On the 8th September 1967 he imported in back into the UK and then two years later on the 2nd November 1969 sold onto a Mr F R P. in Hampshire.
That owner changed the colour to Blue an owned it for he next 40 years! It was garaged but never used from 1988-2009.
Sold to Miss JCA P. in 2009 who never used it on the road during her ownership. In 2012 sold onto Mr A J S.
After this Herman came back to life – rallied through North and South America and East Asia.

A range of major works were initially done to bring it back to the worthy condition during 2012.

However, in 2014 it was decided to undertake a 2.5 year full “Body Off” restoration of the car.
This included taking the body off the power train, shot blasting it and repairing back to an as new condition; overhauling all the major power train components (including the engine); stripping all the seating and hood back to bare frame and re-trimming same to Mercedes original leather patterns and mohair hood/ tonneau; new carpeting and trim panels throughout; re-chroming all bright metal parts; and re-polishing all woodwork. Enhancements included new Autosounds Classic radio; lockable storage are to rear boot; stainless steel exhaust system; twin additional Kenlowe cooling fans; central armrest storage unit; electric font windows; and detachable rear wind deflector.
