My old Mercedes Benz 220s 1963
This is a movie that I made today of my beloved Mercedes Fintail 220s from 1963, I have this car from 10 years now,I felt in love with this model since I was a child and when I bought it the engine was damaged, and it needed a pinting, and I repaired the engine and send it to pinting, it needs another re spray now, but the mechanics are perfect. I´ve done all the mechanical repairs by myself, works like a dream!





Driving a mile in The Emerald Bullet 1962 Mercedes W111
Take a drive with me in the Emerald Bullet. I feel more torque with the 2.8 liter motor than I did with the 2.2 liter. My butt Dynometer says it is much faster. How does the engine sound to you? Is this what a 2.8 liter Mercedes Benz engine is supposed to sound like? Notice all the gauges and the clock working.

Restored Mercedes-Benz 1966 250SE W111
Email the builder Daniel Landeros: danmbz805@gmail.com Or call: (805) 612-0046 for info or questions about the build. With a production run that lasted just over two years, many experts consider the 250se to be the best of the iconic six cylinder Mercedes Benz W111 Coupes from the 1960s. With its seven main engine bearings and a six-plunger injection pump, it offered more power than the 220se Predecessor, and greater durability than the 280SE which followed with its narrower gaps between the cylinder bores. The 250se also came with a more elegant interior trim than the later 280se, with many chrome plated fittings that were replaced by satin silver finished parts to meet more stringent DOT rules. The luxurious wood veneered instrument binnacle also ended with the 250SE, and were replaced by a leather covered binnacle in the later cars. Restoration on the 250se in this video began in 1989, starting with a beautiful accident and rust free California car. First the body and show quality paintwork was completed by Steve Serrels, undoubtedly one of the finest painters in California. Chrome plating was done by Christensen Plating, famous for several Pebble Beach winners over the last 40 years, and the Macassar ebony woodwork was restored by Madera Concepts, best in the western hemisphere. In addition, every part that was available new from the factory was replaced. Particular attention was also given to the undercarriage and engine bay, completing this magnificent restoration. A complete restoration of this quality would cost in excess of $250,000 if done today.
