For Sale - 1979 280E German import, mom's old car
I am looking for a good home for my mom's old 280E. I have had it for about 5 years, drove it for 4, and have had it parked in my driveway for the last year (sorry, mom). She bought it 10 years ago from friends in CA who were the first owners. They had it shipped over from Stuttgard, it's got the maintenance book with german oil change stickers, etc. from the first 60K KM or so.
This '79 is a 4-cylinder 5 speed, unlike the US/Canada 6-cylinder model. I don't know a lot about it otherwise. It is currently not running, I got stuck on a possible carburator/fuel issue and time got away from me. The odometer reads 139K, but I believe it had a time where it didn't work (probably closer to 150). I just don't have the time, money, and room for this keeper, I wish I did.
The car is here in SW Virginia and would most likely have to be towed. I don't know a fair price for it so I am open to offers. I just want to find someone who will give this care the love it deserves.
This is my first post (on any forum) so I will have to figure out how to add a picture.
