'65 Oil-burning Heckflosse Begs for Salvation

Hang man is coming down from the gallows and I don't have very long.

Few Silver Arrows tug at my heart strings with such ardor as the noble Fintail. I’ll even be so bold as to say I would gladly pass up a 300 SL for my very own Heckflosse. Where as the owner of a gaudy gullwing fears every door ding and stone chip, the big sedans stare down lesser autos with a stern glare. This particular piece of armament only adds to the lust with a four-cylinder diesel (not seized) and a manual gearbox with tree-mounted shifter. She’s nothing short of gorgeous, and she’s yours for $575. Get her before the scrap yard does.
Found on Craigslist.

    If nothing else it would make a most effluent LeMons gladiator.
    Theme? Paint it black, ditch the front bumper, raise the nose, and say hello to Team German Graffiti.

      I can just see the clouds of black smoke and the trail of wreckage behind it as the other cars slam into each other in the smoke screen.

      This doesn't look like the garage kind of girl, if you know what I mean.

    Were these old diesels reliable at all? It may have been a fluke but my grandfather purchased one of these new and had the engine go out at 45k miles.
