Post 1975 280s w116 FS Needs TLC $1,250 O.B.O

Hello and thanks for taking the time to look at this thread, I have a 1975 mercedes 280s that I am selling. I purchased this car for $850 USD about 10 months ago hoping it would be my dream project car and I have put about another $1000 into it since then trying to get it fixed up. It has new tires and new front brakes and it was running pretty well up until about 1 week ago when the fuel pump went out.

As sad as it is for us to part with this car..my wife and I are no longer in a financial situation where we can continue to invest in it and unfortunately we are forced to sell it at this point.

Perhaps there is someone out there that would like to fix up this vintage beauty or maybe someone has a w116 just like it and they need some extra parts.

I am asking $1,250 USD....I will however consider ALL offers.

Problems with the car that I am aware of include:

A stuck lifter or floating valve....(a ticking noise)

Fuel pump is out

Needs new shocks

Windshield wiper motor needs replaced

Back seat needs repaired replaced

There is considerable rust on the floor-boards.

Reverse gear no longer works

Over all the engine is in fairly good condition and if someone were to put some TLC into this vehicle it could be a real amazing ride.

Myself and the car are located in Denver, Colorado in the USA.

Thanks much
