The W110 has two advantages over its larger W111 brother: it is more reasonably priced and it is more economical to maintain. And there are two things it shares with its bigger alternative: it is as much fun to drive and good examples are as difficult to come by. If you look for a reasonably priced Mercedes to enter the "Classic Car Hobby", the fintail or Heckflosse will be up to the task and this e-book with COMPREHENSIVE BUYER'S GUIDE will help you to get to know these nice cars better.
Fully updated in summer 2015, it covers all 190, 200 and 230 variations in great detail. Both chassis number and data card are thoroughly explained, recent price developments looked at and the main paint and upholstery options mentioned. Superb recent color photography might help to find the right car or serve even on occasion as reference in a restoration project. The book finishes with full technical details, the annual production history of each model and a chapter about head of design Karl Wilfert, whose department styled the fintail cars. Very few still know of him.
