Quick Hello 250c

Being familiar with old cars and being familiar with Mercedes (W210 E320) I went and got myself an old Mercedes. So I thought I'd say hello before asking for any help, opinions etc. 917 Aqua Blue/Blue roof over blue MB Tex. Very nice overall. I've added a Weber carb conversion and European lamps. Cheers

Very nice, these are getting more popular with the rising prices of older cars. Great color combo, enjoy her!

I agree. I've always been a four door lover (so much that I bought a 64 Lincoln convertible when I was about 24), and I still am a four door lover. However, the pillar less coupes are just so very cool. It makes me wonder if I should have gone for a coupe instead. They seem to be the ones everyone restores.

Looks like it will be a real keeper! Congrats!

Thank you for the compliments. Years ago when I was in my early twenties there was only one old car that caught my eye. W111 coupe. Now however, the top of my price range without selling my other classics would only net me a tired, beat up 220. While looking at pics online I noticed how nice the 114 coupes looked in European trim, could almost hold their own with the 111 I had admired for years. Here in the U.S. 114 coupes are dirt cheap. How could I not? Other than fuel consumption and Fed. side markers I can't complain about much.
Karl, I've been watching your thread for a little while now. From what I've seen your car seems highly optioned. Very nice.

Beautiful example. How has the Weber conversion worked out?

The Webers were basically plug and play. Just pulled the vacuum retard to mitigate a little off the line hesitation. I know the Zeniths can work very well but I'm already familiar with the Webers and it seems like a lot of these cars were parked because the average mechanic couldn't make the Zeniths work properly. I'm pretty much an average mechanic at best...
