My favorite parts were
"Engine is turn but was not start. All parts is in the trunk. "
"This car had a short production period. You will have a hard time finding a nicer survivor"
I'd have been curious to see the undercarriage and what kind or structural stability was added, if any. I wonder where one would but a custom convertible top for this thing ...
Totally agree. Is that really what he calls a "survivor"? I'm not sure this one has survived.
Pillarless coupes make decent convertible conversions, but WTF happens to the windows on a framed-window sedan? Oh wait... It's not a sedan anymore. The rear doors have been sealed up, but it doesn't look like longer coupe doors have been used, just the short sedan front doors with the window frame chopped off. I wonder how floppy those windows are without the rear guide. Entry into the back seat must be interesting. I'm guessing that they are just normal sedan seats, not coupe seats that fold forward.
If this was one of the versions of a w111 or w108 with the stacked headlights, I might have been interested, but I can't seem to fall in love with the w110.
My custom convertible SLC is currently having the top replaced. The lowest cost REAL price I got was $2600 to replace the top, and the old top was available as a template, which is a HUGE part of the job. Even in this case of having intact old canvas, I still had estimates of up to $5000-6000 for the job.
I wonder what this car's destiny will be. It looks a little similar to the insanely priced w111 convertibles. If not for the fins and headlights, perhaps someone who didn't know better might think it's the same.
