I did James, delivered last Friday from Sydney.  It was a bit cheaper.


Unfortunately it was not this one but a 1972 280CE.  Now the restoration begins.

Whomever it is, I hope he drives it at least once (and not just around the block!), and then lets the folks at Classic & Sportscar get a chance to do a drive report and photo spread on it so that the rest of us can get a bit of vicarious enjoyment from his good fortune.

Chapeau to MB for realising that the car could do some good not sat in storage - proceeds went to a charitable foundation.
