Following the outbreak of the First World War in 1914, Europes car industry was decimated. In Germany both Daimler and Benz went back to producing cars post-war, however, times were tough. A merger between Daimler and Benz would ensure that both companies survived and following a technical co-operation agreement in 1924, the companies formally merged on the 1st July 1926. Mercedes-Benz was born! Subsequently, Mercedes-Benz went on to build some of the greatest cars of all time. The cars from Stuttgart bearing the three-pointed star all had one thing in common . . . they were renowned for their technical innovation, build quality, luxury and performance. In 1951 Mercedes-Benz introduced the Type W187 220 Series cars, which was the first model to be powered by a six cylinder engine post World War II. This model was a great success and built in relatively big numbers. In the 1950s Mercedes-Benz produced one of the greatest cars of all time the iconic 300SL Gullwing and 300SL Roadster. Whilst fabulous sporting cars, they were very expensive and generally sold to the rich and famous. The Type W186 and Type W189 300 series four door luxury tourers were built alongside the Type W198 300SL Gullwing and Roadster and they were indeed fabulous cars in their own right, though still very expensive. Mercedes-Benz wanted to build full sized luxury cars that were more affordable than the Type W186 and Type W189 300 series cars, so the Ponton range of cars (Type W120/W121/W105/W180/W128) filled that void nicely. In 1959 Mercedes-Benz introduced the Type W111 as a successor to the very successful Ponton. The Type W111 was built as a sedan, coupe and convertible with many different engine configurations. The sedans were sold in big numbers all over the world, however, as has been the tradition with Mercedes-Benz the two door and convertible cars were built in far smaller numbers and carried a significant price premium. The majority of the Type W111 models were powered by a 6 cylinder engine of varying capacity, ranging from 2195cc (220 series) through to 2778cc (280 series). In 1969 Mercedes-Benz introduced a new 3499cc V8 engine which they fitted to the Type W111 coupes and cabriolets. The Type W111 was succeeded by the Type W116, built from 1972 through until 1980, which was formally recognised as the first series of S Class cars built. The Type W126 followed, which was the second series of S Class cars. The sedan was first introduced in 1979, followed by the coupe in 1981. As with past models, the Type W126 was offered with many different engine sizes and options. The top of the range flagship model was the 560 SEC, Type W126.045, which was built from 1985 through until 1991. Powered by a 5.5 litre V8 that puts out 221kw/300hp the car can reach 250km/h while acceleration from 0 -100 km/hr takes less than 7 seconds. It is probably the most comfortable way to travel across the country. In press material, Mercedes-Benz claimed that . . . even at 200km/h, you can talk in normal voice or listen to music without being disturbed by wind or road noise. The high-speed refinement and stability were hardly matched by other cars at the time, let alone one that offered space for four people. Oldtimer Australia is delighted to offer for sale an Australian delivered, factory right hand drive 1988 Mercedes-Benz 560 SEC. The car has a build date of October 1988. When new, this car cost almost $250,000 including on road costs, making it one of the most expensive cars you could purchase back in 1988/1989. This car has its original book set with a data card and a substantial history file. All of the documentation on file confirms that this highly optioned car was sold new by Mercedes-Benz of Sydney on the 7th November 1989 to its first owner, a Mr Sutton from Berry in NSW. The car was first registered by Mercedes-Benz as PQX290 and changed to ABP17P for Mr Berry. The car was finished in almondine red (colour code 512) with a mushroom leather interior (trim code 265), which is an absolutely spectacular colour combination. The following option codes are noted on the data tag: 412 = electric tilting/sliding roof steel, 442 = airbag for driver, 581 = automatic climate control, 625 = Australia version and 809 = change of model year, last figure shows new model year. The following additional option codes are noted on the data card: 233 = fog lamp special wiring, 430 = rear head rests left & right, 524 = paint coat preservation, 581 = automatic climate control, 596 = infrared reflecting tinted glass, 601 = oil for limited slip rear axle, 613 = head-lamp unit asymmetrically for left-hand traffic, 664 = tyres 275/65 R17 with rims chromium-plated and 677 = battery for use in tropical countries, higher capacity. Sutton sold the car to its next owner in Melbourne in October 1998 at which time the odometer was circa 115,000 km. The car passed through two further careful owners before being acquired by the current owner in late 2016. The service book has been religiously completed, with the last entry on the 21st February 2009 at 200,103 km. There is a subsequent invoice on file dated 27th March 2010 at 216,336 km. The current owner is fastidious to say the least and in early 2017 the car was sent to classic Mercedes-Benz specialists MB Spares in Canberra. The brief was to go through the car to ensure everything was right and take an excellent car to the next level. There are invoices on file for in excess of $16,000. At that time the odometer was 226,122 km This car has been maintained by the Mercedes-Benz dealer network through until 1998 and subsequently by marque specialists, Classique