1966 Mercedes Benz 600 Limo Pullman W100

I am not affiliated with the seller. Just found this on Craigslist here in the Chicago area. He wants $40k for it. I don't know how much these things are worth, but I thought I'd post it here for you folks to discuss/criticize.

It's a collecters item, thats for sure..
But, I'm not sure this is a good car.. Because a GOOD car, is worth some decent photos.
40k for a fixer-upper seems high..
This is a fix'em'up car.. FINN bil - Norges største bilmarked. Søk etter biler, motorsykler eller bildeler.
Stood in storage for 20 years (meaning noone had the time or money to fix it)
199.000NOK = 29k USD..

On these cars, the rules say "Buy the most expensive you can afford" If you can't afford it, then you can't afford to fix it up either" ..

Um the A/C compressor wheel looks rusty and doesn't appear to have a belt.

Is that DUCT TAPE on the air intake tube!!

By those things alone the seller didn't spend a dime on the car so it's worth a fraction of the asking price.

40,000?.....Pennies

Correct me if I am wrong, but $40K is pretty cheap for a 600 Pullman, isn't it?

Restoring one of these cars ranges from breathtakingly expensive to suicidally expensive. Let someone else do it, then buy it from them for $85,000-100,000 and you'll be better off. Or contact Karl Middlehauve in Waxhall, PA. He's an expert on these cars and sells them refurbished. I think his web site is www,mbgrand 600, or something like that.

First timers 600 advice from the experts:

M-100 Message Board - 600 Purchasing advice

You need TONS of money because everything on these cars is unique to it, the A/C and hydraulically operated seats and windows come to mind.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant

Anybody have contact info for the Chicago one? I might go look at it.
