W121 190D For Sale -- Restoration Project
Found a 1963 190D W121 (I think.) for sale in southern California. I saw it for sale and stopped and talked to the owner who has had it for about 30 years. He started it up for me and it didn't disappoint. 349,000 miles on this little four cylinder diesel. All (well, mostly?) original. Straight rust free body as far as I could tell. A bit rough around the edges. Great restoration project, needs a lot, but could be a diamond in the rough. Great platform to start with. End result could be beautiful classic. He wants $10,000. Sounded like he would be willing to negotiate with a serious buyer. I should have taken a pic or two. If I see him again I'll see if I can get a couple of pictures.
If interested, PM me, I'll see if i can get more info for you.
