1976 Mercedes-Benz 250

Recently I had a chance to catch up with a friend, who since I had last seen him had purchased a classic Mercedes-Benz. After months of getting it polished up and running right, his 250 was proudly on display at an event that he drove hours to get to. I got to go for a ride in it, and immediately the smells, sounds, and experience of a classic Mercedes-Benz all flooded back; there really is something special about these cars.

The 250 was one of the six-cylinder models on offer as part of the 1.9 million produced in the W114/W115 series. Designed by the legendary Paul Bracq, the W114/W115 is a handsome design that channels all the right classic Mercedes-Benz qualities. It really does look like a scaled-down 600. Though the overall production number is really high, numbers in the six-cylinder configuration are much lower; today’s car should be a W114.611, which was produced between 1973–1976 and was powered by a 2.8-liter M130. About 11,500 were made in this run, and this model year was the end of the run for the W114 – as ’77 saw the W123 introduced. Let’s take a look:

Shipping
Buyer is responsible for shipping costs. I can cooperate with your shipper. This vehicle is advertised on other websites, so I have the right to end the auction early if it gets sold.

Payment
Please, be ready to buy when you click. A non-refundable $500 deposit is due when the auction ends. The final payment is due within 7 days after the auction ends. Balance is to be paid via bank wire or a certified bank cashier’s check. Check will need to clear before the vehicle is released and the title is sent. The winning bidder needs to contact me within 24 hours of auction end to make payment arrangements. Please, arrange all financing prior to bidding. If you are not sure about anything, please don’t assume – just ask. I’m very easy going and will help in any way I can, but, please, be absolutely sure that you are ready to buy when you bid. All non-paying bidders will be reported to eBay.

Disclaimer
People have different opinions and expectations of older vehicles. It is your responsibility to personally inspect the vehicle or send a third-party inspector that will perform an inspection to your satisfaction. Remember, this vehicle is from the 1970’s, and even though I’ve tried my best to describe it, it can have some imperfections which I’m not aware of.
Due to vehicle age all sales are “Final” and “As Is”

So in addition to being a fairly rare configuration to begin with, this one is also a European-specification example (or at least appears to be) with a four-speed manual transmission. Paint color is hard to confirm without looking at the tag, and it might not be original anyway – but it looks like it could be either 606 Maple Yellow or more probably 623 Light Ivory. Inside is some neat red upholstery that is a bit unexpected, and you’ve also got nice wood trim on the dashboard, as well as some forged Bundt wheels and European headlights outside. In all it’s a tidy-looking car, though not much about its mechanical history – or any history at all – is disclosed. Still, this is not a 300SL or even a W113 that you’re diving into, and you can tell by the much more affordable pricing. If you like the looks, this seems like an affordable way to get into a classic Mercedes that will stand a bit apart from the crowd.

  1. I think that is a very fair price for the car. I always liked these…particularly the coupes.

  2. I still think of these (the sedans, I mean) as sub-$10k cars even in nice shape. That ship may have sailed, but I had a hard time with the price.

  3. Seems to present well with the exception of the steering wheel, which for some reason looks like it came out of a work truck that’s been daily driven to the construction site for the last 10 years.
