FS-1965 220 SE

I have come to terms that I cannot give the vehicle I bought a good place to rest and enough attention that it deserves. The vehicle is a 1965 Mercedes Benz 220SE. I recall the previous owner mentioning the this was a one owner vehicle that was meticulously loved with a service record about 3 inches thick. From my short time investigating the vehicle, I have discovered that the fuel pump does not work. I have not put a test light up to it to check for power. The engine turns over freely and the oil in the vehicle looks to have been changed prior to its hibernation period. The 220se does have rust in rear quarters of both sides. The interior is in better than fair shape with no holes or rips in the seats and the decorative wood on dash and surrounding areas looks good. The original radio has been replaced and there was some personal modification with some switches added to the lower dash area. The A/C fan works as does the horn. The engine bay is in a decent clean condition as is the trunk compartment. I have taken a few pictures to post, but it seems as though there is no attachment section. The pictures will be available upon request and I am open to take more picture upon further request.

Regards,

Jospeh

My apologies as I was logged out. Hence the fact I did not recognize the upload link.

Thanks for the reply. I will do my best to not offend anyone.

The 220se is currently at the largest auction site in the world. It is currently listed at a starting price of $1000.00.

Thank you

Where is the car, physically? That makes a big difference in whether someone is even interested; it makes little sense to ship a $1000 car across the country for $1500 or more.

Es könnte eine deutsche Rostlaube sein, aber es ist meine deutsche Rostlaube.

No offense, but if posters cannot even mention a general location after having been asked several times, perhaps we should follow the FS posting rules (few seem to read) and delete said threads?
