Exclamation Help! Drowning in Vintage Mercedes Benzes cars and Parts!

Hi I am new to this forum as that we(my mother and I) have just inherited a little over a dozen classic Mercedes Benz cars from my 90 year old father when he passed away last month. He would not put his wrenches down until the day he died nor let go of the steering wheel either. Now we have these cars and a sea of parts (3 large garages full of doors windows, bumpers, motors, trannys, etc) all for very old MBs I have no clue as to what goes to what but for a few things and almost all for diesels mostly 1960s 190D and 220D. I have contacted MB classic Center in Irvine, CA. I also have every body style 4d sedan from 1960 to 1980s and interiors in fantastic shape HELP!!!! Contact me for info. Wish to sell all have no room to store and have to clear out in 60 days!!

sorry to hear about the loss of your father. it seems he had a great time wokring on these old beasts.

I'm sure there it plenty of people on here that would love to see photo's of your fathers car legacy!! sounds a treat!

good luck selling it all. I am sure there is some parts for a w108 I'd be interested in

Your father sounds like my hero. 60 days is not very long, maybe you should consider having an auction w a local auction house. For like 5%-10% they will do all the advertising sorting and organize the sale. When we shut down our farm that was really the only way to get everything sold fast enough. I would be interested in some w108 stuff as well, but it doesn't sound like you have time to sell this collection piece by piece. My $0.02.
