1972 Mercedes-Benz 200-Series 280

Up for sale is a nearly restored 1972 Mercedes 280 SEL. I have had the body professionally restored using all metal (no bondo in this car), new tires put on, new duel exhaust with stainless tips, new plugs and wires and a new battery.
The bad: The interior is in rough shape and needs to be redone.
The radiator leaks at the upper neck.
This car starts and runs fine. It has a rear brake caliper that hangs up but, it does drive. I just wouldn't drive it very far with that hanging up and a leaky radiator.
I bought this as a project 4 years ago and then we started having kids. Now my free time to work on it has passed. I have over $11k invested in this car and am well aware that I am taking a major hit. I will be accepting best offers.
Thanks for looking.