Motors, Jason Purvis and MB Spares. Today this car presents and drives spectacularly well. It is hard to believe it is a 32 year old car and the odometer reads 226,641 km. You could time warp this car back to the Mercedes-Benz show room floor in 1988 and it would look right at home. In fact, it would not look out of place on the Mercedes-Benz showroom in 2021! The car was repainted in late 2007 and it still presents exceptionally well. There are a few very minor stone chips on the bonnet, but you have to look hard to see them! There is a small paint chip behind the right rear wheel arch, which is almost on the underside of the car and difficult to see. All of the external trim, chrome, glass and even the wheels are in excellent condition. The only exception is the front badge which is worn. Inside the cabin, the car presents magnificently. The leather is clean, fresh and supple. There are no rips, tears or even scuff marks . . . it is pretty much mint. The dash, instruments & controls and even the carpet are also in excellent condition. The timber, which is a real feature on these cars, is also excellent. Everything looks to be in working order, including the sunroof and the seat belt presenters, which was a technological innovation for 1988! The air conditioning system works well and it blows ice cold air. You open the bonnet to reveal an engine bay that presents consistently with the rest of the car. Everything is clean, neat and tidy. The boot is also in excellent condition. There is a spare wheel, tool kit, jack and safety triangle, all in excellent condition. The car starts easily at the turn of the key and even though there is a thumping V8 under the bonnet the engine is incredibly quiet. So how does it drive for a 32 year old car? Probably even better than it looks! It is just a superb car to drive and it does everything in that typical Mercedes-Benz Germanic way. It is comfortable and effortless to drive but if you have the need or are in the mood you have loads of performance on tap. Make no mistake this is a fast car . . . a real wolf in sheeps clothing. On the road the car tracks arrow straight, the brakes pull the car up as required and it handles superbly. The car is smooth and whisper quiet inside the cabin. The only anomaly we have identified is a clicking noise, which most likely emanates from the indicator stalk on the steering column, when you turn the steering wheel. Accompanying the car are two sets of keys, books (including a fully stamped service book) and a number of services receipts dating back to 2007. Sometimes it is hard to get a true representation on the condition of a car from photos, however, in this case we think a picture really does say 1,000 words! These cars were extremely well built, however, the overall condition and presentation of this car today are a credit to its current and previous owners. This car has lived a cherished life and it has clearly been impeccably cared for and maintained. This Mercedes-Benz 560 SEC will suit a true Mercedes-Benz collector or enthusiast. It would be very hard to find a better example and it could be a serious concours contender. This car is one out of the box! Highlights: - An Australian delivered, factory right hand drive example finished in a stunning colour scheme. - Matching numbers, as confirmed by the service book and factory data card. - Impeccably maintained from new. - Full service history with books, tools and more. - Just a beautifully presented motor car that is magnificent to drive. - The best of the best. Price $74,950.

The Swallow Sidecar Company was founded in 1922 by William Lyons and William Walmsley. In 1934 Lyons formed SS Cars Limited to effectively take over the operation from Walmsley. The SS brand was quite successful; though they had a reputation for having more show than go. The Jaguar name first appeared as a model name on an SS 2½ Litre Sports Saloon introduced in 1936. For political reasons, Lyons changed the name of his company to Jaguar Cars in 1945. Whilst the SS100 is indeed a fabulous car, it was the launch of the legendary Jaguar XK120 at the London Motor Show in 1948 that really put Jaguar on the map. The car caused a sensation, which persuaded Jaguar founder and design boss William Lyons to put it into production. The XK120 morphed into the XK140 and ultimately the XK150 and in total, just over 30,000 cars were built over fifteen years of production. Jaguar introduced the E-Type at the 1961 Geneva Motor Show, which like the XK120 all those years ago, took the motoring world by storm. The body styling was simply gorgeous and technologically the E-Type was an engineering masterpiece and it set new standards in all areas. Whilst automotive styling is somewhat subjective the E-Type is often ranked atop lists of the most beautiful cars and in fact, it has been described by Enzo Ferrari as the most beautiful car ever made. Jaguar could build sports cars but they were also very successful at building sports saloons. In 1955 the Jaguar Mk1 was introduced to fill a gap in the model range of a small to medium sized luxury saloon. Initially introduced with a 2.4 litre 6 cylinder engine and later a 3.4 litre 6 cylinder engine this model was very successful with some 38,000 examples sold between 1955 and 1959. In 1959 the Mk2 was introduced and whilst visually similar at first glance the new car had many improvements over its predecessor. In addition to the 2.4 litre and 3.4 litre engines the Mk2 was also offered with a 3.8 litre engine as used in the E-Type. Just over 80,000 Mk2s were built from 1959 to 1967. The Mk2 was