Mercedes-Benz W115 220D Pick-up Restoration

Featured Restoration: Mercedes-Benz W115 220D Pick-up

The Mercedes-Benz W115 pick-up, a very rare beast in Europe. They were assembled in Argentina in the early 1970s and very few make it over here, in fact we only know of one, in a museum. This one is in for full mechanicals so that the owner can use it as a work truck, just as intended, but we’ve plenty of rust issues to sort out on the underside before we put the reconditioned/replaced running gear back on. ┬áThe truck will get new and reconditioned running gear, brakes, hoses, fuel tank etc, plus some engine work to improve compression and reduce smoke. ┬áThe body underside will be stripped, new metal welded in, including new sills, then a full prime and underseal to keep the British weather out.
