1950's 220 2dr in need of some TLC!!!

Hi, we have a very poorly 220 saloon 2 door, which needs a new home. This fine vehicle was driven to its current location some 30 years ago and since then has suffered somewhat with the passing years!
Can anyone tell us some more about this model?
Seeing some of the great restorations that have been carried out in the past, we wondered if anyone would be interested in making us an offer on what we have left of this once lovely mercedes [?]
We also have a 190sl convertable of around the same era, which whilst in poor condition is not as bad as the 220, I will sort out some photos of this should anyone be interested.
Any information or enquires welcome.
Thanks Mick

Ouch, looks like the tinworms have reclaimed that one. Too bad. I'm guessing the car is in the U.K. by the plates??
