Yes you can build a Camaro from the ground up with new frames/bodies and parts everywhere. You can clone a Boss 302 and you can build your own 1957 Chevy and find all the after market parts you need.
But there are other, equally cool cars that you might take a fancy too and want to restore. Finding stuff can be a problem. My feature “Wrecked” might help you out with finding those parts.
I’m doing this in conjunction with listing on PartingOut.Com they pull together a lot of cars and many are southwestern cars, that means less debilitating rest on the parts you need. And that’s were I found this very nearly completed parts car.
This 1962 190 Series has a lot of useful parts. Why would anyone want to restore a car like this? It had classic 60’s European styling. I’ve often thought how cool it would be to have a fleet of classic 4 door sedans for taxis – weird? Maybe. But I like lines on these
This one has a lot great parts, fenders, doors and where are you going to find those bumpers and that chrome around those over-under headlights.
I’m not seeing much in the way of engine parts…..
Series 190 was in it’s second year and came in two flavors – gas and diesel both were 4 cylinder. They have tons of room for carrying passengers and luggage. Oh… they made great taxis…maybe I have something there.
There were a lot produced of these 130,554 190c and 225,645 190Dc and I’m betting only a fraction of those made it to U.S. soil.
Check out the this car @ 1962-Mercedes-Benz-190-Class at PARTINGOUT.COM.
Thanks for reading.
