It was bought by a doctor in S. Africa and shipped to Chicago maybe 40 years ago-- not your 72 280 six with Bosch EFI or 82 240 diesel it is a gas operated machine with 2 Zenith Stromberg carburetors and is most like an ancient taxicab and is maybe a scrapper or museum piece!

No pix It ain't photogenic after being in a garage for 25 years! I drove it over to the new house then and shut it down-- never had time to fix it while raising a family--I don't even know if an early unibody is roadworthy after that long a time. The engine and trans were rebuilt before I bought it and my son got a replacement european headlight assembly for the broken one it had. I drove it for a year when some guy turned left in front of me and trashed the R frt fender! I got a pair of new fenders and rust repair parts from the dealer and J.C.Whitney while the getting was good. It needs a home and i'm too old to mess with it! The boys are into jeep, chevy and BMW so they don't want it.

You're never to old to restore an MB. Esp if you have all the parts! Are you going to part it out than?

You say it's a 1968 111 body 250. Post a pic. It sounds more like a 1968 114 body 250. No one gives a crap if it is ugly, we just want to know what the car really is...

Currently: 1967 250 SL, 1963 220Sb, 1965 300SE Lang, 1971 280SE parts car, 1972 Alfa GTV, 1965 Alfa Duetto, 1993 BMW R100R
Past: 1971 250 C, 1985 300 TD, 1967 250 S, 1968 280 S,1981 300 D, 1982 280CE, 3 Facel Vegas, Borgward Isabella Coupe, Alfa 2600 Sprint, Volvo P1900 (yes), numerous less interesting Volvos, ...

Yeah you could be right the motor is probably a 114.920-10-000 001 like the manual says. It has the smooth taillights not the horizontally ribbed ones of later makes. There is no letter designation after the 250 on the deck lid ( such as s-super for supercharged or sl- sport liecht or se super einspritz or sel for 4" langer ). I guess cars sold in other countries don't have all the deck lid I.D. that the US cars had!
