FS: 1972 250c with steelies or Monoblocks

Hello all, my 1972 250c is being offered for sale. Lots of thoughtful work has been done to the car. I've created a highly detailed posting on craigslist: 1972 Mercedes Benz 250c for sale in good condition Please be sure to ask for anything I may have overlooked. This car is an excellent driver from Tampa, Florida. Continue to refine or simply enjoy it as-is.

Looks very nice. Keep it and continue to make it perfect over time. If you fix the windshield, windows, odometer, reinstall the AC compressor, etc I bet you can fetch a lot more for this apparently rust free w114. I think rust free ones are dying off pretty quickly.

Thanks, Fonzi
Life is too short to drive a boring car. I do love my car. With our new additions to the family, it is tough to get time to play in the garage. I've been steadily improving these little (and they are truly minor) details but any 40+ year old car will have several 'opportunities' for improvement. Part of me hopes it doesn't sell because the stuff that needs done is all easily accomplished with a little patience.

Thanks much, @ColoRich ! I really love this car and want to make sure it goes to someone who really cares and understands how rare these cars are becoming.

This is The Car I would want in 5 years when I can afford it, (my SEC is killing me). Literally what I imagined I would look for in color, care, and details for 114 coupes.
GLWS, though I secretly hope you hide this from the wife and keep working on it and improve it haha!
