A unique and classy coupe that demands attention, but gets quite a bit as well
Original starter finally went after 31 years.
The original dual Zenith carbs were worn out. Did the dual Weber replacement retrofit, and couldn't be happier. Instant throttle response.
Right rear power window motor gave up the ghost. Again, original piece.
My 250C was a 1-owner and meticulously maintained until around '94. Original owner sold it to someone who was either too cheap or too stupid to fix what needed to be done.
The first year of ownership has been tough; mostly repairs of things that have been neglected too long. I highly recommend the carb retrofit. Brings the car back to life. While under the hood, I swapped out the original distributor with a Mallory electronic ignition unit intended for a Jaguar E-type. With some machining, it fit perfectly and transforms the driving experience.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
