Crazy interior 1960 MBZ

I found this website after searching cars in Cost Rica. It's mildly customized on the outside, but wait till you see the interior shots of this beast. Definitely not to my taste, but if you've ever wondered where the genitals are on a vintage Mercedes-Benz, apparently they are located just below the radio! (This one seems to be a girl.)

I apologize in advance for any permanent damage this causes to your sense of taste.

Who ever did the wood, definitely has talent. They went a little overboard for my taste. But I would be up for a more modest approach to this on my 108

Talented for sure! Did you notice it seems to be made from a single large log? You can see the center of the tree down in the footwell area.

i concur

anyone with this much talent should acutally make nice woodwork
that is definately custom, definately original, and without a doubt hideous

I am sure that took a lot of work to get it done but it looks cheap and lacquered to death.

I think we can all agree that the passenger is screwed in a frontal collision.

This car was up on ebay a while ago. It was relisted several times but never seemed to get any bids. I forgot what he was asking for it. I hope he didn't do this thinking he was going to make some money on the car. I seems to me that when you customize a car to this extent you do it for your own enjoyment, because if you try to sell it you'll find that you'll loose more money than if you kept it stock.
