How to buy a w121 190SL

Hello everyone,

My father's 60th birthday is coming up and I really want to buy a project (mini project) car that we can work on together.

Where can I go to start learning about how to find and buy one of these cars. I've scoured the internet for a couple hours and can not really find any good resources.

Most of what I see are fully restored cars going for between 55-70k. I'm looking to spend about half of that. I'd rather a good body and shot engine as mechanically my father and I have a lot of experience with mercedes.

I don't own one but I'm been considering it for years. I suggest contacting Bruce Adams. Do a Google search for "Bruce Adams 190SL" and you'll find his website. Great guy and know his stuff!
