Our instruction was to fully restore this W126 to exacting specification to the highest possible standard on the basis the vehicle would be part of our clients Mercedes S-Class collection once finished. It was crucial this restoration was to be cosmetically flawless but matched with 100% reliability as the vehicle would be driven and used at the owners pleasure. This particular vehicle when ordered new had every possible extra which made the restoration challenging especially trying to source key components both mechanically and cosmetically.
The restoration was carried out over a 12 month period and a further 1 month shakedown stage to ensure reliability before the vehicle was transported to its owner. This was one of the most enjoyable restorations we have had carried out in recent times as the build quality of W126 models is of such a high standard it was a pleasure to get the vehicle back to same quality as it looked and drove when it left the factory in 1990
