Thanks so much Erik, feerocknok, KCM and wbain, but the previous owner says its has never been touched nor changed/renovated the car. The serial numbers stamped in front of the radiator cant be seen by now due to corrosion, but I'l try my best to restore it so we can decipher the numbers. It seems the numbers are in excess of twoo digits according to benz guide on serial numbers. But I'm pretty sure, this sedan is a mix of W111 and W11o features. fenders and headlights are all original and intact plus the double bumpers, and fintail chrome trims that we see in W111.
KCM, what youve seen in the interior picture ( horn ring ) is my other W110. I'l upload more pictures of this "hybrid" benz that I found. This mix has a diffrent horn ring from the 1965 W110-colored dark green. Thanks

I definitely think it is a 1965 to 1967 200 that somebody fancied up with W111 trim plus some. The previous owner may have never made changes, but somebody before him did.

Did you ever look for the serial number on the frame rail below the air cleaner? This is the number I would take as gospel as it is stamped directly into the chassis. Data plates can be changed.

It's a 110 with 112 chrome added

The most important difference between the 110 and 111 is that the nose of a 110 is shorter from the front edge of the front doors forward. The rest of the basic 110 and 111 bodies are identical. 110s were originally only four cylinder diesel or gas. In '66 and 67 they stuffed a 2.3 liter six into the 110 and called it a 230. This was accomplished by moving the radiator forward and inside the cowl to make room for the bigger engine. There was a remotely mounted tank to fill the radiator, as in the 230sl.

All 111 and 112s were sixes. which is why they required a longer nose.

The bumpers are 111 or 112 as is chrome trim on the tail fins. The chrome strip along the sides and over the rear wheel wells appeared on 112s only.

The tail lights and, of course, headlights, are 110. The black painted wood on the dash is also 110. 111/112s came with varnished wood veneer dash panels. The knobs on the dash were used in all 66' and earlier cars.

From what I can see of the engine compartment, my guess would be that this car is a '66 230 with a four cylinder engine dropped in. The 200 badge on the trunk was changed to match the new engine.
