Re: 1952 300
A friend of mine is restoring a 1952 300 sedan, and eventhough he has not touched the body, the doors, hood, and trunk, still close the way that I imagine they did back in '52. The engine still ran, although it did need some new valves ($127 ea.) and the wiring harness was replaced with a new one, as the old wires were starting to corrode. I went for a ride in it once, and I must say that the car definitly has a presence of its own, that can be matched by none. I don't know if it is the "best" Mercedes ever made, but it does belong in the top 10.
