Well Michel, it'd be another car for Mark to have to spend money on. I hate to be critical just about every time a 6.9 comes up for sale, but this one again bears the hall mark of a neglected car, and one that will require money to be spent on it, to get it into a more acceptable condition.

So far, the bid is up to $3K. Add cost of panel repair and repaint, there being a fair bit of rust at the frontal edge of the roof (it looks pretty nasty), plus this and that, and something else, and you could soon overcapitalize. One aspect has aroused my curiosity - wheels. You can only see the one, but the shape of the lip seems to indicate that it is a 15" Bundt or, alternatively, a different type of 14" Bundt - maybe Italian made, maybe a different to normal German brand. Somebody ought to go and have a look. Regards Styria

I'm slowly learning to limit my projects! :eek:;):D

The owner is a great guy who's too busy at work to tackle such a project. I was never consulted about the ad content and unfortunately it's not exactly perfect.
The car does have rust in the sills and wheel arches as you'd expect from a Euro car. But having the HC engine in the navy colour is a rare and very attractive combo... And I can confirm it really wants to face the opposite direction if you're careless with the throttle!

They are definitely 14" Bundts and I never looked twice at them so maybe it's just how the pics were taken?

Hi Mark, if you're being apologetic, don't. There is no need for that. I am fairly certain that you'd agree with some of my observations. Those wheels - hmm.....strange. As I said, either 15", or not the normal 14"ers or, last but not least, maybe they need a wash - I might be getting confused by, perhaps brake dust ? It will indeed be interesting to see how much it will sell for.

Also, I wasn't aware that the racing division of MB designed the 6.9. If my memory serves me correctly, Mercedes did not have such a division in the late '60s or '70s for that matter. Regards Styria
