1965 Mercedes-Benz off road for 44 years with just 7,295 miles on the clock for sale with H&H Classics
1965 Mercedes-Benz 190C.



BUXTON.- H&H Classics will sell what a unique 1965 Mercedes-Benz 190C that has covered just 7,295 miles from new and which is still with its original owner. The auction takes place on 27th November at the Pavilion Gardens, Buxton, where the car will be sold at ‘No Reserve’.

The Mercedes-Benz was laid-up in 1975 as the owner considered it "too good to use in modern traffic with careless drivers". It remained in its garage until unearthed recently by the H&H transport team. It really is a 'time warp' example with an interior in exceptional condition.

The owner ordered Mercedes-Benz fitted carpets but chose not to use these and had another set made to protect the rubber matting.

The car was supplied by Mercedes-Benz main dealer, Comberhill Garage in Ashton in Makerfield on September 1st 1965. Amazingly, the original dealer wallet, salesman's business card, key fob, first and last tax disc, dealer tax disc holder, radio leaflet, radio blanking plate and last MOT certificate are all still with the car.

Imagine finding this car with only 7,295 warranted miles on the clock and still belonging to the family that bought it new in September 1965! After a decade of use it was deemed too good for our roads and placed in dry storage where it has remained for the past forty-four years. It comes to sale with the aforementioned original paperwork plus a toolkit, jack and wheel brace. The spare wheel has yet to be fitted!
