A once-restored 1961 W111 220 like mine languishing in a wrecking yard in Arizona, USA a couple hours away from me. It should be back on the road, as it doesn't seem rusty.


The outside of the car is in amazing condition. The paint would probably even shine up.


It had a really nice interior until someone destroyed the dashboard pad trying to remove it and broke out the windows.


Beautiful air conditioning unit.


I'd love to put the seats and door panels in my 220, but don't have the cash. I also wish someone would save the whole car, but don't know if they'd sell the whole thing.

I was at a wrecking yard a couple hours away from my house in Arizona and saw some fintails. This is the same yard where I scored the sunroof top. They've got a 1965 W112 300SE Coupe. Someone didn't know what they had.


Huge M189 fuel injected 6 cylinder engine with air compressor for the air suspension.


It appears someone already got the air bagged disc brake rear axle.


Sunroof mechanism is all there and doesn't seem rusted.


Rough interior, but still some scarce parts.

Parts / For Sale: Air Conditioning Compressor Bracket
« Last post by Squiggle Dog on May 21, 2020, 06:58:51 PM »
I'm selling an air conditioning compressor bracket removed from a 1965 Mercedes-Benz W111 220 with M180 6 cylinder gasoline engine. It should fit other cars with M180 engines such as 220/S ponton, 220/S/E fintail, 230/S fintail, and possibly 230SL pagoda.

It may even fit the 4 cylinder gasoline engines, but I do not know. It's not recommended for diesel engines due to it not having rubber spacers to absorb engine vibration.

This will fit common York compressors, however you can easily install a modern and efficient Sanden with the use of a commonly-found adapter bracket.

Comes with the required spacers and support bar. York compressor NOT included unless you want to pay for the extra shipping cost. I do still have the Mark IV air conditioning unit (not included), but you probably wouldn't want it because it's a bit rough and sticks out really far on these cars.

The price is $160USD plus shipping from Phoenix, Arizona, USA to anywhere in the world.

It turns out it was the previous owner who still had the door listed and forgot about it. He took it down. Mystery solved. Considering the price of the door, he gave me a really good deal on the whole car (a 100% discount). Haha.

Well, this is strange... This is clearly the same door that is currently on my 220. It wasn't on the car when I got it, but I installed it, and it's on there now. But, someone is trying to sell it for the unreal price of $1,490.00!

Picture from the ad:


Picture of the door before I put it back on the car:


Picture of the door on my car:


I checked, and the door is still on the car! I messaged this to the seller:

"Hi, do you know if this door will fit a 1965 Mercedes 220? Someone stole the driver side door on mine and I'm hoping to find one that will work. It looks like you're local, so I won't have to ship. A picture of my car is attached (before the door was stolen). Let me know if yours will work. Thanks!"

And then I attached a picture of my car with the door on it. It will be interesting to see what response I get.

as long as you've double checked that the door is really still attached to the car.

A few years back, I stepped out of the house in the early morning to drive off to work and as I walked to the driveway, I was wondering how my son (age 5 then) managed to leave his door on my wife's car open.  As I got closer, I realized that there was no door on the car at all.  Somebody came in overnight, disconnected the horns, battery and finally, the door.  A friend with a body shop had a replacement door back on the car before I got home from work that day. Cost me 400$.

Funnier than loosing the door was when my neighbor rushed over to my house a few days later to tell me that a neighbor had the door of his car stolen and I had to be real careful about locking up at night.  That was a real LOL moment. When I regained my composure, I told him that I was the guy missing a door.
