1961 Mercdes-Benz 220 S
(barn find in the desert)

You are looking at a 1961 Mercedes 220S FIN TAIL that has been sitting in
the yard of the Tucson desert off and on for about 20 yrs.
Owner claimed it ran about 6m ago (not driven but ran) We poured
some gas down the carbs, ranked it over with a remote starter switch
and it ran for about 6-10 seconds The motor sounded good and didnt
even smoke from sitting so long. Thats as far as we got with it. So the
car is obviously being sold As Is as a project. But the good news is the motor
shouldnt be an issue and it wont need weeks of metal / rot / rust repair.
The Az desert has beat up the vinyl, lastic etc which is obvious, ut I believe
the white paint / patina is whats left of all or most of the original paint.
The car roll, urns and steers easy enough for loading onto a hauler for
shipping. Comes with keys and Az title.
Mileage shows aprox 42k on it which could be original.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION: Great body with minimal rust thanks to spending
most of its life in either CA or AZ.
Very complete for its age, ot 100% but pretty close.
Car wont crank with key, ut cranks easy with the remote starter.
Glass is really dirty and old with remnants of old window tint glue
on the inside. Front windshield has bubbles in it from age hard to see
in the pics.
Car comes with the original owners manuel, nd other books that where
in the glovebox, s well as a stack of receipts from 20 yrs ago or more
from the previous owners too. Its always nice to know as much history about
a car you buy as possible.
OUR 100% feedback rating is spot on, nd not just about parts we have
bought on ebay, ut also reflects ALL the vehicles we have sold here on
Ebay for ourselves and local Az customers.
We put more time and effort into our ads making it much
easier for the potential buyers to bid with confidence.
CHECK OUT OUR FEEDBACK, e sold a 1963 MGA last month for the sum
amt of $15k and our feedback shows that too, mong many other vehicles
just in the last few yrs here.

We try to show all the areas well in
the 100+ pics below.
Desert SW cars are time capsules and the best kind to own !
best we can tell its still the original matching #s straight 6
(which as mentioned prior we heard run about 6 seconds) Matted to
the motor is a factory 4 spd on the tree. Looks fairly complete
but Im sure will need some work to get back on the road esp to the
hydraulic systems including brake work.
Im confident the motor is good. The car was parked many yrs ago just
due to the fact the owner bought a newer car and just parked it.

take a look at the pics, lthough very complete even with the
front center filler for the bucket seats, ts pretty beat. It will need
a full interior job. When I step on the floors they feel solid from the
Inside as well as they look from under the car (see pics) Dr door latch
acting funny and doesnt always want to latch. The original red leather
is very old, rittle and sun beat.

the body is very straight and clean for being OVER 50 yrs old, ould be hard
pressed to find one this clean, his old, or the reserve price we have on this
German classic. Its far from perfect, ut it would restore easier then most this
old. All the stainless trim etc looks to be accounted for as well. Grill does show
some damage. Chrome on the bumpers, ot so good.

SUSPENSION: basically bone stock suspension that looks to be mostly
Original, ires are holding air too. If it really has 42k miles on it it may be
in better shape then we know about. Being as the car has been in Az and
CA so long, inimal rust if any underneath other then surface.

Check out ALL the pics below ----->
If you see other auctions are not showing areas under their cars,
who really knows what sort of shape its in. Dont find out
the hard and $$ way. At least our auctions show as much
as possible to potential buyers and bidders. Its amazing to
see other auctions with small dark pics, cant imagine trying
to bid on a car without seeing pics like we do in our auctions.

it may take a full minute for them all to load ifyou have a
slow connection, o be patient AND looks for the extra scroll
bar on the right side.
Az gets maybe 12" a yr of rain and Az very dry climate.
