Pretty nice but not "excellent" condition.

Nice car but nothing outstanding. No sun roof, worn seats and cracking/delaminating wood.

It appears to have orthopedic seats.

As original owner perhaps you can explain the mileage discrepancy? I don't see any coco mats, just regular ones.

Paintwork looks nice! Price is high for condition.

Poster isn't the original owner, just saw this ad on CL.

Also, I don't see a discrepancy, mileage award for 156K miles, 5 digit odometer that reads 5836 = (2)05836 or perhaps (3)05836. Seller should be able to clarify, but doesn't look like they are trying to hide anything.

We had a 73 280 4 door for many years. They were nice cars. Ours had lower miles, a nicer blue leather interior, plus older style, ivory steering wheel and much better interior wood when we (finally) sold it in the early 90's. for $1800. So, I agree the price is high for what is there and doubt they will get any serious inquiries. Don

My sister collects cats. Another collects weird light fixtures that end up shocking me during their installation. Had I the garage space and time to do so, I'd collect old Mercedes', and maybe a cat, and spend the time fixing them up and such. <sigh>

I would buy that if I lived near there. I see a lot of parts I could use, or would like to have.
