Need info on 1968 250 4 DR Sedan

I hope someone can help me with this. I have the opportunity to purchase a very nice 68 250 4DR Sedan, and I am told by the owner that this is a "RARE" model. Can anyone tell me if this is true, and why would it be rare. I can find nothing on this model, I only find coupes, but not sedans. I don't think the price is unreasonable, he wants $600.00. Any information you can provide would be appreciated.

Don't think it's rare but I suppose that depends on where you are.

"The Mercedes-Benz W114 (and similar W115) "Stroke-8" midsize cars were produced from 1968 through to 1976. The W114 chassis used straight-6 engines and were sold under the "230", "250", and "280" model names. The W115 used straight-4 and straight-5 engines and were sold as the "200", "220", "230", and "240". The Stroke-8 models replaced the W110 Fintail models beginning in 1968 and were replaced by the W123 series after 1976."
