18. 1961 Mercedes 190 D W121

 

post-20295-0-38411700-1528638087_thumb.jpg

Seen in Horley, Surrey.

Offered for sale in 2017 at £15,895 with the following description:

"We have for sale a 1961 Mercedes 19D Ponton, as you can see has been finished in cream type colour with cloth interior and ivory steering wheel with chrome detail.  The Mercedes runs and drives very well and is mechanically good.I would say that it has been fully restored at some point in its life as it is in very good condition both inside and out and underneath with no rust, i have no paperwork for restoration so would need to view for own opinion. I have lots of manuals and papers for registration etc along with all old mots and tax discs, there is also a folder of receipts for parts etc. Lovely historic Mercedes for very little money."

The first MoT before registration doesn't get logged on the system on the same way as a normal one because it's done on the chassis number, so can't be found by searching the reg

Ah, thanks for that info.

25. One owner 1990 Ford Escort Eclipse

 

post-20295-0-68861500-1528987824_thumb.jpg

 

Seen in Carshalton, Surrey.
The Eclipse seems to have been a run-out special edition of the Mark IV with large rear spoiler but only a 1.3 engine!
The boot on this one has lost its Eclipse badge, but gained some colour coded tape, presumably concealing rust.

Another cheating one from Cowpie Country Show, Surrey.

I like the number plate on this, not only because it spells TODGER to my immature mind, but also because of the mix of fonts - the 6 and 5 don't look like they belong together!

I wonder if that originally had the strange metal rear bumper arrangement.

This generated some discussion on Flickr. I'm not certain, but it seems likely the early Rover Metro C had the full bumpers like this one and the horrible metal bumper with plastic end caps was introduced later.
