WHY I LOVE MY MERCEDES W114

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

Phil is Di­rec­tor and Com­pany Sec­re­tary for The Mercedes-Benz Club, heads up the W114 Regis­ter, and owns a 1972 250CE. He says: ‘I’d al­ways as­pired to own­ing a Mercedes and saw this one at a lo­cal dealer in 1983. It be­came my daily driver and I re­alised that I couldn’t bear to part with it. Hav­ing cov­ered 189,000 miles now I en­sure that it re­ceives reg­u­lar use and take it to shows.

‘ The usual cor­ro­sion meant the sills have been re­placed, but the rest of the body­work is orig­i­nal and un­re­stored. It’s had some me­chan­i­cal work over the years, but they’re re­li­able as long as you keep on top of main­te­nance.’
