That looks to be a very well looked after and cherished Mercedes. Must be nice to work on too, well made with plenty of space to get to most of it.

Great cars. I have a 1960 190. Your car looks like the same colour as the 190 I thrashed around East and Central Africa from 1961 to 68.

Have you got it in yet Cole, have a look in around the door jambs and see if they are 'lacquered' or just dull hazy paint. A friend has one, 1961 vintage,27k original mileage.
Apparently the paintwork in around the doors and boot and bonnet was just hazed on to just colour the interior.
