1972 Mercedes-Benz 200-SeriesElegantly durable describes this car. I have owned it since 1992, nd used it regularly for family transport. 4 doors are extremely helpful with kids car seats. After moving from WA to NV in 1994, t was used daily to commute an average of 80 miles. At about 36,600 miles, he entire engine, xhaust and electrical systems were checked and repaired. It hasn't been in any accidents that I know about. No dings or dents.
Single overhead camshafts, wo valves per cylinder, 30 hp. Bosch electronic fuel injection.(112.2 inch wheel base)It got new paint in 1999. The car ran great for the move from NV to OK in 2002,and was used regularly until a family illness hit, round 2009. Although its been "black tagged", e still ran it regularly. I replaced the fuel pump and water pump in 2013 and it has a newer battery (2014). Current mileage: 91.000. Good tires.
Front bucket seats and back bench seat are in great shape. The car has a huge trunk, ith the original tool kit and roadside repair sign kit. Also, ts original radio. Its interior has a wooden dashboard and a big, efty steering wheel. The wooden trim around one back door has delaminated. The V-8 drove like a dream and handled so smoothly, nbsp;you hardly thought you were traveling that fast. Built to last and look good, oo. I was told this was the last year Mercedes hand built their cars.
It needs TLC, nd isn't running cause it hasn't been used for awhile. There are some minor rust spots. It will need transport and a new family to love it. Car is sold as is.
