Hello, I'm new to the forum and had purchased this little gem from its original owner with the intentions of sprucing it up and taking it to some shows and meets but it seems like I just don't have the time to make it happen so I'm making it available for someone else that might be able to give it the attention it deserves. Not sure exactly how much to ask for it, so for now I'll entertain reasonable offers. Based on my findings online I have a pretty good idea and would definitely know if an offer was a lowball offer. Sale would need to be local (Sacramento, CA), for cash sale only. No checks, cashiers checks or money orders. Clean title in hand.
Here are the details:
1971 Mercedes Benz 250 Sedan, inline 6 cylinder motor with two 2bbl carburetors, 4 speed automatic transmission (center console shifter), four wheel disc brakes and 4 wheel independent suspension. Recent tune-up, new radiator hoses, carburetor base gaskets recently replaced. The body of the car is in very good shape (NO cancer and very little rust), save for a few little door dings (normal), and a little spot on the left-rear quarter where the previous owner had a load of drill bits ding the panel from the inside when he went around a corner. This would require minimal body work. All chrome and trim still in good shape and intact, glass is good. Interior is in fairly good shape but does need the headliner near the back window tidied up. Car runs and drives but could probably use either some carb work or adjustment by someone that really knows what they are doing when it comes to carburetors. Good oil pressure, transmission recently serviced. I installed a cd player and replaced the old speakers but still have the original radio. Other than standard maintenance items this car is in it's original state and I even have original parts from when he had previous work done on the car, lol.
Here are a few pics. I'll get a few more and post them up soon. Again, reasonable offers will be considered and lowball offers will be ignored. Let me know if you have any questions and thanks for looking
