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. Check out the unreal price of $1,490!

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.

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 the picture below:

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.
