I purchased this car in 2003, although complete it was in a very worn and tired condition. I then restored the car along with other specialists, in which i sourced parts from around the world.
During the restoration and along the way I have met some interesting people and the car is now classed as one of the best 6.3 litre SEL's s in the UK. The car has been featured in magazines, Radio 2 and was on display at Mercedes Benz World in Surrey during 2007. There were only approximately 600 of these cars made in right hand drive and world wide there are hardly any left in decent and or original condition.
By many motoring Journalists it is still classed as Mercedes Flagship Saloon. The car is still known as ' Donovans ' Mercedes as its original owner was 1960/70's singer Donovan. The ex Beatle George Harrison amongest others has also travelled in the car, as well as Bobby Whitlock from Derek and the Dominoes. More recentley in 2011 Moby use the car for his music video 'Lie Down In Darkness'.
I have written a couple of technical articles and my own website. It would be good to see the car used in more Photographic shoots, Music Videos, Films as well as the main Wedding hiring.
Thanks for reading.
