This was spotted by moralfibre being towed on the road as you can see. Ask him how far he followed it

Looks like a 190 to me. Maybe its heading to a spanking restoration and a new lease of life. Best of luck to the car.

The way it is being towed doesn't look like they are keen on restoring it.

Too Bad, must have been dieselised hence no takers. Otherwise looks like a perfectly restorable finny.

Saw this old Merc being towed on Inner ring road, probably heading to some workshop as it wasn't in a good shape.
