Subject to a professional body-off restoration by us, to the highest standards.  This involved removing the engine and gearbox, lifting the body off the chassis, taking the interior and glass out, stripping back to bare metal, replacement panels where required and full professional respray of both chassis and body.  Has only covered a few hundred miles since and is in all round excellent condition.  Must be one of the best W460s in the UK.

There is a full photographic record of the restoration, which is presented in a hardback photo book.  It comes with original operating manual and service book which has most of the stamps and a good history file with all the old MOTs.  There is also a workshop manual (similar to Haynes).

New rear quarter and arches both sides (inner and outer)
New rear door low panel
New front wings both sides
New door sills both sides
Refurbished petrol tanks and new fuel lines
