Shold I look into this some more?
Guy near my office has a '72 250 for sale at $1200.00, the body looks good, no rust, the Rt front fender needs repainted, the odo quit at 98,500. It has a small battery drain that will kill the battery after a day or so. MB-Tex with one cracked area on the front passenger seat, and the A/C needs some work. Poss recharge?, seller says blows coolish.
I have some experience keeping a 450SL going, so I'm not a total newbie. I'm thinking about this for my kid, who presented me with a self-portrait at 88mph in the SL at 3:00 A.M. courtesy of local law enforcement . (Photo Radar)
Being a cold, heartless bastard(tm), I wonder if something like this would be more suitable to my wallet (guess who pays tickets).
From what little research I was able to do, it's a 114.011 body with a 130.923 engine. Does anyone have any more info or suggestions that I should pursue?
