Canadian French W114 custom ride for sale

As we are all aware this might not be everyone's cup of tea but here it is for sale.
I have nothing to do with the person who sells it, just found it by a fluke.

Love it or hate it.

That seems like the right thing to do with the w114/115 sedans in my opinion, especially if you can take a cheap car and make it worth $15,000. I wish I would be able to find out the actual sale price on this one to determine a top value for a well customized w114/115 sedan.

I agree; there's a w114 for sale that I went and checked out for $2000. With a little engine work, fresh paint, and a few little things it could easily be worth over $10k with maybe $5k of work done to it. That is, if they really do sell for $15k.

Oops, I guess I didn't do that quote right. I typed the second paragraph.

Canadian French W114 custom ride for sale-imageuploadedbyautoguide1405629594.082564.jpg

The front of mine definitely needs to be lowered a bit to look cooler.

It's up for grabs as I have found other cars to learn to weld on. I now have four < $1000 cars that are projects outside my garage and really must go. This sedan just needs the accelerator pump / carb rebuild and an exhaust. Sure it is rusty, but it has completely solid floors and starts right up.

I really dont think this car will sell for any where near $15k....

- Color: Cream color with custom, 2 tone vinyl wrap
- Wheels: 17x9" & 17x9.5" Fifteen52 Alexi custom wheels
- Suspension: AccuAir E-Level air suspension

These mods are all what the younger crowd goes for, most don't have that kind of $. Those that have $15K to spend on a classic Mercedes want a classic look.
