Just got a 68 230/8. One of my customers was gonna crush it for scrape. He sold it to me for $1. It had been sitting in the woods for about 10 years. So now i am trying to get it going. Remove the mouse nests and find my water leaks. Motor looks to be ok but we will get to it later. I have only had the car about 10 days so.. I have had a j-10 and a chevy so lets try something different. Neat little car yet seems to be forgotten. I have had a hard time finding info on it. Look forward to get more then enough advice.

Lifetime Premium Member do have a project on your hands. Welcome to Benzworld! You should find a wealth of information and feedback as you go through the restoration process. A labor of love, to be sure. The car appears to be very much worth restoring.
