RE: Mercedes 190 Convertible
Wow. For rarity value that's going to be hard to beat. If I was weaker on self-control I'd be making you an offer, even if driving a windowless 190 convertible from Scotland to London would take some doing...
As it is, in your position, I'd go looking for a crashed or MOT failed 190E, and transfer the window glass and powerplant/gearbox over to your rare beast: the injection engine is just so much nicer. What would worry me most about that as a project is the condition of the roof, and how much it would cost to replace the fabric - one of my car park neighbours has a 1981 BMW 316 Baur convertible, in stunning condition, but he can't drop the fabric part of the roof down for fear of it cracking and ripping.
