This car is a bullet proof car prior with the tragic demise of Tan Sri Abdul Rahman Hashim in 1973.  This car is a very heavy car prior with its extra thick glass.

Classic Mercedes Benz At Subang Jaya

While sending my car for washing yesterday, I saw these magnificent machines being serviced at the Shell service kiosk near USJ4 and managed to have a chat with the owner. He is a Singaporean working in Malaysia and he has four classic cars under his custody. Currently he owns a 1976 Mercedes Benz 280S and a 1974 Mercedes Benz 230.6. One would drooled to see these cars; as if like it has just got out from showroom particularly the 230.6, very well done and very good bargain. Well, here are the pictures of the cars. Prepared to drool….

1976 W116 280S. All original and it has its original owner’s manual including the service booklet. He is now a proud second owner after 30 plus years living with the previous owner. The most important thing is that, everything is original from A-Z the interior is Orange MB Tex.

Well, here we go now, the 1974 W114 230.6, I must say this car is the most beautiful W114 I ever seen on the road. The car is almost flawless except for the high idling due to faulty carburetor. Well, here are the pictures. Enjoy and drool my friend.
