i love the old 300ds but i think probably a sedan that far gone is not a good candidate for restoration in terms of economics.

very low production means used parts will be difficult to find. a very lot of money to restore and you can buy pretty nice ones for 20 to 30k.

Thanks Tom, I figured as much....I have one of those friends that comes to me with all these "clean" resto opps and we can get the car for next to nothing but after the last go around I figured I would inquire...nice car though, I can see it all shined up and ready to hit the town....
