Bracq Friday Continues: 1966 Mercedes-Benz 200D W110

This next beast is a continuation of our Bracq Friday spectacular from yesterday -- a festival of the best stuff from French born automotive legend Paul Bracq.  The W110 fintail Mercedes-Benz was an evolution of the older W120 Ponton shape, but added little "fins" on the rear quarters and was more modern in its shape and less bulbous.  Legend has it that one of Paul Bracqs first job as an automobile designer at Mercedes-Benz was to design the rear taillights that you see on this next car. Find this 1966 Mercedes-Benz 200D W110 offered for $10,999 in Phoenix, AZ via craigslist.

  1. I’ve never seen one of these without the signal lights on the front fenders just in front of the windshield.
    We had one that we drove for a hundred thousand miles or so, then we took the trunk lid off and used as a pickup. Turns out that cow manure makes them rust in really unexpected places, like inside the dashboard and the A pillars. The car was still running fine after 30 years but the body disintegrated and we buried it when we filled in an irrigation sump.

    Great car though.

  2. I had a '67 200 back in the day...sure have climbed in (inflated) dollars. The car ended up in Fort Collins Colorado. I hope its still running.

    1. Not sure if this one is worth the asking price...but used classics from the 60s aren't rolling off production lines anymore...so the good ones are fetching big bucks from the now retired Boomers and wealthy GenXers and Millennials who want to look rich.
