I purchased a 1971 250 C nearly a year ago and I use it as a daily driver. It's a blast. Classy. It gets about 14 mpg. Handles well. Completely capable of getting up to 90+ mph. I really like it. I would like it to get better gas mileage.
I have had no problem getting parts for it, but I live in Los Angeles and junkyards are fantastic for parts. I actually haven't had to get much for it from a junkyard though.
