1972 Mercedes-Benz W114 280C from North America
Beautiful white coupe, unlike any other of its time
Replaced front brakes & tires.
Plugs left me stranded once.
Then it was the points.
... and then rebuilt the alternator.
Fuel line rusted through, replaced that & now I think I might be able to drive it again... wish me luck.
The first drive of this coupe was fantastic, each mechanical overhaul delivers a new car... each better than the last. It's a tight drive, fantastic feel cruising Henry Hudson Parkway or the highlands of New Jersey where we live.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

How might I make contact with this owner (as well as others)?
I am presently working on a complete re-write of a Mercedes-Benz Buyer's Guide and need information on the W114 chassis 250C/CE and the 280C/CE coupes.
Specifically, technical specs (wheelbase, weights, etc of the kind that is usually found in the magazine reviews of the cars).
