Up for sale is a 1973 Mercedes-Benz 220-D “resto mod”.

This car is without a question one of my personal favorite builds we’ve done to date. This car is a absolute great daily driver that gets tons of attention everywhere you go. And not the “Fast and Furious” type of attention either. From young to old, everybody loves a good classic, and that’s exactly what you’re looking at here. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t get a wave, honk and or thumbs up on my way to work, or just cruising around on the weekends with the wife.

And while this is a classic, and it does look amazing, this is a car that can be daily driven. This isn’t a car that you have to be nervous about leaving at the mall, or your apartment complex. You can drive this to work or school during the week, and clean up at car shows on the weekendall this while getting nearly 30 mpg doing so! I have just replaced the engine and transmission with a matching unit with only 78,000 miles. Considering the motor I pulled out had 298,000 miles on it before it developed a rod knockI’d say you’re good for while.

Thanks for looking, and If you have any questions about the car, or would like to see additional pictures, just let me know and I will respond right away.
