1966 Mercedes-Benz 200-Series

1966 Mercedes-Benz 230 W111 Fintail (Second Series)Production of the new 230 models commenced in July, 1965,at the Sindelfingen plant. Visually, the second series models had the front indicators relocated from the top of the front fenders to below the headlights. At the rear, the tail lights were enlarged and squared off and the chrome trim was revised (including the removal of the chrome trim from the trailing edge of the tailfins). The W111 models now featured air outlets with chrome trim on the C-pillars. Inside, there were very few changes except all models now featured reclining front seats, and the 230 had a central armrest in the back seat as standard.Chassis codeYearsModelEngineNumber built
ENGINETheMercedes Benz M180 was bored by 2mm, creating a 82mm bore × 72.8mm stroke and displacement of 2,307cc/141ci). All models received the new 2.3 L engine.
I purchased this vehicle with every intent to fix it. I purchased all the missing parts to make the vehicle as complete as possible. All the parts are original Mercedes-Benz parts. The car comes with the original air cleaner and the missing chrome that belongs on the rear of the vehicle. All the glass is perfect and the tires are brand new. I'm not an expert in these cars by any means but all the parts appear to be there, even if they were removed from the car. It also comes with a few new parts that were purchased for the vehicle and never replaced. The rotors and brakes were replaced on the vehicle and it does roll freely. I have never attempted to start the car because I know a car this age needs to be prepped properly prior to starting the engine. I replaced the exhaust hangers since they were missing. The interior if fully in tact but needs an overhaul. There are a couple holes in the floor pans. I took photos of them to demonstrate however the actual body itself is completely SOLID!!! All the door, trunk, and the hood close perfect like the day it was purchased. The paint appears to be original from what I can see. The only real issue is the original title was signed and it will have to be corrected through Trenton, New Jersey. I spoke with Motor Vehicle and they provided me with the proper procedure to get it fixed. With the title, the car has to be considered an abandoned vehicle and Trenton will correct the issue. I've never attempted the process but I was told it resembles what a tow yard would go through after a car is abandoned. This might vary if attempting to register the car out of state. I've included pictures of the original title as reference.
