Spotted for sale in 2019, this imported SEC would have likely been from Hong Kong or Japan. Needs a little work and has some rust in the corner of the rear screen.. I don't think Australian SECs were ever optioned with cloth, so this is rare to see. The airbag option was also rare in Australia. The seller noted the car has some other rust - and was unregistered. Bids starting at 8500 AUD in Sep 2019. A bargain under 10K, and a nice way to get into the classic Mercedes market.
We spotted this rare Brock Fairmont Ghia B8 on Ebay in September 2019. Looks to have a bit of rust, but not too bad. A great project and probably a good investment. There are a few of these that come up for sale each year which is surprising considering there were a couple of hundred of the B8s built. This particular car is number 84, Finished in Rosewood red / burgundy. There are quite a few Brock Fairmont Ghia and Falcons here on Classic Register. Some of the others are listed below.
This one was spotted on Ebay Australia extremely cheap - unbelievable for such a low mileage example. It's VERY hard to find these cars in late model form (1996-1998) - most are the earlier S500s. Hard to say how many would be about but estimate only a few hundred C140 CL500s on the road in Australia (maybe a couple of thousand cars if you include the earlier S500 coupes and the 1992/93 SECs.
Found on Ebay USA in Sep 2019, with a buy now price of $8,750! It;'s never been a better time to buy one of these future classics. At the time of the sale the seller noted: Very well maintained garage kept it's whole life ,interior extremely clean like nobody ever sat in..119k miles runs and drives excellent AC ice cold with all the power options of its time and every button functions like it should,... I don't think it can get any more luxury than this back of its time just wonderful vehicle cleanest one I have ever seen

This 64 Daytona was offered for sale by auction on the Silverstone auctions website - see the link to the original listing on Silverstone's site here. In the original listing (we arfe unsure whether it has sold), the sellers noted the following about the car:
It's rare to see one on such an exotoc clour - most examples kept to traditional blacks, whites, and greys. This looks great in what we think is Quartz Blue - If anyone knows for sure please let us know. This example of the C140 was advertised on carsales.com.au and through other online sources in Australia, in September 2019. If anyone has history on the car, please contact the author on the button provided so we can update this page.
