    Regrettably, we are having to put up forsale our ex-diplomat LHD 1963 280S W108 which has recently been completely restored (externally) no rust and resprayed. Around £6k spent on her since ownership, she needs a new good home :( :( :(

    -2.8ltr Straight Six with electronic start!
    -Brand new full carpet €700
    -Complete rust removal done of entire car
    -Complete respray
    -Complete underbody protection
    -Great Condition brightwork
    -Sony Headunit with iPod control & my old amp

    Bad Bits:
    -Tiny oil leak/weap
    -Headlining looking its age, needs replacing or full clean
    -Rip in dashboard
    -Some of the seals are cracking, needing replacing
