Thanks for the quick replies, everyone.
The car itself is in Augusta, Georgia.
The asking price is $1,000.
In talking to the seller he said everything works (AC, New plugs, filters, the power windows and locks, sunroof and AM/FM Cassette). He said the paint is fading and could use some love, and the driver and rear seats are cracking (the cars 30 years old - I expect this)
The one thing that I don't know about is he said it needed a Fuel Distributor to run perfectly. I'm still trying to get a clarification on what exactly he means
1) It doesn't run but needs this or
2) It runs, but could be a lot better
A quick check on pricing led me to between 1,200 and 1,400 for a brand new one or about 500 for refurbished. Having never touched a MB before, I had to find out what the heck a Fuel Distributor was and how to replace one.
I like simple - I'm not a mechanic but through high school (way back in the day) I made my money buying, fixing, and selling old mustangs. So I understand the basics of automotive mechanics and can turn a wrench.
And now, I'm going to take all of this and find the 107 forums
