71 280SE 3.5 (4 Speed)

Okay, it looks like I found a cherry example that has been very well maintained. It has full service records from day one.

Question, if I find a solid Mercedes mechanic is it out of the question to put 7-8K miles per year on this car?

They're asking a little over 20 grand; it appears that there is zero rust and I will go visit the car in eight days. Any thoughts?

My father drove a 71 3.5 back in the late eighties for six years. He drove it to work four days a week and the only thing it required was oil changes. Of course, maybe he was fortunate.
