RE: Need insight on a Barn Find - 1958 180b diesel
There were two rear door handles on the spare doors. Both were pretty pitted, but seemed to work. I also thought I saw at least on extra handle in one of the boxes. Is I have time to dig into it, I'll let you know.
Apparently, this car was a hobby for some guys who was friends with a Benz dealer/repair shop. Anytime they had ponton parts laying around, they gave them to him. Most of it appears to be junk, but there are defintely some useful parts.
I'll try to post some more pictures. As I inventory everything, I'll post a list.
I'm pending on the ponton list! :-)
