1966 Mercedes W111 coupe

At Sam’s, we are passionate about restoring classic cars of any make or model, and we approach every restoration project with enthusiasm and expertise to help bring your car back to life. In this case, we received a 1966 Mercedes W111 coupe.

It came in for a paint job, but upon inspection, we found some surprises. This car had been in an accident in the past and was out of alignment.

It also had bathroom silicone repairs in different places. We took action to fix all the issues and bring this car back to its former glory.

We stretched the body back to factory specifications, repaired the badly-done previous repairs, and even made some parts ourselves. We opened up the body to repair the metal parts behind it, and closed it up after the repairs were done. These were the only bad things on this car that needed to be repaired. In the end, we gave it its shine back with an ivory yellow paint job with a black roof.

This W111 is not the only one we have at the moment. We also have another one under construction – a W111 coupe 280 – to bring it back to its former glory. We have already replaced around 50% of the car, and when the end is near, I will reveal all the pictures from A to Z. For now, it is still under construction. We also have another W111 coupe in for a paint job only (yeah, right). Let’s see what comes after removing all the paint down to bare metal. For now, it’s standing in line.
