1969 250

Finished restoring, just put on the wheels and lightly rolled the rear fenders. Now she needs stereo/speakers, maybe tint and to be lowered before I hit the streets.
The rims are 19"x8" et +32 front 19"x10" et +30 rears.

Luna Gaudi's 72 250,

Good luck with it...... Post up a few pictures when you can.....

This is a thread started a long time ago . I chimed in here in 06....Nothing has changed. I still own a 73 280CE and I still have had very good times with it....

Here is what I have done so far. Been working on it for about ten days now.
This is how I picked it up. Still needs all door seals to be replaced, new tires,
paint job to be buffed and polished, interior needs to be put back in,
engine needs detailing, needs new exhaust, the list goes on......
I will post pics as the work continues.
Here is a link to some photos of where I am now on the project. It is a Porsche color called Crystal Silver effect.

Ahhh, I certainly can agree with THAT statement!

My wife's 250C has been "done" for over three years but it seems like once a month I "find" something else to do to it.

This weekend I stripped all the wiring, solenoids, brackets, etc. off the the left fenderwell because the paint looked a bit ratty. Sanded, primed and painted the area. "Ya know, those brackets should be bead blasted and re-coated, maybe powder coated would look nice.."

It's a sickness I tell ya and I don't think there is a cure!
