Wow. W111 coupe prices must be higher than I understand. $37,000 bid on the last auction either means nothing or a car that seems to need a total interior overhaul, paint (due to big crack in the hood which is no reflection), a big dent in the rear bumper... Going for $37,000 ? I have seen similar coupes in the $16,000-20,000 range but looking beautiful. Maybe I'm dreaming. I guess this one is relatively special with the v8, but wouldn't the w112 project in California be more interesting than the v8? Ok. This one is certainly in better shape than that.
I will start keeping my eyes peeled for w111 and w112 from now on.
My dream car is a classic sporty five speed (stick+overdrive) convertible that seats five. If, you want 70's-80's Mercedes tuner wheels, let me know.
