I've been lurking here for a while and thought I might make this my first post.
I've been looking for a decent older Mercedes for my daughter for high school. I came across a guy here near Lake Tahoe on the Nevada side with a 1959 Pontoon. It has a super nice body and interior. Its very dry here in Nevada. I spoke with the owner who said the car is not running. I looked under the hood and everything was there. This car had all four of the original hub caps. It's white with a red interior, and a manual column shift. All the glass is good and seats were perfect!
I'm not exactly sure which model it is. Looked like maybe a 180a. It a four door and of course I didnt check for dual carbs or the chassis numer, while I was there. I can go back and buy it if there is any interest here. I'm looking for a driver for my daughter, so this car is over my head.
I can take pics if anyone is really interested. I can buy it, have it towed home, and resell it.
I think I can buy it for $1,200. If I make a couple hundered, I'd be more than happy to go grab it. You could also probably resell it for profit, as nice as it is.
E-mail me at home or pm me if anyone is really interested. I will go and take pics this weekend, if so. Troy
P.S. Its not on my local craigslist or paper. I spotted it with a for sale sign in a driveway........
