HOW I ACQUIRED A 1963 190b Mercedes Benz Binz Bodied Station Wagon
On September 15, 1984 I receive a call from a woman whose boy friend had recently passed away. She asked me make an offer on a lot of 5 Mercedes that were setting in her yard. When I found out that one them was a 190b Station wagon I purchased all 5 from the estate. All the vehicles were located in Fontana CA. and were purchased sight unseen over the telephone. Of the 5 cars only the 190b station wagon was operable. Before he died, the owner was planning to remove the engine and junk the station wagon. We saved the station wagon and junked the other 4 cars.
I ask her how she found me to offer me the cars. She told me that many years before when she lived in San Diego she bought a Mercedes for herself the seller had given her my business card. She had sold the Mercedes sometime before but she had kelp me business card. To me that’s karma. Bob Gunthorp
