Car description

The time has come for me to sell my 1971 Mercedes W114 250C Stroke 8. The very popular W114 model line of "executive cars" was styled by Paul Bracq as luxurious every day vehicles. The W114 & W115 models began in 1968 and were marketed as "new generation models" giving their id plates the "/8" earning them the slash eight nickname (or in German strich acht). They were the first post-war Mercedes-Benz production cars to use a newly engineered chassis rather than one derived from previous models. The 250C and the 280C are considered by Mercedes enthusiasts to be one of the best classics from the 60's and 70's era. The US versions of this car received a larger 2.8 liter M130 Straight Six engine instead of the 2.5 liter used in European cars.
This 250C is in great driver condition with classic pillar less coupe good looks and a reliable driveline similar to what was in the much more expensive Pagoda SL-Class models. The iconic "batman" headrests and magnetic Kangol 3-point seatbelts really make the interior a great place to be. The finicky factory carbs have been replaced with the well regarded Weber Conversion. Being a southern car, this Mercedes is a survivor that was cared for. This car has the original M130 engine (2.8L inline six cylinder) that keeps up with modern traffic. The alternator and power steering pump have recently been rebuilt and the tires were replaced last year. Due to faded original paint, the car was repainted in its original black single stage color last year. Unfortunately, when the shop removed the fog lights, they misplaced the mounting brackets so the original Hella fog lights come with the car but are not installed at this point. Besides the Weber conversion, there is something else that sets this car apart from a normal 250C and that is its set of 15" Ronal Penta AMG style wheels that are painted to match the body color. There is even a spare Ronal wheel in the trunk as a spare tire.
This car is a head turner with classic Mercedes pillar-less coupe style and a great driver. I would feel comfortable driving it across the country getting thumbs up from other drivers while listening to songs on the radio coming from my IPhone thanks to the aftermarket radio with auxiliary inputs.
