On "Skid Row Joe's" suggestion, I pulled the car fax. The vehicle was serviced by the "Dodge" dealer. So I called the original owner who traded it to me and asked him about the purchase and badging. He bought it at a Dodge dealer. As "H-TownBenzBoy" suggested, the Pastor did buy a kit including the window sticker that says "Mercedes Benz Product". The Aluminum Alloy wheels are Mercedes, he switched out the center caps. The engine is the Mercedes diesel 316CDI, he added the grill with the 316CDI badge.

He did not tell me he bought the vehicle at a Mercedes Benz dealer. He told me he special ordered the vehicle. I made statements about it being a Mercedes Benz and he didn't correct me accept to say it was special ordered and titled as a Dodge.

I was wrong. I was wrong. I was wrong. I heard him say it was titled as a Dodge. He said it was a Mercedes Sprinter. He said it was special ordered, so I assumed that meant from the Mercedes Benz dealership.

I feel stupid now, but better informed. I was wrong...
You're not stupid. Like all of us you learned something new.

Your dealer has the title to that van, or a facsimile of it. I was of the belief that the Carfax, or the van's door jamb plate would provide key origin information as well.

I was shopping a used Mercedes-Benz the other week at Mercedes-Benz of Sugarland, Texas. I thought I might be interested in buying it. I asked to see a copy of the car's Carfax. The sales rep. told me to pay Carfax to see it, since the dealership wasn't interested in the expense of paying for Carfax. I told him that I would find a Mercedes-Benz dealer that did provide Carfax brand information on their used cars, and buy one from them.

I hope not - especially on future stock items from the dealership either. Not being mean or trying to deny a guy making a buck - but to me it is poor taste pushing your employer's vehicles in this venue.

I admire Jeffery bigtime for being a true vintage MB collector and renovator - just as I do you, babymog. Reading about both your different MBs and their restorations are of an immense interest to me. I just don't have the talents to do what you guy's do, it's just not in me. So, I admire living your hobbies through your shared writings.
