This was the Merc which was shown to me. Said the car needed very little tin work. Little eh? Check this out!! Dont even want to get into how bad the interior was. It actually had no flooring.

Gogi? Is this the same one which was supposedly locked in the basement along with the LHD 115??

V-16,

U are absolutely spot on.

This is the Benz Brat is working on right now.

Its completely original Benz but taken a lot of beating due to climatic conditons over past few years.

JayD.

What place on earth is that in the pic.

who's storing such clean classics under wraps, yes sombody is sure so passionate about them.

These cars are in cochin itself Pavan. They are owned by a collector who has many other cars with him, too, but he pays scant regard to the originality aspect of most of them.Some cars are under wraps to protect Them from Dust and rats since there cars are convertibles and have no such protection as it is.

JayD, that particular car is this and its a W111. When I opened the car, a cat jumped out on me.

This was after the owner was told a week before that we would be coming to see it and probably pick it up, so the guy has sort of cleaned it up. Now scrapped for less than half the price I offered??
and no thats not me in the pic!!

The white 111 doesn't look too bad! Looks restorable, i wonder why they scrapped it?

Looks can be deceiving Jay. Believe me, the car was a complete junkyard. Only this was during the rains when I clicked it and that itself should tell you how bad the car could have been, having been left in the rain to rot.

I'd say no way! The grille looks very much different and also the badge on the top of the grille seems to be an Austin one!

That certainly isnt an Austin or an Austin badge. Im quite convinced its a Standard. Compare it with these two 10s. There are slight differences, but Im convinced it is a Standard.

Btw guys, my mech. told me today bout another mk1 herald here he was told about, red & white '62, single owner, done only 15,000 km, with manual too!

OK ok hold on......owner's said to be asking a bomb for it!!!
well i dont know if u are taking about the same car, but i saw a white herald
in hyd and very low mileage one if i remember correctly it was below 10000kms, i could be sure it was original speedo reading .. looking at the interior and the ignition key...pm me i could give u the contact no... yup the price quoted was obscene

Hmm...well I was told by my mech. (who was shown a photo of the car) that its a red & white one, am guessing its in the correct paint pattern of early Heralds.
And btw, sorry I made a mistake about the mileage- turns out its 1500 kms only!
Reg. the interior- do you recall the dashboard it had? Was it a black one with the big white-dial speedo or a wood-veneered one?

Yes I'll pm you for the contact no. (owner's?)
