Hello, good evening and welcome....to this classic Merc, first owned by journalist David Frost at the height of the swinging sixties.<br />
<br />
The gold 250 SE was bought new by the broadcaster in 1967 and it is unclear how long he owned the stylish motor.<br />
<br />
It is possible however that he was still using the Merc a decade later in 1977 when he conducted his now iconic interviews with U.S presidential candidate Richard Nixon.<br />
<br />
The interviews, which were aired over four programmes, went on to form the basis of the hit film Frost/Nixon in 2008.<br />
<br />
His pristine coupe is to be sold by Historics Auctioneers of Iver, Bucks.
