1973 Mercedes-Benz W116 280S 2.8 Gasoline with Carburetor from Thailand

Summary:

The first robust car indeed

Faults:

Seats have started to wear badly.

Interior have cracked.

Front and back seal for window shield have shrunk causing water leaking problem.

Some rust under the trunk, doors and other hiding places cannot completely terminated.

General Comments:

The W116 is a tank, and built to last. Even the usual problem of old Mercedes is getting rust, but the chassis is brilliantly created. I have driven it hard for years without any troubles. Once you have made a well maintenance of engine, body and suspension, you definitely earn a very good old car serving you through the end of the world!

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