Refinish work

I put my heart and soul in that car when I did it over 25 years ago I did it to show off what I could do when I was young I really try and do every car better and better that has been my goal however with customers they always do not have the funds to do a job like this I wish I had the money for a 300sl at the time but I did not have the funds I sold the car to a car collector in Newport and he never finished the car luckily it never got damaged I sold the car because my father died and had to put him to rest I think my work is even better now but that's what I strive for when we got the car back it was a complete rolling car with headliner in and a little chrome installed but the whole car had to be assembled also some of the parts had to be found because of thieves that stole parts from the car while it was sitting around for all these years my good friendl assembled the whole car and did a great job I hope it stays in the family for along time and is handed down for the next generation If you guys have any questions about the history of this car let me know thanks.

You are rite. It is also a fact that there were only 5259 250se coupes built in the world, and only 1400 gullwings. Making the 250se coupes the least number built among the 220se and 280se coupes. It is also a fact that the 111 coupe and conv. were the last hand built true classics.

Amazing! I like the clean lines of the European version without the clunky license plate and side lights. I noticed you used 190SL chrome heater lever controls instead of the plastic originals-nice touch! I found some years ago and installed them on my coupe. Your video is giving me new motivation to keep moving along with my 5.6 stick shift coupe project.
