 :)  Is it just me, or wouldn't this be a good buy for someone at   (5,990 Euros ) ? 


Yes, it has some anomolies, like the grill, engine is a mess, appears the windshield chrome is from another car?  But....all in all, lot of stuff is there or on the floor.   

I can't recall the last time I saw a 170Va with a sunroof  ?   from the images it appears a lot better than many we have been seeing in the US at similar prices with lots of rust.

Now that you mention it, there aren't many with a sunroof. I parted one out a long time ago, maybe I shouldn't have. I still have the sunroof if anyone is interested, but I didn't cut out the frame from the roof. I just took what I could unscrew. I would guess that the frame is wood? Anyone know?

frame is definitely wood (as on my 170DS).
