1972 Mercedes-Benz 250

Summary:

Classic and worthy all the way

Faults:

Transmission went bad last year (2001), electric wires are all messed up.

Speedometer doesn't work.

Overheats when stuck in traffic (it will stop moving if it gets too hot).

General Comments:

Completely restored in 1994, this car probably has about 999,999 kilometers on it, it is a family owned car, driven as new by my grandfather, then by my father, and now by myself.

Anyone who might be looking to buy an early 250 Benz should definitely lookout for rust, electric problems and overheating.

This classic is really unique and though it got me back and forth from my house to the army for 2 years. I'm pretty sure it has a mind of its own when it comes to starting and moving, though when she does feel like taking me for a ride, she does it in a most agile way!

The reason I got it was since my father wanted to teach me a lesson after complaining about me being too spoiled, I recommend this treatment to all you fathers whose sons think they're too good to drive some cars, I generally hate Benzs, but this one has been a delight to meet, drive, take care of and live with.

And you know what, screw all the mechanical problems, it's pretty cheap compared to other antiques, if you want it, buy it, you won't be sorry.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Would love to make contact with the owner of the 250 CE in Israel. I'm importing a 250 CE to Israel in a few months. Facebook username is deanrobertpowers
