1972 250C Stored for years... what now?
Hello - I have an option to purchase a 1972 250C that has been sitting for 4 years. The owner says it ran when it was put away but doesn't do so now (though I haven't yet asked what he did to it to try to start it).
A few questions -
1) What issues could be preventing it starting?
2) What can be done to see if it's simply a case if fluids sitting too long or a deeper (and thus more expensive) mechanical issue?
3) Roughly what would be considered a good price?
Thanks in advance to those who care to weigh in!
