way over priced, but could be some good parts at least.

1967 Mercedes Benz 250

fonzi - want to go get the grill badges?

There are a few parts I could use if they are in good shape.

Let me know if you are interested in looking at it.

I think they said they would sell both the cars they have there for $1500 each, maybe it was $1800 each and $3000 for the pair. I have found that most of the parts century motors offers are overpriced, and kind of like "I don't care if ifs a perfect bumper or a rotted out one, it's $250/bumper." And as a result, I have been very selective about what I buy from Century Motors. It's a little out of my way to get there, but sometimes worth it.

What's with the wrong carbs and the valve cover vent? blow by?

Seems odd for 46K, maybe 146k? rest of car does look nice. The head rests are rare.

Are you simply pointing out that:
- the blow by hose is not connected to the air cleaner?
- the blow by hose is not in a position where it would even easily be reconnected to the air cleaner?

It seems like a nit-picky detail, but I have to admit that when I was working on my dual zeniths on my 1970 250c, connecting the blow-by hose enriched the mixture significantly, making it easier for me to simply dump the blow by down under the engine with the plumbing hose that was attached to the blow by hose. I would like to think that a simple valve adjustment and/or new valve seals would fix that.

Are those Webers? They aren't Zeniths. Nice headrests!
