Figure I have been holding out on you guys long enough, so here it is:
Can't find the pics from the day I brought it home but I will post them up as soon as I do. 1979 350/350 Paint: 69 dark brown, interior 62r tan. Plan on keeping exterior original color, not sure what I am doing with interior yet. Floors were pretty much like any other 2nd gen when I got it (swiss cheese), frame rails were nice with exception of drivers side was a little soft right behind the rear leaf mount. Exterior body didn't seem to bad until I started stripping it down and found about 1" thick bondo in passenger side, and a crappy quarter skin replacement job on drivers side.

Disassembly well on its way

1955 Mercedes 220A. It belongs to the owner of my shop, I get to take time out from my job everyday to work on it.
