If it's gonna have to be blue, then this is blue I could live with. (minus the sticker on the door)

For the purists among us. 1st owner car, with a very charming color spectrum.

Not outstanding at all, but parked inside a garage for the last 13 years. No rot, probably available for just over 1000 euros..
It's a running car.
Could be a good base for a (rather cheap) rebuild.
Not sure about the chairs though. Was that purple ever supplied in a light blue car?

Hi Floyd


There are problems with that interior: if photos never show the bolsters (on the front seats) when the seat covering is velours, you can bet your last dollar that they are always worn or there is a large hole!  The door cards are upholstered in series II cloth (plaid pattern).  The clips on the door cards are broken, you will notice the M-B factory manual approach to dealing with this i.e. a screw!


You'll be looking with new eyes now

That was kind of what I was saying, with "this guy needs advice"
The car, to me, could be a great basis for a perfect restoration.
Regrettably, he has decided otherwise.
