1937 Mercedes-Benz 230 saloon W143


This is a beautiful example which had a major restoration in the 1990s. Complete body off and chassis blasted and painted. All new timber ash frame and floors. PMO. 6v negative earth and starts immediately. Runs and drives beautifully with excellent oil pressure. Original and rare on this model factory fitted Webasto sunroof. Chrome work 95%, could do with spare wheel clamps rechromed. New carpet set fitted. Very nice detailed engine bay. 6 X brand new white wall tyres fitted. Overhauled brakes with all new cylinders etc. Complete new wiring loom. All electrics and lights working.

Summery: A very nice example of this pre-war 230 saloon. It needs a very small amount of finishing of the interior i.e. head cloth (only surrounding the webasto roof), piping around the doors, boot carpeting and the rear seat base needs refurbishing. This has not been carried out as any prospective new owner may decide on a complete new interior to his or her own desires, colours and tastes.
