1973 280C Coupe
Located in Syracuse, NY

I've had the car since 2005. The floors and exhaust system have been replaced. The 4bbl. Solex carb (Holley copy?) has been rebuilt. Carpets have been replaced with carpets from an SEL sedan. Five aliminum, 14" wheels are also from SEL. Kumo tires have good tread, but are aged. The odometer shows 110K, but it has not worked since I've had car.

Car is a pleasure to drive. I call it the "Autobahn Cruiser" It's a great car for the highway. I've made a number of trips with it: Poconos, Hemmings Cruise Night in Bennington, Thousand Islands, Buffalo and quite a few runs down to Watkins Glen.

The body, is quite solid, There are some paint bubbles on the rt. fender near head lamp and on rt. 1/4 panel below bumper.

There is some rust in the rt. rocker panel near the "A" piler. I have a new rocker, but never had it installed......welder now works for state making licence plates. There is also some rust in the lt rear corner of the trunk floor.

Seats and headliner are in very good condition.

Twin cam 2.8 inline 6 is very strong. Cold starts are hard , but once warmed up, starts easy and runs like a bear. There are no major oil leaks. Four speed automatic transmission works well.

The car does have some electrical issues after sitting for 2 years.... Horn, wipers and rear window defroster. Worked when car was last driven..... Electric rear windows are not working and dash lights work sometime. I have 2 Becker GP cassette/radios, not installed , but come with car.

I have had a lot of enjoyment from this car, but am getting ready to move and have too many cars. I want the car to go to a good home where it will be appreciated and enjoyed.

I have about $3,5000-4,000 into the car. I am looking for around $1,700/reasonable offer

I have always wanted a classic MB, born the same year as I was.
Based on the photos and description alone; if this car was in the southeast instead of the northeast, I would hand you your asking price today.
BUT alas, the shipping would cost as much as the car.

I had a 1973 280C as my first benz. It is a beautiful car. Mine was the 2 tone, yellow body and dark forest green roof with the green leather interior!
Loved it!
