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)

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!

I reckon it’s in the right places - so maybe you’ve got to think about price? I don’t know anything about these at all - but if you’re taking it to the right market and getting no bites, then perhaps it’s a bit toppy.

The only other place people part with proper money for cars is PH, but you will have to pay and it’s not classic PistonHeads fodder.

Good luck!

Nice to see one of these still about. I had an A plate Carlton 1.8 many moons ago, it did me proud and was a very comfy old barge. GLWTS

That Rekord just oozes quality, it's lovely. Good luck with the sale, like many on here (I'm sure) I wish I were in a position to own and run it.
