Want to buy - 190SL (1955-63) and W111 Convertible

Hi Everyone,

I am looking for two cars. Parts car to fully restored. All will be considered.

1) 190 SL 1955-63 Any Shape. Parts car to Fully restored. I know what the market is today. I am looking to purchase and ship to my family out of the USA (So, salvage/rebuilt title is OK). I actually prefer a car in need of restoration. We would like to save one of the few.....

2) W111 chassis in a convertible with the 3.5L engine. Any shape. Same conditions as above.... I want to save that hidden Gem that you have in your back yard!


I appreciate anyone who might have a lead on these cars.

My intent is to restore them, and we will be driving these wonderful cars again!

Please contact me at:

E55@cudaized.com or 786-683-5520 (Miami, Florida)

Yes. I like the rarer cars....

I have only recieved two leads so far. If they pan out, I will let you know.


On another note: I went to look at a 300SL 1955 Gullwing yesterday. It was a project car, well actually a PARTS car. Wow! How could someone let THAT car get in that bad of shape.
I have restored many cars in my days. Saved a few from becoming raw elements again. Rust or not....but that car was a piece of...@#$%^. It should be a parts donor. At least the few parts that were worth saving.

Thank you for those that have emailed or phoned me. I really appreciate that. I would like to rescue one or both of these cars, that I am looking for.

Yes it was sad. He would not let me take any pictures, nor was it for sale.
If anyone from Palm Beach remembers a 55 Gullwing in the news in the early 80s, I may have just seen the car. Apparently it was involved with something horrible.
