Looks like your eBay auction got cancelled. Looks like a very nice car.

I'm curious as to why you are parting out what appears to be a pretty nice 250C...

Sorry, no body parts. Here is a repost just for Mercedes members. I deleted the Ebay thing.

This auction is for whatever parts you want from this car except the body and frame. Highest bidder takes whatever they want. You-pull-it in South Dakota. Presently buried in snow in my back yard but could be extracted. 426 491 503 513 580 050 G... 114023 12 7 0 07132 01052 Engine block: 280S/A This car came out of Arizona to Florida. I drove it from Florida to Watertown 2 years ago with no issues. It has a 2.8L cast iron big-six Mercedes with dual Weber carbs by old school upgrade kit that cost a ton when new in the 1970s. . Rebuilt original 4-speed transmission. Clock shows 78,000 but who knows. The beautiful white interior presumes 78000 . The curious aspect of this car is the combination of the big motor, factory A/C and crank windows. The body is mine. Runs OK with #2 cylinder intake valve missfire. Speedo "howls" when cold but I have the fix for $125.00. New tires. New Pertronix pointless ignition. No carpet. Aftermarket radio. Needs heater control and A/C hooked up. Oral history indicates this to be an unfinished project by a Florida geezer who let it sit in his garage for 15 years. I have not been able to determine how it got from Arizona to Florida but I may be the 2nd or 3rd owner. Price reduced $2000 since the misfire turned out to be a valve. UPDATE: Did an engine cleaner on it and is much improved. Maybe just needs to be cleaned more. I would do springs . New starter. Steering wheel is shabby but complete.. Extra new timing chain and gear set (not needed) and 4 correct extra ivory wheel covers. If you want the body, frame and title, add much more. Please check my "Other Auctions" for more cool stuff. Thanks for viewing.
So, Here's the New Deal. Send me an email at [email protected] and tell me what you want and when you can come and get it. Small parts can be removed and shipped by me (which costs a ton). The motor and trans are what you want it a proper 250C. If you want the beautiful original interior, you must take it all. The dash and console are available. You can only get the gauges if you buy them all. No smash and grab.

Entire car for $5750 until I sell the first part, then it will become the "Green Hornet". Cheap.

Actually I think that all US-market W114 cars had factory A/C and it was optional in W115 cars. The 2.8 motor was the only option in the 250C (although the 250 sedan had the 250 motor and the 280 C has the twink cam 6). Crank vs. power windows were the option. (as was leather, sunroof, auto/manual trans...)

Not quite. USA 250 114 sedans were 2.8 liter. Euro cars were 2.5 liter. Or maybe they changed to 2.8 liter on late USA models - I can't remember. I think they continued to call it a 250 until 1972 because the 280 twin cam was being to be introduced in 1973 and they didn't want people to be confused about the two different cars.
