It seems that, to me at least, the Mercedes-Benz W114/115 may be forgotten about, or at the very least overlooked. I can understand it given the W111 Coupes that were being produced at the same time were some of, and still are, some of the most magnificent and quality automobiles ever built. A W111 Coupe has doors that weigh roughly the same as a baby elephant and shut so preciously that it’ll slice your fingers clean off if you get them caught. But you won’t care because all you’ll be focused on is the beautiful burl wood gauge cluster housing. So naturally if you are standing on the lot of a Mercedes-Benz dealer in 1972 and see that interior, then walk over and peek inside today’s car, a 1972 250C, you’ll probably be a little disappointed. It certainly explains why a W111 Coupe today is worth a boatload of money, and the W114/115 Coupe can be hand for those of us on a budget.
Kick back and relax now that the work week is over because I need some time to unpack everything that this 1972 Mercedes-Benz 250C is bringing today. At first glance I was excited to see a W114 coupe in awesome 860 green and to my surprise it was a four-speed manual as well. Then I started reading the description and looking at the photos to realize this car had much more than what I saw on the surface. So let’s dive into this 1972 250C located in Washington.

The W114 and W115 sedans and coupes were a fresh start for Mercedes-Benz, as this was the first all new chassis developed by the house…
