    Why do you need a very cheap W140?

    £2300 isn’t very cheap.

    It's way too cheap, if you want a semi-decent example of a 90s S Class that won't break you, IMO...

    You'll find a nice W202 for that money. And it looks like a W140 that has 'shrunk in the wash'.

    Hi Calum, welcome to the forum. The one you have found on ebay would make me very nervous. It's getting close to needing a new MOT, that in itself could open up a money pit. The other worrying thing is that it is being described as a project, that also tells me it is a money pit. Barn find on the one hand and a part exchange on the other hand, which is it ?. With a limited budget I think it is a big risk for you, you could end up with an expensive white elephant that you won't be able to drive. :(

    I have enquired. It was taken in part exchange So is not technically a barn find. I don’t know why they have listed it as sych. 1 former keeper but no service history hence the price. Mot expires in 6 days to. Bit concerning. It failed on excessive corrosion issues last year I believe but has since been re passed so it must e been rectified, possibly welded back to a satisfactory standard?
