5k: Vintage Bomber: 1967 Mercedes Benz 230 W110

 The Mercedes-Benz W110 is a classic sedan from the
mid sixties and has gained the nickname Heckflosse (German for
).  Technically, the rear fins were called peilstege (German for
) and weren’t designed for aerodynamic stability, but to help
the driver find the ends of the car when backing up. A decent running/driving example with nice paint for less than $4k seems almost too good to be true.  You be the judge.  Find this 1967 Mercedes Benz 230 offered here on craigslist for $3300 located in Fresno, CA. Tip from FuelTruck.

This 230 sports basic steel wheels, vintage badges on the grill and California black plates — what more can you ask for in a cheap mid 60’s sedan?  Mercedes produced over 600,000 of these tanks and you can find plenty for sale, but the price/value ratio on this one looks good from afar.

The W110 230 is powered by the M180, a 2.3 liter single overhead cam
inline-6 cylinder engine that makes 120 horsepower when
equipped with twin Zenith carburettors.  It would be nice to see a 4-speed manual transmission, but at this price you can settle for the automatic.
