Hello! New guy here. Questions about buying a '65 190c...

Hello! I'm looking to buy an old 190c and wondered what I should look for. I'm hoping to join a local Mercedes Benz club, and several online communities as well. Any advice on these old cars is greatly appreciated, thank you!

If I were you I would do lots of research BEFORE you buy the car. Find someone local that knows the car and can/ will mentor you. Benzworld is a great resource and full of knowledgeable owners, but may not be nearly as active as you may need as a new owner. That is not a knock, just reality.You should check with the local MBCA section and see if there are any ACTIVE members that have cars like the one you want. If your section is like the one here in Houston it will be mostly a social club and of little help when it comes to maintaining, repairing, or restoring a vintage Mercedes.
I mention all this so you don't wind up with a car that you shouldn't have bought, and it is taking up space and resources, while you are searching for support so that you can drive your dream car. Good luck with the journey.

this one?

1965 Mercedes Heckflosse/fintail

our motto is "there is nothing more expensive than a cheap mercedes."

Have you always wanted a 190 or did you just run across one. the early finnies are cool in their own regard.

post pictures so we can help more.
