Thinking about purchasing a w108 or w114
So i wanna pick up an old benz and im between a few, hopefully you guys could share your knowledge on these with me and help me decide which is right.
1) 1975 W114 280c. One owner, seems to be in perfect condition. Owner says its flawless. They want $4,900. The only thing throwing me off from this is the solex carb that ive read is extremely problematic.
2) 1972 W114/W115 220d. Female driven, New original color respray (looks really good) One small crack on dash, No A/C (compressor broke). I've heard people say these cars arent worth anything but i dont understand why. I like the fact that it doesnt have power windows etc. They want $4,500.
3) 1972 W108 - the ad doesnt say which model it is but there is a pic with the hood open and its a V8 so im assuming its the 280 with the 4.5. the ad isnt very descriptive but the car looks really good and the owner said it runs good and a/c and everything works. They are asking $5,000
Which one of these do you guys think i should go with. For some reason i like the simplicity o the 220d but i love the look and the V8 of the w108. I dont know. Is there anything specific id have to look out on for each of these models?
thanks in advance
