i definetly dont have the cleanest ride but thats because i ve been over seas for the past few years and its literally collecting dust. i might venture to say im one of the younger enthusiasts out here ??? know not a lot of young guys into these pieces of art.

thnks.

yes it is a 1970 300 SEL 6.3L.

suprisingly the suspension isnt shot. its just been quite some time since its been fired up. got it back in 2002, drove it home and around town for a while, then i was sent over seas and havent had a chance to drive it since then.

it did run and drive. but its about time for a good service. problem is parts seem so hard to come by.

but right now it is down for lift pump....the one by the back tire. it would crank but not fire. eventually i traced the problem to deteriorated fuel hose. unfortunately the fuel hose is of an odd 11mm (???) size. the local auto parts store sold me there only remaining stock but informed me due to the odd size its likely they wont ever again carry it. so i installed the new hose and nothing. so i pulled hose off and realized the pump wasnt pumping.

so sounds like a burnt lift pump. i havent found an affordable replacement and a holley blue pump is quite tempting but in an effort to preserve the state of this car i havent done so yet.

Just purchased a '76 300D w115. Drives nice but I have to replace the stuffed interior. I am going to enjoy this car.

w123 1977 250

This car was my grandfather’s car which he purchased in Germany drove it all around Europe then got it shipped to Australia. After 27 years he traded it in for just $2000, I was 17 at the time and could not afford a car nor was i thinking about one. One year later I spoke to a carbie mechanic, who said my grandfathers old car came in the other day, I got the details of the people and offered to buy it back. It turns out that it was at the carbie place to get a roadworthy for it to be sold. They were going to sell it for $7000 but when they found out the history they gave it to me for $4000. This car is in original condition and has not been resprayed or new interior but loved.
its 30years this year. What do you think worth it

or maybe the needle got stuck, hehe. I used to have a 1974 240D that used to get its needle stuck at 60kmh, and I would not have any idea I was doing 100kmh, (while I was stell getting used to it). That was the car that started my love affair with mercs, will post pics when I find some.

Here are pictures of my beloved chariot - 1974 240D-
I bought it because it was only $AUD 500, which was all I had at that time It had been neglected, had started to rust, and the engine needed major service. It was slower than a bicycle, noisier than a truck, chewed a lot of diesel (wasn't common rail, one of the last ones made that way), and as smoky as a oil fire, but I loved it to bits, and cried when I was forced to trade it for a more practical car . From then on, I was in love with mercs, all of them!



This is the 'Good ' side:




My friends referred to the hood emblem as the 'Target scope' for roadkill


Th interior looks quite clean in this pic...


..But what it really was ...


This is the not so good side. Don't worry, the bulletholes are fake!!!


As one of my friend put it: "as a classic it's a beater, but as a beater it's a classic"
