Hello there, Benz World People. Have spent time here reading many interesting posts here before purchasing my new (old) Mercedes. Thank you for all of your shared knowledge, I have learned quite a bit reading what you all have to say.
In the driveway right now is a 1969 250 with 43,000 miles on it. The lack of big rust on it is almost shocking, as it looks like it was garaged for most of its life. It runs fairly well, but there are always a few more surprises waiting for you with a 44 year old car....
Points, plugs, changed all fluids including the gasoline and it runs like a champ. Next comes door seals, some brake line replacements, and hoping for a relatively trouble-free summer ride.
In the meantime, thanks for all of your shared knowledge.
