    Looks like they lifted that kitchen from a Burstner elegance.

    My German is a little rusty but even these old converters were terrible with their payload.

    Zulässiges Gesamtgewicht: 7,49 t
    Leergewicht: 7,00 t

    Its on 24250 now, and I know for a fact the reserve will be much more than that, and would be very surprised if it was less than 50,000 reserve.

    Agree John, it does remind me of a Westmornin Star. That explains why I am attracted to it(y).

    Quite stunning. Wife hates the colours inside but i think it works. I was going to say thats cheap but its bids and reserve not met i think it translates to.

    Stunning.

    Ugly as sin, but beautiful with it. Majestic! I can see why you like it.

    If it runs as good as it looks, it would be great fun. Not for shrinking violets!

    That's awesome. @Snowbird Dave would you care to hazard a guess as to what it would take to get past that reserve?

    I would be very surprised if the reserve would be set at anything less than 50,000 Euros. If you consider how much it would cost to restore a base vehicle of that age to that condition, then add the conversion cost onto that, you are maybe looking at 6 figure numbers. It will not only appeal to the motorhomer that wants something different, it will appeal to Mercedes agents who want a show-piece. There are people out there that would be willing and able to pay a lot of money for something as unique as that, so as much as I would love to own it, am afraid its well out of my meagre reserve funds. I could of course appeal to the generosity of my good friend JJ for financial help and relieve him of some of the lumps under his mattress :D.
