Finding a favourite, classic car

16 March 2022

Anyone who has accompanied Gents Barn since the beginning almost 5 years ago will know that the heart of our founder beats strongly for the automobile brand with the star, among other things. It is therefore not entirely surprising that the best dream cars from Mercedes-Benz always find their way to Gents Barn. What does a classic car dealer pay attention to for his customers and of course for himself? Our most important criteria are always the same - the best possible, rust-free vehicle base paired with just a few registered owners, a well-maintained checkbook and a look at the respective potential weak points of the car. We do not want to hide the fact that the search for a very good vehicle also requires a relatively large amount of patience - sometimes you can be lucky and it only takes a few months, but in most cases it is very often a task that takes years. This is especially the case when a specific desired combination of colour, interior and special equipment is required. Such a very specific vehicle of this category was recently offered to us - after 5 years of detailed search - through good contacts and we bought it: a very rare Mercedes-Benz 420 SL, which even among the 107 SL types (only 0.9% of all 107s built had the modern 420-V8 engine under the hood), which has been running in the Wuppertal region throughout its life and has only had 2 owners. So enjoy the first picture of this vehicle as we do! And if you too would like to find your dream car, let us help you - we are ready with our services for collectors and those who want to become one.

A Tribute to real Values

The appreciation for quality, stylish design and authentic manufacturing are an attitude towards life. Just like the joy that comes from owning classic cars, acknowledging traditional craftsmanship, or collecting memorabilia from the past.
