This Mercedes was rescued from a mill throat

A Mercedes-Benz that deserved a better fate survived thanks to the fact that the demolition company workers fell in love with it, so instead of crushing it following the law, they looked for a solution to avoid having to do that with the C63 AMG station wagon.

The owner brought the car, imported from Switzerland, to Illinois Auto Parts City, but just a year later it was revealed that the import company had been eavesdropping on its past. They made him believe he had bought a C240 ​​and, moreover, during the annual inspection, not only did they notice the European chassis number, but it turned out that its emissions did not meet the regulations as well. After that, he was told that he had two options: either export the car from the United States, or destroy it immediately, he writes. Road and truck.

Since he was not willing to pay $8,000, converted into nearly 3 million forints, for the return of the 2009 Mercedes to Europe, its owner practically gave up on it. On the other hand, Auto Parts City employees are always interested in interesting cars, especially those that run perfectly – on social media, including On their Tik Tok channel They regularly document cars that have been rescued from being flattened and turned into pancakes.

They finally prevented the C63 AMG from being destroyed in the wreck by taking it out of circulation. In the United States, it can no longer be used on public roads, but in other countries it still has many years to go, as a buyer has since been found for it, so the problem of exporting it has also been solved.
