Classic Rolls-Royce with a sovereign charisma
When the Mercedes 300 SEL 6.3 production ended in July of 1972, it wasn’t a secret that there would be an impressive successor. But it took until May of 1975 for the top version of the series W 116 was introduced and impatient customers had to wait until September. Daimler-Benz had done it again and created a dream car – the 450 SEL 6.9 was considered the best limousine of its time.
Our Mercedes-Benz 450 SEL 6.9 is basically in its original state and has only been very carefully and lightly restored. Its first release was in Germany to a senior executive of a well known automotive supplier. After that the oldtimer was owned by two collectors. It has always been in service with Mercedes and looks like a high end car in original shape and state which is very rare. This top saloon is one of the last 50 models with ABS,
The top model of series W 116
Mercedes-Benz’s Series 170 was always also available as a government model and a 170 OTP (Open Tourer Police) wasn’t cheap at DM 10,650. That was a lot of money for a small series with only 530 vehicles which could not be sold to the general public. Only much later, when the series was retired from government service, did some of them get acquired by private customers.
Our Mercedes-Benz 170 Da OTP has been with its current owner since 1969. The oldtimer has been thoroughly restored and regularly driven. This rear tourer sports a very elegant look in dark blue with black fenders.
Very rare police car from the 1950s
Jaguar’s large saloon, the MK VII, was introduced in 1950. Its marketing coined the slogan “Grace, Space, Pace”, a perfect description of its outstanding attributes. Its detailed design evolved from the MK VIII to the MK IX, its most mature model. Very fast at 220 PS and comfortable as an automatic. A little over 4,000 cars with left hand drive were manufactured.
Our Jaguar MK IX hails from the US and has been completely restored by its current owner in Germany which increased its purchase value significantly. The classic is registered in Germany and technically super fit with just a few light signs of wear which are actually charming. We are always on the lookout for classic cars like this, which got invested in without worrying too much about cost. This saloon is a perfect example!
The big Jaguar: Grace, Space, Pace
For BMW, the break at the end of the Second World War was particularly harsh: The car plant in Eisenach was lost, and the plant in Munich was largely dismantled. Nevertheless, the automobile industry was reorganized in Munich in 1951/52. Unfortunately, BMW could hardly make money with the Isetta on the one hand and the big luxury saloons on the other. It was the small but modern BMW 700 that saved the company in the end. With the “new class” BMW returned to success in 1962. The BMW 501 with the six-cylinder engine was the first post-war construction: superbly engineered suspension, conservative but solid bodywork and an engine developed from the pre-war BMW 326. The BMW 501 with the newly developed V8 aluminum engine (2.6-liter displacement) closed the gap between the six-cylinder and the more opulent equipped 502 model.
Our BMW 501 V8 was built on December 18th 1958 and not registered until 28.03.1960 because of non-acceptance. The buyer was from Pforzheim (Germany). This noble sedan with gray paint and dark green leather is very elegant, with a mileage of only 70,000 km, which appears probable.
Nobel and elegant
When Daimler-Benz introduced the 170 S in 1949 it represented the automotive premium class because of its chassis and perfect detailing, and despite its pre-war construction. It’s marketing slogan was “The car that doesn’t know bad roads!”. Given the road conditions at the time, that was quite the statement! Between March of 1949 and February of 1952 26,331 models were built before the slightly edited 170 Sb was introduced.
Our Mercedes-Benz 170 S has an interesting story: It was first delivered as reparations to the materials department of the French military in Germany (FFA) where it was deployed in Oberkirch in the Black Forest. In 1965 the “military Mercedes” received a complete overhaul in Friedrichshafen. In 1974 it “retired” from military service and received a German registration and papers. In 2005 the classic was sold to its current owner and is immediately driveable. Its gorgeous character with foldable sliding roof make this classic stand out!
ready for immediate use, wonderful aura
After World War I the demand for larger cars, especially the ones with chauffeur, declined rapidly. So Henry Royce felt compelled to develop a smaller model, the “Twenty” which was introduced in 1922. Its outstanding performance for its size (100 km/h were possible!) made the Twenty very popular with its owners. The next version of this model was the 20/25 HP which was in production between 1929 and 1936. With 3,9827 cars the small Rolls-Royce was a big success.
The body of our Rolls-Royce 20/25 HP is an All-Weather Convertible from T.H. Gill & Son Ltd. It is a particularly high end and one of a kind car. Its gorgeous Art Deco mounts in sterling silver are remarkable. Its first owner was a Mr. Ferguson. The vintage car ist “matching”. It enjoyed a complete restoration by Bowling-Ryan Ltd. In Kearsley near Manchester. Today this classic is registered in Germany.
high quality oneof a kind vintage car
At the Geneva Salon in March 1959 several manufacturers showed the new “trapeze line” that Pininfarina had created: BMC with the Austin A 55, Fiat with the models 1800 and 2100 and also Alfa Romeo. Daimler-Benz designed the new body with tail fin under the leadership of the design genius Karl Wilfert. When the car industry media was introduced to the new cars in August 1959 they raved about their understated elegance and its generous spacial design.
Our Mercedes 220 SE b is the top model with the amazing 120 PS injection engine, it was delivered in Italy, was owned by the church in Calabria for a long time and is now registered in Germany. It’s seemingly untouched body is impressive and the fabric of its interior must have been renewed at some point. This classic is distinguished and elegant and original cars of this model series have become rare.
Discreet elegance and lots of space
The BMW 502 made history as the first German post-war automobile with an 8-cylinder engine. Its characteristics were conservative chassis, modern technology, and expensive. Only approx. 13,000 of these vehicles were sold. The model was a brand win for BMW but not an economic success. The beautiful convertibles were built by Baur in Stuttgart/Germany and Autenrieth in Darmstadt/Germany. According to the BMW archive, only 11 4-door convertibles were built. And apparently only 3 or 4 cars with the strong V-8 engine were delivered.
Our BMW 502 F Convertible by Baur was registered on May 27th, 1955 for Ernst Matthiensen in Frankfurt/Germany. He was a board member at Dresdner Bank and contributed significantly to the resurgence of German banking. The Convertible has been with its current owner since 1998. Before that the rare classic was restored by a German specialty shop. Registered in Germany, this extremely rare oldtimer is ready for a big outing with space and luxury!
Extremely rare convertible with V8 engine
In the 1960s the “PS race” with medium sized cars came from the US to Europe. Mercedes was in one of the leading positions with its 300 SEL 6.3. The effort was minimal: They took the body from the S-series and implanted the super strong engine from the Mercedes 600. The standard air suspension gave the high powered saloon flawless road positioning. The market welcomed the new luxury Mercedes with enthusiasm. Between July 1968 and September 1972 6,526 were built.
Our Mercedes 300 SEL 6.3 was delivered to the US and to our knowledge has had 5 owners. This classic is partially restored and its air suspension, exchange gearbox and its interior have been upgraded. The cflassic is registered in Germany and should get new tires, new brake hoses
