Looking to purchase my first Benz. Looking for suggestions.
I'm not only new to the forum but new to Mercedes Benz as well. I'm looking to purchase a toy and I find myself very interested in 1970-80 four door MBs. I particularly like the round multiple headlight models. I'm looking for something RELATIVELY reliable. As for my budget, I hope to be somewhere in the 5000 range. I don't know how possible that may be. I also have no problems investing in mechinical issues or upholstery. Is it very difficult to find parts or to work on those model years?
Being new to MBs, I don't know the models in that year range to well. I was hoping someone could suggest a model type and engine to consider.
I do like diesels very much but don't know how the reliablity compares to gas or if the benefits of one outweigh the other.
Thank you so much for reading and I look forward to hearing you response.
