Pros

Giant Steering wheel. the Kuhlmeister worked till a automated vacuum sucked the control knob off.  Stylin' in cold-war excellence.  Twin carbs bring plenty of power up front,  Leather seating was perfectly intact despite three or so owners.

Cons

Twin carbs bring plenty of power up front. Transmission was slow and primitive.  Rear axle was in a strange configuration that wasn't brilliant for handling,  The horn would get stuck on. Quite embarrasing.

Cold War Stylin' — ACTUALLY A 230S (not one of your choices) Saw this one on a lot in Ashland California, after a while brought the gent down to a reasonable price. The twin carbs were troublesome because one must have a scyncronizer, that is to say with two tubes of mercury that you can check the vacuum and adjust accordingly. Had a great time with the giant steering wheel, like I've never seen before. Despite 300,000 miles will drive you anywhere. It's a friggin' MERCEDES! Gave it to my good friend Tom Frost who put it his garage where it has sat for near thirty years now. A gem, hope he ressurects this vehicle!

Great — One of the great german cars,you will enjoy your trip driving it, very spacy and enlighted from inside. Makes you really feel in the 60s. So far from technology which makes you able to enjoy doing the maintenance, and keeping it so shiny and pretty looking :)
