speedo in MPH odometer in km? (sounds fishy to me)

I am considering buying a '70 280sel that shows 13000 on the odometer. So I figure it is really 113,000 (body looks this old), but the seller tells me that these 280s came with metric odometers and that the mileage is really only about 70,000 miles since the odometer is actually showing 113,000 km.

Can anyone comfirm or deny this?

Thanks a million!!

The vehicle might be from Canada or something US laws do talk about converting a spedometer by putting a MPH cover over it.

Get the VIN and call MB. Find out where the car was sold.

Good luck
