Buy the Mercedes-Benz 250 and spend your money on engineering, not status-you'll sleep better at night. �€" 1971 Mercedes-Benz magazine advertisement The classic Mercedes ad quoted above included tidbits like these to establish the unparalleled quality built into the 250: Owning a Mercedes-Benz250 will be a tribute to your good sense, not your ego. You can reasonably expect to keep this car until it has more than repaid its cost by years of faithful service. Your investment won't be eroded by annual facelifts, slapdash construction or cheap materials. Built for the long haul. You pay for superior engineering when you buy the Mercedes 250. For instance, its 16 selected gauges of sheet metal help form the 250 'unit' body. It is welded at 10,000 points, then hand-sanded and inspected for 3 hours. In all it carries 45 pounds of protection against rust (including 24 pounds of permanent undercoating). Not a Barge. If you are a good driver now, your 250 will make you a better one. It is an almost incredibly responsive car. One reason: the 250 measures two feet shorter than its major rivals. You thread through traffic with the agility of a sports car. Foiling fatigue. 'The seats are as good as any in the world,' writes the Editor of Car and Driver magazine. Racing-car brakes. Mercedes-Benz engineers fitted the 250 with the same brake system found on Grand Prix racing machines: 4-wheel caliper-type disc brakes. Offered here is proof of the Seventies Mercedes build quality. This is a 1971 Mercedes-Benz 250 sedan in Light Ivory (Code: DB-623) over Mercedes Tobacco Brown (Code DB 423), a low-mileage example still in good shape with 50 years of history. The odometer shows 66,721 miles, fewer than 1,350 miles per-year on average since new. The exterior Light Ivory paint has been refreshed and shows generally good condition and presentable color, but with some signs of light rust on the lower rocker panels, door bottoms, and lower rear fender. (To best assess the quality of the paint and trim finishes, please be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) Sheet-metal body panels show no dents, dings, or impact damage. The classic Mercedes formal grille is in excellent condition. Chrome body trim and bumpers are also well-maintained, and factory badging is complete. Cabin glass and lighting lenses are clear and undamaged. Original Mercedes steel wheels with body-color wheel covers are mounted with period-correct Michelin® X 185/14 thin-whitewall tires. The Mercedes Tobacco dark-brown interior is very well maintained. Door trim is free of significant flaws and vertically pleated seat upholstery is in impressive condition with few signs of wear and no splits or damage. Door armrests, window cranks, and handles are operational and undamaged. Dark-brown loop carpeting shows well with little wear. The classic Mercedes padded steering wheel with horn ring and 3-point star emblem frames the formal instrument cluster, a timeless look. The black padded dashboard is in well-preserved condition free of cracks. Wood trim is in good condition with minor crazing but no significant damage. The original Becker® Europa AM-FM push-button radio is in place; switchgear is complete. The shift lever for the automatic transmission is mounted on the steering column.
