New to the place

Hi! Im Joe from central Ohio and i have inherited a '72 220 Gas that my grandpa no longer wants. It has been sitting for atleast 10 years and is in need of some serious help. My father rebuilt the motor not long before it was parked, and is supposed to of only had 10k on the motor, and around 60 on the car. It does not look that way, years of sitting outside have not done the thing well. Interior looks spotless, paint is faded and theres some rust.

As of now, im looking around for parts and tips to see if its worth taking on. Im can do just about anything mechanical, my daily driver is an 88/91 BMW 318is that i put together in my own garage. It was a 91 318is and some kid hit me and totaled it, so i found a chassis and over a couple of months swapped everything from that chassis into an 88 325is [bare as bones when i got it] Only thing not swapped over was the gas tank!

Anywho, id like to bring it back to my place at some point to begin the work, even considering a swap of some sort, which would make most of you guys red in the face. Its a big task that looks to cost quite a lot of cash, but if theres one thing i know how to do its how to make a nice car enjoyable to repair

Ill get some pictures when i get a chance, may take a while but until then ill just poke around. Thanks!

Heres my 318, may be someones style... its certinly mine.

It's a real credit to you. Real style and elegance. Lovely if you could do the same for the Merc. Keep us all posted. Get us some "before" photos.
