Search for a Finnie
I have started my search for a decent finnie (W110, W111) car. Ideally I'm looking for something that is decent as far as cosmetics but might need some mechanical TLC.
I don't do bodywork but I do do serious detailing/finish recovery, so I could deal with tired paint but not a paint job or panel repairs. I have very strong mechanical skills as a former mechanic, so that's the part I would be strongest at as far as where a possible car might have "needs".
I have no preference of gas or diesel, I'm more interested in the body style itself.
I am familiar with these cars having owned a W112 a few years back.
I put a listing in the "Wanted" conference but figured the vintage people are all over here, so I might have better luck here. Plus stuff turns over so fast in there if there is no activity on your post it disappears in a heartbeat.
If you know of a possible candidate for me, please feel free to drop me a PM.
