Lot details

Registration No: PSN 245G
Chassis No: 114.022-22-000371
MOT: Exempt

  • Reputedly supplied new by Callander's Engineering Co Ltd of Glasgow and resident in Scotland until earlier this year
  • Credible 93,500 miles with numerous stamps in the original service book
  • Thought to have been professionally repainted during the 1990s prior to being taken off the road

Introduced in 1968, Mercedes-Benz’s ‘New Generation’ W114/115 models (otherwise known as the /8 series) were intended to attract new buyers to the marque and hence broaden its customer base. Typically well-engineered, they featured all-round, independent coil-sprung suspension and four-wheel disc brakes together with revised manual and four speed automatic transmissions. Penned by the celebrated French designer Paul Bracq, the Coupe version of the W114 was unveiled in 1969. Of pillarless construction, it featured windows that could be fully lowered for optimum open-air motoring and a notably longer boot lid than the related Saloon. There was the choice of 2.5 (250) or 2.8-litre (280) straight-six engines coupled to a four-speed automatic transmission. Just 67,048 such Coupes were produced prior to the cessation of production in 1976, 42,379 of which had the smaller engine.

Finished in the handsome combination of Silver with Red upholstery, this decidedly rare right-hand drive example was supplied new in Scotland and has spent all bar the past six months north of the border. The accompanying paperwork and general condition of the interior suggest that the 93,519 miles shown by the odometer represents the total covered from new. Acquired by its last registered keeper during 1987, the Mercedes-Benz is thought to have been taken off the road five years later (the most recent MOT certificate on file was issued during 1992 at an indicated 93,488 miles). Reportedly treated to a good quality, professional respray at around the same time, the four-seater has been laid-up for the past three decades but still presents nicely. Although running and driving, the 250 CE will require work prior to road use. Now in his mid-seventies, the vendor has reluctantly decided that 'PSN 245G' represents one project too many in an already crowded garage. Increasingly sought after, this handsome pillarless Coupe is offered for sale with old-style V5 Registration Document, service book (containing entries up until 11th August 1981 at 73,821 miles) and sundry paperwork.
