1952 220 W187 sedan, complete car
« on: September 24, 2012, 02:13:45 PM »
there it is, a '52 220, sitting in the sun and rain since the beginning of time (or at least since the 70s).
I am helping an older family friend find this old gem a new home.  It looks like a complete car, headlights, grill, chrome, lights, door handles, wheels, etc.
known missing: hood ornament, front window glass, keys, trunk handle (might be inside the trunk)
odometer: 57,000 km
status: good for parts, not good candidate for restoration project.

we would like to sell the complete car.  If that doesn't work out then we can start selling parts. 
I need some help in evaluating what its worth.  offers?

need help, how can I open the trunk without a handle?

There is also a 1952 W191 170DS sedan, partially disassembled.  covered storage since 1963.

Regarding opening the trunk.
The handle has a square shaft that slides through the spring catch assembly on the inside.
If only the handle is missing, then you should be able to see through the hole and determine if the square part of the catch is still in there.  If so, anything that will engage that square should work to twist it a quarter turn and then lift up the lid.  if the interior catch is also missing, then you probably just need to pull the lid up.
I imagine it is similar to the handle shown in your other posting for the 170DS since that handle is in place.

Is the trunk accessible by removing the back cushion of the rear seating?  I don't remember if there is a wood partition separating the two areas.

Yes, it would be wide open if back seat is removed.

tx scott, it was pretty easy with the right size screwdriver.
still working on trying to open the hood. (frozen cable)

Car is in a suburb of Vancouver, BC
ziad is right, there is also a 1956 W180 220S, unibody on this one is in really rough shape.

correction on odometer, it shows 6,777 km.  which is either wrong or 106,777 km.

How to open the hood.
You have to find or make a hook like shown here and then crawl under the car.
