1985 euro 280SL in NY area
I'm starting to think about selling the car. I began to work on it myself, but because I couldn't find the time, i asked a shop to take care of it. They seem to be confused about what to do, and in weeks, they only managed to unmount the k-jet, and they can't tell me much more now.
Anyway, the car has almost no rust, except a bit on the hard top. I have a new battery, new air filter, new distributor cap, rotor, spark plugs, oil filter oil change. Basically i did my home work when i got the car. The car run but lacks power, and suffer high idle in neutral.
I think mostly we are speaking about problems with the fuel delivery system. When i got the car, the o2 sensor was – and still is – disconnected.
The odometer reads 94,000 miles. The car is not in amazing shape and need a paint job, but at this price, if you can do basics on it, you are good. Nice AMG rims on it.
So here i am, after months owning the car, not very far from where i was at the beginning.
I am thinking about selling it, if i cant get straight answer from the shop soon.
If you are in the area and you have $3,200 cash – which is exactly what i spent on the car, you should send me a PM.
Pictures are here, from last summer.
Thanks for reading.
