eBay Listing: 1967 Mercedes-Benz 230S Station Wagon

Classics  /   /  By Tony Piff

If the words “African barn find” and “Zimbabwe vehicle registration stickers” don’t stimulate your imagination like an ivory backscratcher in the eye, then this filthy fintail station wagon is probably not for you. Mercedes didn’t build a factory wagon in the 1960s, but this period conversion looks like a natural evolution of the “heckflosse” form, and all the funky exotic details just add to the charm.

It’s cosmetically rough, and the mechanical needs are no doubt substantial (and expensive), but just think about the reactions you’d get showing up in this thing at the local break with a vintage longboard on the roof!

Nine Mercedes-Benz wagon conversions from the 1960s sold on eBay in the past two years, averaging $13k to $23k. This one has obviously lived a storied life, and if the new owner gets it running again, I can’t imagine the stories would ever stop.

    I have several of these Universal fintail station wagons and I am always looking to connect to other owners.
    Contact me for networking to get out cars restored and/or saved and maintained.

      Hi,

      I’m a big fintail nut and have two, 66 w110 230 auto, running and a 1967 w111 230s manual, not running. I’m going to put them up on ebay soon. Are you interested?

    Hey Chris,

    I am also an Universal Enthusiast, living in North-Germany, having 2 x 1967 W110 200D:
    One in nearly best conditions, with matching numbers and great history, only 1 Owner, run in Seattle for the first 15 years, than saved over 30 years, in last 2 years full restored from the german IMA-expert;
    one in good shape, run in Danmark for the Mercedes Maindealer in Kopenhagen – we are still working on it.
    What IMA cars do you have?
    Regards Harald
