wow. That is really amazing. How much would it cost to completely restore one of those cars?
To disassemble it down to every last nut and bolt, restore/rebuild everything to factory specs, including all the labels, tags, and identifying marks on the frame, you're probably looking in the neighborhood of $150k or so, possibly higher. That's to turn it into a reference-quality, Level #1, concours resto trailer queen.
jees. That is very expensive, and if you get the parts directly from MB, it will probably cost double that.[:D]

My cars:

BLACK 1996 S500 (W140) - Sold

BURGUNDY 1989 560 SEL (W126) - Sold
