i am thinking of buying a very good condition original 280c. Anybody

know anything about these cars and what to look out for. It has no

rust, runs well and appears to have original paint. Any advice would be

helpful.

Thanks

I went to school for servicing these

relicks when they were NEW.

The 280 then had the 4 barrel carb that was

difficult to 'get right ' even when new.

Now decades later ??!!??!!

It' was a improvement over the 250 twin carb before it and much better power.

Rust, Rust, Rust is the most important issue still when

looking !

Excellent parts availablility

Factory Manual is available on CD

and I agree with Steve - the deisels of that era are a much better car today for too many reasons to list right now. The only good thing about the '73 is that it's a 'small bumper' year - the last year before bigarse heavy bumpers were introduced on M-B's in '74
