Post Project 65 Heckflosse 190c

Hi there, I am new here and have just bought a 1965 Heckflosse and thought I would share it with you guys. It has a story with it (as i'm sure they all do) but this is a real "barn find" in a certain respect. I got this car from Portugal (on portuguese plates) The last owner bought it 23 years ago with the story of it being a car that had escaped the war in mozambique (I have the mozambique orig reg doc) hence being right hand drive. He then stored it in his fathers garage where it has been ever since!!! His father sold up and the car had to be moved outdoors in december last year and probably wont have lasted to long with portuguese heat etc. My intentions are to try and MOT,register and then do a full restoration on it. I have noticed that the wheels are different to most of the pics I have seen and wondered if anyone could shed some light on there origination or indeed if they are correct spec and just an upgrade or a different wheel for a different countries spec??? All advice on parts and specialist on this type of car would be most welcomed as I am sure I will need some help with certain things on this car. Any ways enough waffling let me know what you think.

All the best Newbie Stephane

Well here's how my '65 has looked for a few years now with some bundts on now. Now it's time for a new color, satin black this time until I'm ready to do some body work and rust repair then go back to original color. Just ordered the paint so I'll start prepping and probably spray it in a couple weeks. I just picked up some newer SL wheels for my SD but who knows , they might go on here if it's not to much work. Later

This is mine. Its an M-110 powered 1928 Model A RPU. Its an 82 motor with the injector bungs welded shut and an intake from a 72 280C. I might have made a few other modifications.

Hello chaps

Newbie from Blighty here. Proud recent owner of a w108 280 SE. After a lifetime of Lancias and Alfas, I had to find a 'sensible' car that I could get two car seats in the back for my boys

I cannot believe the engineering quality you get with these beasts!
