Maintenance issues can be a pain in the ass but honestly, you are looking at buying a 41yr old car. The key is to appreciate it for what it is, a classic car.Hi,
I've just read those posts and it seems that Young St is the place to go to in the Ottawa area.
I'm about to go look at a 1970 220D manual trans, but I've never owned 1) a mercedes and 2) a car that old.
Any suggestion on what to look for? I'd bring it to those guys to have it thoroughly checked, but in the meantime I'm a bit worried about getting parts if needed and the price.
The car itself is cheap but still... maintenance could be a deal breaker.
Is there any older MB models enthusiast around Ottawa that I could meet with to get advice? I love to teach as much as I love to learn.
I believe MB Canada has a restoration facility in Canada for old/hard to find parts, so if you were in a real pickle you could most likely get the part rebuilt. I believe it is in the GTA, and I think there is one in Montreal. Montreal is where Star motors is going to send my AMG rims to restore them from some curb rash.
Out of curiosity, does anyone know Tapp Auto and how their dyno is? I'd like to do a run before starting upgrades. Pricing if known would be good also.
