Mercedes Benz 250 SE Coupe 1966
This Mercedes Benz has undergone a complete "nuts and bolts" restoration over several years. The attention to detail is astonishing.
Prizes include "Overall Winner" at the Mercedes Benz Club NSW 2018 Concours D’Elegance which was held in conjunction with the Sydney German Autofest. The trophy board shown above was for the overall win - it also won "Best Restoration" and "Class Winner" on the day.
At the same show in 2019, “Best Restoration”
Australian Capital Territory All German Day 2019, "Class winner"
Another award in 2019 was the ICJAG (International Chief Judges Advisory Group) Sydney Concours D’Elegance, "Best in Class - Classic German”
Machinery Cleanery products were used throughout the restoration process
Every part has been disassembled and either refurbished or replaced. Most impressive is the major portion of the hard tasks apart from the superb painting and the leatherwork have been done by the owner.
The above four photos of the engine bay can be expanded to show the standard of detailing achieved
Photographs do not capture the as-new appearance of the interior or the luxurious aroma of the leatherwork.......
I was privileged to be taken to the Bowral Meet from the owner's house in the hills along a dirt track and a winding secondary road. The car performs and handles as well as it looks
Here's Rod, the owner and restorer of this vehicle pictured with his car at the Bowral Cars and Coffee meet in November 2019
