Restoration Tale: 1929 Mercedes Kit Car


#1

My car is a restored Kit car – a 1929 Mercedes built on a 1970 VW frame and engine. A friend found it in a barn with chickens laying eggs in it, he bought it and completely took it apart but then lost interest and sold it to me. It took two pickup trucks and a trailer to get it home, after which I spent a year restoring it.
