Default Re: Vintage & Classic Mercedes Benz Cars in India

I came across this picture in the Mercedes Classic Magazine. Apparently this model was officially manufactured in Brazil, a 220D. This gave me an idea of how one can modify a very bad condition car, need not be a Mercedes though.

Cheers harit

The pickup design looks totally out of sync to me though. Is it me or are they just too short. BAsed on the coupe wheelbase?

Well the pick up design does nothing but belittle the reasonable graceful lines of the 115 series saloons.

However I think the W 115 only came in a 108 inches wheelbase. Both Coupe and saloon shared the same wheelbase, do not remember a wheel base figure other than 108 inches for the 115/114 range of cars.

There is a similar car on sale in very good condition in Calcutta, but in Diesel, 200D . Just re-painted, horrible colour though ( my opinion)!!! And, going very cheap.

Spotted this rust-bucket W123 being towed in Andheri East. Is this car in a restorable condition that it is being towed somewhere. For all I know, the towing cost would be more than the actual cost of the car in as-is condition.

The Goa registered car is now in Delhi. This car I believe was ex Dilip and Shobhaa De, recently sold. It is featured in Gautam Sen's book, 'The Story of the Star in India'.

WOW, is this yours ? Wonderful, beautiful car. Especially LOVED the colour combo. (he he !!)

I have seen this car a few times in south Mumbai, near Horniman circle. Couldn't get my eyes off her each time.
