Previously registered overseas. My guess is it was ordered by a seriveman posted in Germany and brought back to the UK when he returned. It was originally fitted with Pencil beam headlights which have been removed (probably on return when converted to right hand beam lights)


Sideways is the only way forwards!

It it was Irish, it'd be beige with vinyl inside and no passenger mirror. And a towbar and an acre of literal shite inside :)

A mate of mine had a Mercedes W114 that had come by this route, bought in Germany in right-hand-drive and registered over here when he brought it home, so the reg plate made it look a few years younger than it actually was.

Nobody ever thought to change the headlamps in the intervening forty-odd years so people were always flashing at him.

Does anyone know of anywhere I can advertise this for sale? eBay is a big no no, twice advertised at £15 a time with no joy. Its currently on car and classic and retro rides, cant think of anywhere else to advertise it really.

Im surprised it ever passed an MOT like that!
