just got a 1969 230

SO, today I picked up my 4th MBZ... It is a 1969 230 I found on Craigslist for $400 Needs a fuel pump, and a muffler...

Has not been driven regularly for about 10 years, and it has been garaged most of it's life.. Picture is from the add, but as soon as I get a chance to give it a wash and wax, I will post a new one... Paint and interior seem perfect, but a bit dirty....

So, wheat is a good source for things like fuel pumps for this thing??

You'll have to clean out the old gas and clean the carbs, even overhaul them.

Auto Parts at AutohausAZ - OEM Auto Parts - Discount Replacement Parts, Resources and Car Care Tips is a good place or use the displayed vendors on this site.

The fuel pump was ued on many models from the late 50's to the mid 70's.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant
