rare find or not worth finding

Found a 1960 m-b 219 4 door. Not familiar with the value if any. Is all there and no cancer rust. Not sure if it runs. Interior fair. Is it worth pulling out of the weeds??

You'll find plenty of info here: Mercedes-Benz Pontons (1953-1962)

If you choose to let it go, let us know. Someone here or on our ponton group may be interested. If you decide to get it, join our ponton group. We've got over 700 owners there. Link is on the Ponton Page given above.

Make sure to get it checked out by an expert.

I wish I had listened to this advice when I bought (waaaaaaaaaaaaay over priced) my first classic benz.

With what I learned from my baaaad experience I was able to get an excellent deal (I feel guilty, Canadian customs insists I paid more) on a much better car. Ray, I hope you're not reading this =)