to be replaced by the XJ6, however, delays with this car resulted in Jaguar producing another series of the Mk2 which was designated as the 240 and 340 to fall into line with the nomenclature used with other models on offer at the time, specifically the 420. The 240 and 340 were built from 1967 to 1969 andalmost 4,500 and 2,800 respectively of each model were built. The Jaguar Mk2 was also very successful on the race track winning events all over the world. One of the most successful teams was UK based John Coombs, who also developed a business selling Jaguar Mk2s upgraded with Coombs modifications. Oldtimer Australia is delighted to offer for sale a 1967 Jaguar Mk2 Coombs Tribute. This particular car is a factory right hand drive Jaguar 240 that has been upgraded with a number of Coombs modifications, including a 4.2 litre Jaguar engine. The early history of this car is not known, however, it is understood to have been a long term Queensland car. The car was registered in Queensland as 398 LHP. It was owned by an ex Leyland/Jaguar mechanic for many years and he passed the car down to his son. It was sold through the Classic Car Garage in Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast in April 2011 to its next owner in Gympie who decided to upgrade the car with a number of Coombs modifications, including a Daimler 4.2 litre engine. The car was purchased by Jeremy Bests Cummins Classic Cars in Sydney who decided to go the full monty with the car undertaking further Coombs modifications. The decided to fit a 4.2 litre Jaguar engine that was rebuilt for one of Ian Cummins Jaguar E-Type race cars, but never used. The modifications and upgrades which make this car a very special Jaguar Mk2 include: - Race prepared 4.2 litre engine - Rob Beere billet alloy oil pump - Scorcher/Petronix ignition - Power-Lite starter motor - Uprated electric fuel pump and pressure regulator - 2 x 2 inch HD8 carburettors with alloy air trumpets and alloy air spreader copied from originals and sourced from Coombs engineer Ken Bell - Alloy radiator and electric cooling fan - 5 speed Getrag 260 gearbox (from a BMW) with overdrive 5th gear - Solid front cross member mounts - Uprated front sway bar - 30% stiffer front springs - Super-Pro suspension bushes - Koni dampers front and rear - 4 pot brake calipers with ventilated discs - Alloy cold air ducting for front brakes - Goodridge steel braided flexible brake lines - EZ electric power steering - D type gear knob - Coombes replica exhaust in stainless steel - Genuine Minilite knock on mag wheels - Period correct leather trimmed bucket seats - Louvred bonnet - Momo steering wheel - Various period correct stickers including Coombs dealer rear window sticker The engine was built up by Graeme Lord Engineering with Argo con rods, special 9.5 to 1 pistons, E-Type inlet manifold, E-Type camshafts, large volume oil pump with special flaps in the sump to help with oil surge, extractor exhaust fitted to a gas flowed big valve cylinder head with 3x 2 inch S.U carburettors giving 325 BHP at 5,800 rpm. When the engine was installed into this car it was done with a dual carburettor setup, most likely to get it to fit! Today this car presents pretty well, but it is all about the drive! When you approach the car the louvred bonnet and knock on Minilite wheels are the first giveaway that this is no ordinary Jaguar Mk2! You open the door, slide into bucket seat, get comfortable and then with great anticipation fire up the engine. Theres no doubt it means business! It has an edge for sure, but it is still relatively refined given its specifications. Immediately after getting mobile you appreciate the EZ power steering which make the car incredibly light on the road and easy to drive. The Getrag gearbox is firm and it is well suited to the car. Not surprisingly the engine has loads of power on tap and it is so incredibly responsive. The car handles and stops as you would expect. Make no mistake this car is quick . . . it is one heck of a drivers car! From say a meter the car presents well, but it is no trailer queen and on closer inspection, there are a number of stone chips and small blemishes in the paint evident. The most noticeable are some scratches on the left rear guard, adjacent to the boot. The panel gaps are pretty good and the car is clean underneath. The boot looks to be very original and whilst it is showing some wear there is no sign of any rust. All of the external trim, chrome, lights/lenses and the glass are in very good condition. The Mk2 enthusiasts will note that the slimline Jaguar 240/340 bumpers have been replaced with the traditional Mk2 bumpers without overriders. The condition of the interior of the car is comparable to the exterior. It is clean and tidy. The feature of the interior is the steering wheel and bucket seats, which like the bonnet louvres and Minilite wheels reinforce that this is no ordinary Jaguar Mk2! The upholstery is in good condition and there are no rips or tears in the seats. The door cards are clean, though they are starting to sag. The timber is clean with no cracks evident, though the dash is starting to show its age and it would benefit from a refurbish. All of the instruments and controls are also in good condition and everything looks to be in working order. The car was fitted with new Dunlop CR65 tyres in January 2018. Accompanying the car is a recent history file, documentation pertaining to the engine build back in 2003, a spare set of wire wheels, a spare wheel in the car, tool kit, hammer and jack. Its time for the ultimate game of cops and robbers! Price $79,950.
