Nice 200 fin car. You don`t see them very often anymore.

A lot of those 200 engines end up in 190SL`s.

It's a 6-cilinder 230 as you can see on one of the pics, they were available from '65-'68.

Beautiful!
In 2008 a friend of mine with a '65 190D was invited to the New York Car show by Mercedes Benz to feature his diesel on a carousel - it was a preview to the 2008 diesel

what a beauty!

How do you maintain the chrome at such a pristine stage?
