That makes sense. I would go that route too.

Ask for a cash settlement in which you keep the car.  It will be a little lower than what they offer you just to total the car and take it but then you can have it fixed yourself.

I agree with this.

So after really trying to save the car, the insurance company ruled that it was totaled.

Darn, I would have thought it would be a simple matter of welding in a new rear panel. That's really unfortunate.

So after really trying to save the car, the insurance company ruled that it was totaled. I can't believe that for 55 years it hadn't been hit, and now it's over. I guess that's life. This doesn't mean the end of my fintail story. I will most likely get another one, AND PUT IN BRIGHTER TAIL LIGHTS.

In the mean time I'll list some parts that I couldn't let go to the crusher (radio, armrest, center seat cushion...).

Is there anything that you have request for? My interior is pretty shot.

Vehicles / FREE!!! W110 Restoration Project
« Last post by LWB250 on November 10, 2019, 03:06:23 PM »
Here's the deal:

A guy I know bought a W110 on BaT earlier this year and sent it and two parts cars he purchased to a restoration shop in eastern TN. He's gotten caught up with his work and simply has no time to keep up with the project, so he's looking to get out of it - FOR FREE.

You can PM me for contact information if you're interested. You can see the primary vehicle in it's current condition here:

off topic... I had a nice front bench seat same color / material in my garage as a place to sit and read a service manual. Danged cat decided it was a good place to sharpen his claws.  -CTH

I love front bench seats! Hopefully I can find one for me 220 in the future.
