Thanks for your enquiry about our Australian delivered 1988 Mercedes-Benz W126 300SE. This is a regretful sale of our much loved Merc. We have been custodians for almost 10 years, but we now live offshore on Macleay Island which unfortunately has no auto LPG, so we have to ferry the car to the mainland for each refill, which is obviously a costly exercise. It has had very little use since the pandemic, and for the past 7 years has done very low kilometres on an island only 6 km long.

The previous owner did work on the engine and cylinder head and fitted a new torgue converter, converted vehicle to straight LPG and only ran Mobil 1 in the engine. I have quite a few receipts. Since we have owned the car we have done upgrades and repairs as follows: Hydraulic rear suspension replaced with Pedders Sports Rider system; correct power steering pump fitted; new serpentine belt tension adjuster; new OEM gas generator; new water pump and thermostat; new left tie rod end; front and rear disc brake calipers rebuilt; new distributor cap, rotor, plugs and leads; new OEM air conditioning compressor; new neutral safety switch; recent new calcium battery.

Car has had new oil and filter every 12 months regardless of the tiny mileage it does on the island, and I have only ever used Penrite HPR 10 Gas. Only known problems: air con climate control works great but currently needs re-gas, odometer needs new plastic gear set (speedo works fine), could use new exhaust flange gaskets. All lights and electrics, power windows, central locking, etc., working fine. Factory sunroof, ABS, quality Sony CD sound system. Interior is clean and presentable, some wear on drivers seat. Includes original jack and first aid kit, 5 factory alloys. One repaint in original colour, still very presentable but getting a bit thin on roof and bonnet, rest is fine. Quality LPG conversion by Memmotts, last certified in 2012.

Car is located on Macleay Island and can be inspected and test driven here, just an 18 minute Translink ferry ride from Redland Bay. Transport to mainland and Qld Transport transfer docs will be included in the sale. Vehicle 837HLL is currently on full rego until May 2021. RWC is not required for transfer if vendor lives on an offshore island, but vehicle is in good order. Please let me know if you need any additional information.
