’67 Mercedes-Benz on a winter test run…

We are getting there. It’s been a long slog getting the Mercedes-Benz 230S roadworthy. It sat for such a long time, the fuel putrefied and fouled the entire fuel system. That meant taking the tank out, boiling and relining it. We double lined the tank and it took over a week to cure. We had plenty to do while we waited. It has been at Mint headquarters for 2 weeks now and we have mounted the Cibie Super Oscars, and made prototypes for some brackets and a center control console. We are spending time getting miles under our belt and making a few repairs in the process. Yesterday, we mounted a new fuel pump from Mercedes-Benz Classic Center – thanks Tom Hanson – and our new sisal cocomats from Cocomats.com – thanks Drew.

    You are a very safe driver.
    I understand you have done “donuts” with that car in the past.
    Maybe next time you could give us a demonstration. Oh,
    I just found my cherished Mercedes Benz brodie knob. It was
    rated “R” when I got it and I am sure it would be considered
    “PG” by today’s standards.
    It’s a sweet ride and rolls to a great song! Feels like a road trip
    coming on.
    Have fun. Love and Peace and long live Jimi.
