One of my favorite family cars over the years was my dads first Benz. A royal blue, 1965 Mercedes 220 SE Coupe (W 111) I drove it for two years at college. As far as classic auto's go this is one of the worlds undisputed Kings of Classic and with the dropping $$$ Europeans are on the hunt to find any example they can procure in the US and bring them home for full restorations. Mechatronik of Germany is one of the premier outfits to do just that.
This W 111 was upgraded with a current MB V8 Engine
Ours is sitting in a garage waiting for it's turn.
