"Jesmond and Gloria I happened to read some of the testimonials posted on your website and after our recent dealings feel compelled to add my two cents worth despite the fact I never usually give written testimonials other than in my work environment .Firstly I have to say that everything I have read pretty much sums up your combined service and approach to selling and buying of the classic cars you represent .Secondly having brought two cars , one sight unseen, and sold two cars in the last 12 months I can only reiterate the comments of others regarding your honesty and integrity and good communication. As for Gloria's attention to getting the logistics arranged smoothly and other follow up given the unfortunate delivery issue with one of the cars I bought, I cannot say enough and appreciate the efforts .It truly is a pleasure working with you on my NZ fleet of vehicles. Having also had the chance to meet you and spend a few hours looking at and talking classic cars during my last visit to NZ it is a pleasure to see someone else with the same passion and knowledge of classic cars .I see that your business is not just a business but is a passion to do the right thing by the people you are working with, be they buyers or sellers and also to do the right thing by the cars you sell .Given we are now working on another sell and buy opportunity I am sure we will continue to have more dealings in the future as my little fleet takes further shape Best Regards"

      A Mercedes-Benz is engineered like no other car in the world.

      The SL is a grand tourer manufactured by Mercedes-Benz since 1954. The designation SL derives from the German Sport Leicht, or Sport Lightweight and was first applied to the 300SL.

      About the only thing as valuable today's Mercedes Benz is yesterday's Mercedes Benz, when its philosophy was to preclude annual styling changes and the mass production of inexpensive cars. As a result, yesterday's models become more sought after and expensive as they get older.


      • Immaculate condition throughout
      • Clean, Rust free body with beautiful, like new paintwork and the colour scheme is amazingly beautiful.
      • This car was subjected to a ground up restoration and is today, without a doubt, one of the finest examples of this model in New Zealand
      • When it was new back in 1971, this Mercedes-Benz 350SL cost twice as much as a Jaguar E-Type, which actually is less ridiculous than seems. On paper, this Mercedes may not be all that special, but its superlative built quality is what sets it apart from everything else. This particular SL was so well built, it remains in excellent condition 47 years after leaving the factory.
      • Driving wise – its one of the best we've owned or driven.
      • All matching numbers.

      In many ways, the SL is the perfect classic car: one could argue that its not the fastest or prettiest, but still affordable to buy (especially when one considers that this is the model after the Pagoda). Plus its reliable and easy to live with. What more do you need?

        This is a driver's car where form follows function; where performance and safety work hand in hand. 

        No small wonder that these older Mercedes keep increasing in value. They boast a unique legacy and represented in their time state of the art automotive technology. It will be interesting to see what these cars will be worth in a few years time.

        Car will be sold Warranted and Registered if sold in New Zealand.
