Fintail’d: 1962 Mercedes-Benz 220SE

You know what 10 grand cash with get you at the new car showrooms across this country?  Nothing.  Zip.  Zilch. Nada.  Not even a stripped out power-nothin econobox from an emerging region.  Even the most basic cars are quite expensive when you get ’em fresh from the factory.  But head over to the used side of the world and suddenly 10 thousand smackeroos can get you something that makes you look like a drug kingpin or a warlord from one of those emerging regions.  Find this 1962 Mercedes-Benz 220SE here on eBay offered for $9995 or best-offer located in Palm Springs, CA.
