Mercedes 250 CE w114 - help

Hi everybody,

I am thinking of buying a '70 Mercedes W114 250 CE to daily use, but first I need to know some things about this car. I know it is a confortable and reliable car, but I think the problem is the fuel consumption... is it too high??? What is the fuel consumption in l/100km?
And if i need any piece to replace in the car, are they too expensive if I buy them new from the Mercedes?

Sorry for my rudimentar English! I'm portuguese...

Fuel consumption is high but they are otherwise modern and reliable enough to make daily transport. Suspension and brakes are common to many other models so no problem there. They can rust and the heater motor is a big job to replace.

Check out which is a /8 owner enthusiast website. Members there can offer you more advice.

With best regards
