even if you ignore the front part and just concentrate on the B and C pillar omwards, you can see the 114/5 shape. Also note the 114/5 type of door handles. Also note the huge space below the grille....maybe he left it for the cold air intake
This is only a 114/5 conversion to a 123 what about when people went about converting contessas to 123s...form the front it was very difficult for the untrained eye to realise it was not a merc... U-G- H

how could you also forget the chrome frame above the dood distinctively 115. the crazy owners of condeses ( contessa and mercedes) the front was a mercedes and the rear a contessa. some of them would carry badges of contessa in the back and the mercedes grill in the front and mercedes wheel caps

v10 you are right the car is at the dri compound . there were two white land cruisrers there. your friend could have paid the penalty and cleared the car. i wonder why he did not do it. he can still get the car back the amount is minimal now. the cars might go into auction and then you would end up paying a larger amount for them as the dealers would get involved.

spot on amatmo that is an ML in the background. have seen the cars of iran rotting and gathering dust. in singapore also you would find cars gathering dust before they get scrapped. some of the cars look brand new.
in india it is only once in a while that the customs officers open their eyes.
