This unusually‑coloured W123 Mercedes‑Benz 230 ‑ the hue is Cayenne Orange with Tobacco interior, incidentally ‑ with its great numberplate was registered in August 1978, and has just two previous registered keepers recorded on its V5C. Its first (Portsmouth) owner kept it until 1994; it was then sold to a Welsh owner who retained it until 2018. We're told that there was some mechanical and bodywork restoration during the period 2018‑22. Recent work has included an oil change, new fuel pump and new sunroof seal. The car was driven 140 miles to the sale, although during ACA's test drive, it did prove quite reluctant to idle well.

The odometer currently shows 49,760 miles and the car's MoT is valid until April 2023, despite the fact that, as an historic vehicle, it no longer requires MoT testing.

The paperwork folder includes the current and some past V5Cs, period brochure with a W123 Mercedes in Cayenne Orange on the front,  and assorted invoices. These include one from May 2022 for a Stromberg carburettor repair kit, a 2019 bill for replacement of the water pump, and a further 2019 receipt for new front and rear brake pads and a fuel system clean. The invoices in general date back to 2019. As well as the current MoT certificate, there are ones from 2004 back to 1991. The original book pack is also in the file, with owner's manual, radio instructions, dealer guide and service book stamped up to 33,133 miles in August 1994.
