Now that's a nice one, a much better buy! In Canada $6000 for a running rust free 114 coupe is a bargain!

I only work 10 days a year now, but after 130 hours in Toronto working at the Film Festival i'm ready for a vacation.
If the wife's up for it i'll take off for Kitty Hawk NC this weekend stopping to check the '71 250C out in person.
I'm sure the wife will love the "bland" colour, matching her Mazda6 Sportwagon.

The car in the video looks good in the body.. Vut the engine is another story..
It sounds BAD !!
From start he needs to hold the rpm's by increasing throttle. It almost sounds like a diesel at some parts..
Also, he moved the camera UP quite fast when you see the rust in the trunk.
But, the car could be a good one. A small tune-up of the engine, and som minor rust-repair doesn't cost that much..

1991 W140 400 SE - SOLD !!
1973 W115 200 -For sale as project.
