Beautiful collection there. Two w114 coupes is awesome in any condition. I taught myself how to weld on the w114 coupe. Great car for that especially with what you have, does not seem that bad at all.
With the mold though, you might have to strip the seats completely to dry them out and treat them, which is actually not that bad of a job.
Great vehicles regardless
Thanks for the comments from a guy that knows.
Apparently it's going to cost me about another $300 to get the titles for these cars. The blue title will cost me $100, but I'm not sure I should bring that one back. However, it might come in handy, so I guess I should just pay up and get it. The the seller asked for $650 for the last time around, and I never haggle at these prices, but I did want to leave some incentive for these sellers to get the titles to me. So $600 for the blue and $650 for the black were the asking prices, and I dragged the vehicles home with Bills of Sale for $500 each. That seems to be the magic number for these low cost w114 cars. The white one was $500 for the car, and an extra $100 for the chrome 5x4.5/4.75/5 wire wheels that I was able to sell for $550 including selling off the extra wheel parts (net $50 for car plus trailering costs).
So I've driven a w114 sedan with a bad accelerator pump, but I have yet to drive the coupes, as I haven't even made an effort to turn the engines.
Dr. Eurocar's love for the w114 coupe has me wondering if I will feel like I'm cooler when I am driving a funky old coupe. So I'm starting to think that rather than fixing body work, I should clean out the fuel tanks and get the coupes mobile again.
Which first? Well, the black one is parked in front. I guess cleaning that tank, and putting trans cooler lines and some usable hoses on the car will be step one.
Any suggestions on whether I should make the car run before wasting money on fluids? Perhaps some compression tests first?
Hmm... Gotta get working on these.
