$3900 seems a bit steep I only paid $3500 for mine which was in pretty good condition.

Hey Mexellent, I know the bug has bitten you, but that price is way too high, and that car is not one of the more sort after models either. Example: I paid $3500 for four W111 one of which is a donor and enough parts to rebuild em all ( I got lucky) and one of em has a gullwing motor worth somewhere of about $15,000.00.
I'm already in the process of restoring one.
Point is; the profit is in the purchase, no more than $2k. Either that or less trust me. These are just pics of 1 2 more to go.
