrel in 2019; New fuel pump filter in 2019 and a new Bosch battery. Attention has been paid to the brakes in c.2017. The interior has been the subject of a retrim with the front and rear seats being retrimmed to match the original pattern and in Black. The 220 is offered with a large collection of old MOTs, a current V5C and invoices from the SL Shop.
