Here at Old Merc Guy I am as passionate about your old Mercedes (1968-1995 models) as you are. Having owned older Mercs myself and having used them as my daily transport since the late 1980’s, I came to realise just how hard it was to source reasonably priced, quality used spares for them. There just didn’t seem to be an honest, reliable supplier of affordable spares for older Mercs in South Africa, and so, in 2010, I established The Old Merc Guy, for all of us with older Mercs, with the intention of giving you access to reasonably priced guaranteed used spares.

I now offer a comprehensive range of guaranteed used spares at fair prices, delivered to your door. Series that I stock parts for are W108, W114/5, W116, C107, W123, W126, W201, W124 and early W202’s. Please follow The Old Merc Guy Facebook page as in addition to lots of interesting pics and articles, all cars that come in for stripping go on there too.

To view some of my available spares please click on the Spares page, alternatively please contact me on info@oldmercguy.co.za to check availability and pricing of what you’re looking for (remember to give your location for the purposes of a delivered price). I can also be reached on my mobile 0780088781 during office hours (Monday – Friday 8am to 5pm).

In addition to spares there are always a few classic Mercedes-Benzes advertised for sale by their owners on this website.

I’m currently also working on the development of an “Old Merc Guy Approved” supplier database. The idea is that regardless of where you are or whether your Merc needs a service, panel beating or an auto electrician you will be able to access, through this site, your closest reputable, affordable and passionate supplier. Exciting stuff indeed.
