1975 Mercedes 280C for sale

Ok,
this is super low miles but the price is super high.
Plus it is after 73, no chrome bumpers, soft steering wheel etc.

What do you think?

Looks very nice, but as stated will need some going over. That seems like a whole lot of money for one of those. But it may be the lowest mileage example left on planet Earth. I purchased a 280SE 4.5 from Roy Spencer long distance and the vehicle arrived as described by him. And I still have it!

Not sure I'd go for something like that. About 5000 miles since it was bought in '76? Not sure I believe that either... Nice looking car though.

I would pass on it. Every piece of rubber should need replacement on the car. Cruise control and AC don't work.

I have no intentions of buying, i prefer pre-73 but post it here if someone is interested.

If I were searching for one, I would be very interested in this proven the mileage is correct but for way less than the asking price.


Some argue that higher mileage car and driven is better than low mileage but at the end whatever work is needed, low mileage car is more appealing to me.
Any model that is, not just classic.

I'd be interested in a low mileage car too, but the fact it's been sitting in someone's garage or storage for years leads me to believe there are many issues to be sorted out, including seized engine, rotted tranny innards, rubber mounts deteriorated, and so forth.

I'd rather find a high mileage car that had been meticulously maintained...

As for the link, I can say with certainty that I would LOVE to own one of those things. $1.44M or so to buy and restore though... Wow

Not a coupe, but I think the miles are low enough.

Instagram @derstrichacht for interesting W114/5 pics.

That price is rediculous, you could buy a restored one for 1/4 of that.

Very nice car. For the $25K asking price this car should be completely gone thru and ALL issues worked out.
