1972 Mercedes-Benz 250
This car was purchased 10/19/1972 by "Mr. Keith" out of Cleburne Texas 76031.  Mr. Keith purchased this 1972 Mercedes 250 Sedan for his lovely wife at the tune of $8. 19. 05.  She didn't like to drive all that much. So the car was used sparingly. So much so the car eventually was covered and properly stored in their climate controlled garage. for a better part of 20 yrs.  Eventually. the ownership fell into the daughter's possession where it was driven and registered for a few years until 2005. until it was stowed away in the same garage after having carburetor troubles. A common Achilles heel.
The cars previously finicky dual Zenith Carbs have been professionally gone through.  The carb specialist who worked on the car enjoyed bringing it back to life after it's deep multi-decade long sleep.  The cars fuel lines. gas tank. fuel filters have all been changed.  The M30 Engine compression I was told is very good. It sounds very good!   

The cars current condition; Runs. Drives. and Stops.   I've been so busy I haven't been giving it the attention it deserves.  It needs to be driven to blow the cobwebs out! But there are a few more things to make it road safe.
 
-There's still work to be done to make this car a completely solid daily driver.  -The car's brakes could use a good bleed and I'd even go as far as replacing the brake master cylinder just for good measure. (safety) as well as changing out the thermostat and rodding the radiator. having it pressured tested. These are fairly simple and cost effective things-- under $250. that must be done in order for the car to perform at a high level.
-The AC connections are all there and I even have purchased a york compressor to install that is included with the sale of the car.

-The passenger seat headrest is loose and will need to be reattached and tightened.
-The car's gas float needs to be cleaned to show proper fuel level reading.
-The cars vacuum locks work. locking all four doors and the trunk when locking the driver side.
-All of the center chrome trim is in great shape. except the few dings on the trunk trim.
-The grills chrome trim is in great shape but could use a new verticle chrome piece.
-The car's cosmetics are at a caliber of a concourse 1 vehicle.  I've never seen any other w114 or w115 that's unrestored on this level.  
-The car comes with the original owner's manual. maintenance booklet. new car pre-delivery inspection sheet. original dealer invoice. letter to new owner etc.  
-It's one thing to be rust free. and then it's another to see stock window decals and protective vinyl sleeves under the seats. and not one dash crack in the center stereo grill.  This car is completely original and unrestored. after spending 20 years in a garage.
-It has two brand new tires from Discount Tire on the back that were installed after the originals weren't keeping air when it was moved from the garage . go figure! 

The car has the original Becker Radio Stereo. nbsp;but it currently is disconnected after a newer unit was put in the early 2000's.  It is currently still wired for the newer radio. but I am giving both the original and new unit with the sale.
Being the car was covered and stored in a climate controlled garage it saved the car from the usual problem areas you'll find with this model. There is absolutely no rust in the trunk or fenders or anywhere else on the chassis of this vehicle.  The car's undercarriage is solid. even having remnants of the factory protective coating.  MB glass throughout.

Unfortunately even with the car being properly stored there was a small pest somewhere along the line. who nibbled a small area of the black pebble firewall. (I have sourced where to find new OEM rubber pebble firewall replacement $90)
 There is also was a small pinhole leak in the window washer fluid tank that slowly dripped corroding the battery tray over years of sitting in the garage.  But other than that this car screams concours perfection and has to be one of the finest examples I have ever seen.  
With the summer fastly approaching here in AZ and my time & garage space filled. I have decided that it's only fair to the car. to find it a new home so it can continue its life in a nice shaded garage. This car with a professional detail and wax would scream even more than then it does now with its Olive green original paint.  The paint has been untouched (detailed)for over a decade!
The Cognac MB-Tex is in amazing soft supple condition. free from any tears.  

One can assume there are insect dings. door dings. and scuffs but I have to say I've never seen a car look so good. with just a handwash.
Pre-Purchase inspections welcome. I'm more than willing to provide more pictures or videos of the car actually driving. and of the engine as I just ran out of picture space!  
As far shipping goes. I  am more than willing to help in any way with a global shipping and arranging pickup logistics.  Feel free to ask any questions. my number is 315-436-1540 to reach me directly.  
**Please note that the reserve is very close to the buy now price with consideration to the car's history and original condition. all of my disclosure are with the mindset of making the vehicle  a level one concours. **
I have tried to describe the vehicle's current condition to the best of my ability and strongly encourage any pre-purchase inspections or in person visits before the auction ends. This is a classic car making it smog exempt classical insurance in most states**
All bids and deposits are nonrefundable.  The car is being purchased "AS IS CONDITION" no refunds or warranties. PLEASE  bid with confidence. This is a 7-day auction . please don't wait to the last day to try and come look at the car or ask questions. I may not have time to answer them.  Give yourself time!  Ask for more photos. videos.  THANK YOU!!
