SOCAL- Selling my prized 1970 250C

Hello fellow MBZ enthusiasts, I regret the time is near to sell my baby. I am moving to Ireland and its a huge hassle to ship my car. A little background on the car itself...
This car was given to me by my father when i graduated high school (a grad present)
and that was 6 years ago. Since then i have been taking my time and fixing up the interior slowly (the seats were horrible). My dad painted the car 15 years ago but it still has a great shine to it. No fading or anything. The car has ALWAYS been stored in the garage. The car is a very low production number for this series. #000175!!!
The engine has been completely rebuilt and im willing to do a CLT (cylinder leakdown test) on the spot to prove the engines durability. The trans was replaced a year ago and i have the reciept. It has new Bilstein shocks and new isolators. The interior is very good save the back seats which i have but are not put in yet. The car has a blaupunkt cd player (i have the original becker europa). The A/C would work if i had an idler pulley and a new high side line from the compressor. The heater works well. There are no rust issues (its a california car). The car has newer tires and brakes. This car drives like a dream down the freeway. There is an offset woodruf key to advance cam timing by 3 degrees (help out the power a bit. I always use lead substitute with this car and premium gas only (helps the valve giudes). I am asking $1,400 for this car. Come drive it home, across the country, whatever. It will do it. I feel that is MORE than reasonable. Here are some pics. Please email me at or PM me if you are serious or have any questions. Oh BTW the car has 130k miles on it original. Ill even incluse a spare block and head (2.8 litre just like mine).
