From the ad: “1960 Mercedes-Benz 190b Kombi by Korrosserie Binz. Mercedes didn’t build their own wagons in those days, so they were special ordered through an outside coachbuilder. This was a California car that was purchased on the European Delivery Program. Unfortunately, it was poorly stored for years outside in LA, and now needs a complete restoration. Only 349 built, so it is rare enough to make the time and cost to restore worthwhile. $10k.” Binz Benzes are indeed rare and cool.
