1972 Mercedes-Benz 250C W114 Stroke 8 For Sale
1972 Mercedes-Benz 250C W114/8 Chassis Number 11402312008095 Engine Number 13092312020318 Odometer reading 83,000 miles This 250C was first registered in the state of California in 1972 and the history files suggest that a change of ownership from Mr. Hieduke, in North Hollywood, to a Mr. Carhart, in suburban Los Angeles, took place in 2012. The history file accompanying this car comes complete with servicing and maintenance records dating back to July 2011 from North Hollywood. The majority of the invoices relate to perishables such as filters, oil, pads and discs and, of course, a selection of tuning related work to the carburettors and a host of other remedial work to replace worn seals, gaskets, bushings, cables, bearings and a host of suspension components. The total amount of invoices going back to 2011 substantiate over $6,500 for its time in USA. Recent work carried out last year includes a new alternator and belt along with fitting a new replacement fuel tank. Being a US derived model, this example has the larger displacement 2.8 litre inline six engine more commonly associated with the 280C, however it comes equipped with carburettors rather than the European specification Bosch D-Jetronic system. Presented in factory cream with brown pinstriping, complemented by, unmarked, brown velour seats without headrests and without the column shift. This is a delightful 250C that is extremely original and unrestored, it's evident that its owners have really taken care of it mechanically. Upon closer inspection, this is a very original coupé with lots of character. Recently had the air-conditioning upgraded to the new gas with new Compressor and fully overhauled at a cost of over £1500. Whilst this was carried out I also had the heater controls overhauled. Now you know the background and history of the car. I’ll talk about the not so perfect areas. It’s incredibly original however the paint is tired in places and there is evidence that there has been touched up over the years. The floorpan is incredibly solid with only a very small rust patch that should be repaired This car has a selection of things that once rectified would make the car a stunning usable classic, I had the intention of rectifying them so I’ve created a list below: Both Driver and passenger door seals ones that sit on the car body rather than the door. Mercedes Benz Window Channel Door rubber Window regulator for electric windows for both driver and passenger side. (Worn teeth and windows do not go up straight unless manually assisted) Sealed headlight RHS door stops/straps both sides Indicator relay (sometimes intermittent) Rear windscreen chrome corner moulding LHD My plan was to do this work and keep the car in a local lock up and use it on the weekends, don’t get me wrong I have been using it over the weekend however realisation had struck that it’s probably a more romantic version then I can currently afford. Viewing can be arranged in Wimbledon and I'm to reasonable offers. Also would consider a trade for other classic cars. Many Thanks.
