The Mercedes-Benz W110 is a classic sedan from the
mid sixties and has gained the nickname Heckflosse (German for
Fintail). Technically, the rear fins were called peilstege (German for
sightlines) 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.
