Ill be in town next weekend and will see about getting additional pics.
Len (sokolof) knows his stuff. Defo a 220s probably worth about $5-10K depending on detail condition.

Beautiful car btw, i have 55 220.

I believe they made less than 1200-1500 of the sedans with Webasto roofs. The frames/bows themselves command a hefty premium on their own from junked parts cars.

The ponton folks would be stoked to see this and hopefully an appreciative collector from their community will continue to show it the love it has obviously gotten so far.

Those should be very easy to find on eBay or any number of parts suppliers, or even from a member here for very little money...

Also, the right tail light lens looks to be upside down.

all being said the car is in very good condition and rare to find with the Webasto roof. Now, who is the target? A Mercedes lover and normally they know everything about the model so before getting it on sale do the following.

Change that white/orange light in the front, turn upside down the right rear light, repair the back drivers seat and get rid of that radio, either install an original one or just one of the radio wood panels with the 220s logo on it. The left fog light looks like is not the same colour as the right one

Don´t be in a hurry to sell it, who is looking for it will pay big bucks, also try to advertise it in Germany ( ? Gebrauchtwagen und neue Autos ? Deutschlands größter Fahrzeugmarkt.), they reach all europe and you never know if there is someone interested on it.
