Can anyone tell me what this car is? Part II

Thank you to all that have been helping me figure out what my vehicle actually is. It was suggested I get the VIN number which I intended to do a long time ago, unfortunately it has been a while since I could get up to the other garage. I now have the vin and any other numbers I found on the car. Here they are....114.060-12-010739 This is located on the door plate along with 250/8. This number set is on the engine block 130 016 20 01 280 s/a. The build date is 1/73. Here is the link to my original post http://www.benzworld.org/forums/vint...-what-car.html

Again, any help anyone can give me in figuring out exactly what model this car is I will greatly appreciate! Thank you.

I'd love to see a picture of that door plate, 'cause the VIN is of a 1973 280, not a 250/8. Somethin's up with that car, it seems clear that is has an unusual history, as the engine is consistent with a 250/8 rather than a 280.

I'll get a picture of the door plate this week and post it. Maybe that will solve this mystery
