Shofurlimo, I don't disagree with that logic in part. As a CCCA (Classic Car Club of America) member (MB 320s are all on Full Classic chassis) I understand the fact that many of these cars (any Full Classic - big Packards, ACD cars, whatever) are in collections of older members who are less internet focused whether they are here in the U.S. or in another country.
I am not sure of import figures for the 320, however I believe only about 36 of the 500K and 540K cars were originally imported and sold in the U.S. - the rest largely came here in the postwar period. My CCCA roster reflects 3 - 4 320s compared to around 20 - 25 of the larger cars. While international CCCA basically reflects U.S. ownership.
Dutchman, while this car may not be as exciting mechanically as a 500-540K, the Cab "A" is a great looking car, second only to a roadster in my opinion. If you are looking for one best of luck with it.
