project car help

I really like the late 70's s class and the older e class. im looking for somthing that will be a little easier to work on. I figure i would ask some experts. i need a smaller james bond looking car i can have some pride in. i am very open minded on which car to have at. I just want to keep the cost rather low so i dont have to settle when it comes to the finer details. any suggestions?

I am new to older mercedes so ant help would be greatly appreciated.

There were hardly any "smaller" chassis in the Mercedes lineup in the late 70's except the SL and SLC, perhaps the 280CE.

Mercedes did not market a "sport sedan" until the 1983 debut of the 190 (W201) series, the highlight of which would be the 2.3-16 twincam version, sold in the US during 1986 and 1987.

I have been reading about the 1990 190e 2.5 are they released in america? i would be ok using the 2.6 inline 6 model also. Is this a good foundation?
