    Default Mercedes W 201 TAILFIN

    Hello Friends,

    Am living in Karachi.
    We have one Mercedes Benz model 1968 200D TailFin W201. Am looking for few genuine items which need replacment.

    a. Steering Wheel & Steering Column
    b. Dash Board Panels (Meters)
    c. Rear Lights
    d. Footboard Chrome Mouldings
    e. Front Half lights.

    Car is 55 HP 200CC Diesel engine and Alhamdolillah in operational order, but the items aboves have rusted out / broken over period of time. The car was parked for a very longtime and hardly used in past 4 years.

    If any one can help, guide am willing to travel and get parts from within Pakistan anywhere. Its a car having some legacy and we wish not to lose her.

    @capsat,

    The 1968 200D would not be a W201 (that is the 190E), your car would/should hold the designation of W115 (68-73 production).

    try calling Khalid on 03005150732 he is helping build a friends W115 at the moment and has sourced alot of parts for it. Tell Him Sameer gave you his number.

    Khalid is a (damn good) independant Benz mechanic, his skill sleave everyone at shahnawaz in the dust, and i tend to send all my mercs to him. He also can source out almost any part you can think of (from all sorts of places). You might want to give him a call before he leaves. he'll be on vacation for a week. During which time he'll also be sourcing some parts for my friends car.

    Have a word with him and see what he can do for you.

    Hello,

    From Mercedes Germany and the Global Mercedes Collectors forum, it was confirmed that the Tail fin I posses is a W 201. ( Everyone asked for Engine & Chassis number before it is confirmed that she is 201)

    I also agree that many in Pakistan & India know that shape as W 115.

    I happen to know Mehmood saheb (late) who was Merc King in Karachi till he died in 90s'. His workshop was opposite CAFE De Khan on Tariq Road Karachi.

    He was USTAD to 2 NUT cases who were MERC crazy as him. Khalid & Rafiq. Khalid possibly from Norther Areas, fair complexion a heavy built 5ft 6" fellow and Rafiq dark complexion under five feet guy.

    The number for Khalid is OFF I will try and get hold of him agagain sometime.

    Anyone who can help me trace - Rafiq?? Please

    best regards

    ok if you say your car is a 201 have fun finding parts for it. but how can one car have two chassis codes???? you have a W115 no matter which country you are in & no matter whatever anyone else tells you, the W201 is a 190 NOT a 68 200D. You r chassis code should look a little like this WDB115.115XXXXXXXX

    Sorry for being so harsh but i've not had my tea yet so i'm a little cranky at the moment.

    Easy

    Storm is right. The w201 is the 190.
    Post a picture of your car so we can be absolutely sure what it is.

    I stand corrected, that is neither a W201 nor a W115 like i earlier stated. it's an older model (it's a W110). what does you chassis number say? Please do a google image search for W110 and you'll see i'm right about your tailfin. It's a beatuful car, I hope you find all the parts you need for it as such cars deserve to be restored.

    @jinn

    if you PM me the VIN i'll decode it for you (if my starmark goes back to the W110 chassis), it'll tell you what options your car was ordered with etc..
