Anybody know of good mercedes junk yard in Philly?

Was junkin' around this morning...went to a bunch of salvage places but found only one 123 chassis and NO Mercedes diesels at all. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

heres a good link for junkyards, theres quite a few in philly... but I don't know of any that have mercedes

http://junkyarding.freeforums.org/north-east-us-f4.html

Best place for w123s is Crazy rays in MD, its 2 hrs from philly, but it might be worth your time if you have a long list of parts you need. Theres one in Jessup md and a better one by the Key bridge east of baltimore.

Where was the 123 chassis, and how rusty was it?

Completely struck out in the south philly junkyards off Passyunk... affectionately known as the greasy triangle. Went to Shortys and several others... I need an axle and a turbo air cleaner housing for my 300d.

Let me know if you find anything Mister B.......I haven't had the time yet - but I've been meaning to hit some local yards up.

IIRC, the junkyarding forum indicated that a yard up in New Ringgold is the best for MB parts - but that's not in Philly.

I've called the yard in York and emailed them - but no response yet.....I suppose I just need to stop by and check out the inventory.

Gonna try KOP tomorrow, Deloren on the JY forum mentioned a place up there that might have a one...

I've never been to New ringgold, I'mm googlemap it.

If I wasn't such a sissy, I man up to the 5 hour roundtrip and goto crazyrays east of baltimore, the always have W123s.

There is a guy in Havertown who does only European cars.

Continental Auto Parts (google him).

He doesn't do the self serve pick a part thing and his yard is very small, but he is very knowledgeable about MBs and a nice guy to boot.
