RE: Choices choices!!
The merc is a W110 Four Cylinder?,It is extremely Rough,and looks like it was a taxi cab in another life.For what it would cost to ressurect that car,starting with good second hand doors ( getting hard to find now ) Bumpers ,a good grill,paint..and heaven knows how bad the front end is,because there are lots of moving parts I would be inclined to advise you to look a bit harder and buy a better car,and buy that one for spares.But looking at it ,I would say that there will be very few parts worth using.Same goes for the beetle,it's not a rare model e.g. oval or split rear window, so it's just another beetle.
mporting a car into Pakistan would be a better alternative,if you wanted a classic like that one.I see them (w110-W111) for sale here quite often at give away prices.Look on the OZ ebay site to give you an idea of the prices.Why I suggest this is,because if you condider what it would cost in just parts for tyhe blue W110 you could buyt a car here,and then the labour involved to repair the car would be more than the cost of freighting a car from here to there.
.....and your wife won't go ballistic when you start spending bulk amounts of money on a money pit of a car.
