1972 250C sunroof/ Engine swap project Here we go again!

Now that my 500SEC AMG/D&W Convertible project is winding to a close. I figured I should try a bit harder for my wife to leave me.

Just picked up a 1972 250C sunroof sitting for almost 20 years, some rust. Webers and mostly original missing factory Radio and Deck badge. Doubt its a factory Tuxedo, but still looks cool.

If engine is bad I'm going to repower with a inline 6 cyl fuel injected and manual 5 speed,,,Or LS based engine and 6 speed....

Should be at my door step Tuesday.....

Unfortunately, Car showed up and the owner was not honest!

He said it was a good parts car. Liar its a runner
Said it had some surface rust Liar it has none
Said paint was less than driver quality Liar--Better than driver Quality
Said some parts from interior was missing Liar- all parts in trunk.

Bottom Line this is an unmolested 250C with webers and all original except for a 20 year old repaint, No rust and fired right up..Sitting since 2002 indoors.

Fairly rare to buy a car these days and owner lies to make car sound worse than it is...Quite happy, But being this coupe is in such nice shape, would be a shame to fiddle with it...Then again Ill drive it for a while as I have never had a coupe with webers, something I always wanted.....

even sunroof opened with some coaxing...
