Sad sight. One beautiful classic rotting away in someone’s front garden. Apparently, the owner imported this car from Germany in 70s, and due to impossibility to register it, he simply abandoned it, which is a story I heard many times.

IMO it’s pretty bad to do that, because that way one classic got destroyed. This car is in really bad condition, but with serious investments it can be restored. This looks like facelift model, post 1973. I believe this is 220D model, with really small power, only 60 HP. This yellow color makes me think that this was a taxi.
