advice on 1969 220 Mercedes
I have some questions and I figured someone here could help me. I own a 1985 mercedes turbo diesel which I love--and drive to and from college each day. I resently saw an ad for a 1969 220 mercedes in my local area. The current owner is only the second owner, and had the cars body restored (repainted/etc) and the car the owner only wants 1,100 dollars for it. The big concern I have is the mileage--it has 153,000 miles on it--which is a lot for any gas car (diesels thats brand new!)
How long do these cars last in terms of mileage, with regular maintance?
Are there alot of these cars around--I have only seen them in photos--do they have collectors value?
Is 1,100 dollars a fair price for a car with so many miles--and if not--how far should I try to bargan it down?
Could I expect to drive the car regularly--or will it be a high maintanance weekend only car?
thanks for your help (by the way the car is burgandy in colour)
