RE: 1988 560sec or 1972 250?
I am going through a similar problem.
I have a 1989 560sec with 164,000 and I just bought a 1980 450sl for resale with 63,000. I am thinking of keeping the 450 with 100,000 less miles and selling the 560 but................
The 560 has front airbags, seat heaters, backseat, abs brakes, seat lumbar and other modern conveniences but the 450 runs better and uses regular gas with better gas mileage. I think that the 560 would hold up better in a crash too. But the 560 is not a convertible.
If I were you, I might keep the 560 as it will keep it's value better and it's a better looking car with all of the safety features.
