Bought a new headache

Since I aparently don’t have enough to do I felt the need for getting another project…

A Mercedes 170s from 1950, it is supposed to look like this:

Unfortunately mine doesn’t, restored frame and rebuilt engine:

Body in great shape, it has been stripped from paint and then left, so surface rust:

And loaded:

I drove roughly 1400 km that day, not fun with no Cruise Control.

More pictures from the pickup can be found here:

The Ford is gone….

And no, it did not die, it is sold….

I have used it for 60 000 km, it now had 302 000 km on the meter.

It has been to Russia 3 times, Ukraine, Poland, Germany, Denmark, Estonia, Lithuania, Lathvia and Finland 2 times. Have a good retirement!

You will be remembered:
