1975 Mercedes Benz 280 sedan (W114). Bought it a couple of years
ago. Its 'appeal' - You just don't see many of these iconic Benz's
around, especially in the original factory yellow and it turns
heads. There's just something regal in the appearance of these
1960s and 70s Teutonic classics. It's just plain striking when
polished up but, of course, it's been garaged which is why the
paint retains its sparkle. It sports a six cylinder, gas engine
which is quite economical, factory power sunroof and power windows.
Its interior is in great shape albeit one of the seat belts in the
back who's buckle/latch seems to have fallen apart thus, that needs
addressing if you use seat belts. As one might expect from well
built classics, this Benz's tightness of the body still affords
that THUNK of overbuilt quality when the doors are closed. It also
retains it's original-style body-colored classic hubcaps. Much to
the chagrin of a guy who owns a couple of classic Caddys, even its
clock keeps good time which American cars seem never to do. That's
a testament to German engineering Currently the original Becker
AM/FM radio is intermittent. Sometimes you start the car and the
antenna goes up and radio works but, other times. . . you drive in
silence. Clearly, it's a loose wire that needs to be found. The
odometer reads a tad over 53 thousand. Have no reason to doubt
those are original miles. This is a very nice example of an
extremely well preserved 1975 Mercedes Benz 280 4 door, gas, sedan.
While not a show car, it's a very nice driver. UPDATE new Exhaust ,
