Doesn't it have front trafficators?

I'm a great fan of old Mercs. I would like to pick one and do it up when i could afford it. I like the vertical headlamp models, don't know the correct model designation.

Edit: Yes i see the front trafficators over the front fender.

Great car v10 and in great shape. Only the two tone upholstery needs to be looked into. I would suggest that you contact The Mole as his is one of the best restored pontons I have ever seen. He also is an authority on pontons. Im sure hel help you if any help is needed.

it is the original colour for this car, All pontons have colour plate which is found on the inner right fender along with the chassis plate.my car was a DB 353 (Hellblau Met), which was also confirmed by my car's Data card which I managed to aquire from Mercedes Benz in Stutgart. Pontons had only three metaliic shades Lt Blue, Strawberry Red and Met Green. They were special colours or options. The colour during restoration was made by standox formerly Herbert Paint company a original paint supplier for Mercedes at that time along with Glasurit. I do have copies of the original colour charts which i will post tomorrow for your reference.

Yipee!! Im waiting to see this post. Way to go Amol.

@V10- Aha! so this was the ex Manjit Dayal car which was being advertised for quite some time. I believe his cars are restored well. Do tell us the whole episode on how you found the car and then what led you to buy it. It would make an interesting post to read i think.
