When I started this business almost ten years ago it was in response to being sick and tired of seeing ordinary people continually being ripped off by those wanting to make a quick buck off of them. I envisaged it being a spares resource where one could find real help from like minded people. A place where how knackered or how pristine your Merc is, was irrelevant but focused instead on a shared love for the integrity of the brands older models. In 2018 my daughter Bella joined the business as our online marketing specialist and we now run it as a team.

The Old Merc Guy has recently been featured in the U.K’s Mercedes Enthusiast magazine (June 2019) as well as The Herald newspaper (24 June 2019) and of course stocks a comprehensive range of fairly priced guaranteed used spares for most 1975 to 1995 Mercedes-Benz models that we despatch to clients around South Africa daily.

“Perfect!! Well priced, quick delivery!!” – Garren

Great bit of kit at a reasonable price. I also wanted hubcaps, but by the time I made up my mind to order the very nice set you had, they’d gone. Morale of the story – if you think you might order something tomorrow, order it today – before someone else does.– Anthony
