1968 Mercedes 200D questions
I'm MB19, a newbie to the forum and the world of Mercedes. I really like Fintail body type, and there is one on my local craigslist. I'm really excited, and hope I can get some helps here.
It's an one family car, and everything seems to be original with 156000 miles on it (though no services records not mentioned). New brakes. And always been garaged. It smokes, but runs and drives good. Asking $2500.
Is $2500 a good price? I've attached some of the pictures to help determine the value.
I'd like to know a few things about 1968 200D
1. How reliable is it? I'm planning to drive it 2-3 times a week (mostly local and some freeway)
2. What are the typical problems they have? What should I look for before I purchase it? And what should I give most my attention to after I purchased it?
3. How much it costs to own one? For example, maintenance, parts availability, etc.
4. How is the MPG? I'm just curious, I'm not going to be picky about the MPG anyway.
Thanks for the helps, and I really hope I can really make it my first Mercedes!
