Detailing Dirtiest Car Ever! First Wash in 37 Years Mercedes 280 SL

  • تم نشره في 2019/08/18
  • This was one of my favorite details and films I've ever produced. David has been asking his 83 year old father (doctor who work in NYC and travels back and forth to NJ daily) to pull his 1969 Mercedes 280 SL out of their old garage and restore it so it can be passed down to his grandchildren. David asked if we could pull the Mercedes out of the garage (where it has been for 37 years) and detail it enough so that it inspires his father to give the green light for restoration. Watch the step by step process of removing the mold, dead animals, dust, dirt, and oxidized paint back to life. Hope you enjoy the reveal :) -Larry

    All the son can think of is the fact that he or his kids are getting current day $200 000 car because as it states at around 15-16 mins immediately at the reveal, that the father agreed to restore it to hand it down.

    That's fucking fucked. They should restore it for the old boy to enjoy his last couple of years with his own personal history revamped.

    I can't remember the details, but these are dreadful cars to drive/own. I have driven the 450SL and when you put the foot down, there's a delay of 2 seconds and then it takes off. There was a case of one 280 that had a few famous English owners and they were not happy.

    Rode in 1965 MB sedan. Had wood and steel steering wheel, as a recall 48 years ago. The owner kept it in perfect condition. He was friend of my Uncle and Aunt who owned a beach house.

    I got my great grandparents 1977 Ford Thunderbird in November of 2018 which was sitting at the family farm since my great grandmother died in late '87 (it was her anniversary gift) but now I have it running, on the road just needs springs replaced after sitting for 31 years. All original with only 41,000 miles on it.
