Success Story: Mercedes 280SEL Leaves the Georgia Collection!

As some of you likely know, I am helping to clear out a large collection of salvage and project vehicles from a private owner. You can read more about the collection here in Part I; here in Part II; and the latest update in Part III, readable here. We also have a dedicated post on the trucks in the collection viewable here. The Mercedes-Benz 280SEL is heading to California to help keep another example on the road and will donate several good components, including a full interior. Here are a few others up for grabs:

Please contact me about any of the cars and trucks in the photos for more information. And remember, if you have a classic that needs a new home and would like to sell it here on Barn Finds, you can read more about getting it listed here!

    That’s a long haul to Cali! Good job!

    He’s parting it out? Is there any chance the new owner will sell the differential?

      Not parting it out – taking the interior and then likely flipping the rest. Has a good motor and clean title, so I suspect he’ll do OK on it.

    I inquired about the 53 Chevy, and I don’t live very far away, but 10K for that truck is too much.

      Mike, you picked one of the few vehicles the seller just has his mind made up on. Most everything else is selling for a negotiated price. Happy hunting.
