A ramshackle Mercedes that has rusted away in a garage for the last 30 years has sold for £60,000.<br />
<br />
After decades of decay the 1960 190 SL car was unearthed this year when an auctioneer stumbled upon it while valuing a selection of motorcycles. <br />
<br />
The dilapidated motor was found tucked away in a lockup in the West Midlands where it had languished untouched since the late 1980s. <br />
<br />
Despite its horrendous condition the car is worth the same as a brand new executive E-Class because of the booming market for classic cars in original condition.
