i bought mine in 2001. If I have one complaint about this car it would be the carbs. After buying the car, I had them rebuilt buy an old school carb guy, he must have had a thousand carbs in his shed lol. anyways, he did a good job, but.... around 2006 had to have them redone, and now 5 years later they need work again. thinking about a conversion to be honest. Other than that, the car is great

I have a '72 250C that I am in the process of rebuilding(brake calipers, brake hoses, wheel bearings, tune-up, etc.). I have problems starting cold and am leaning toward rebuilding the Zenith carbs. Body and is pretty much rust free as is the trunk. I can't wait to get her on the road. Not going to use as a daily driver but as a cruiser on nice days so gas mileage won't be an issue. Good-luck with your purchase if you decide to buy her!!
