I hope i get some responses very quickly since I am going to look at the car tonight. I have never owned a MB, but I want a little sporty car to play around in. I have provided a link to the ad at the bottom of the page. I am pretty good with cars and have restored a 1972 Spitfire MKIV.
I have spoken to the owner and here is what she told me about the car.
Car runs good but has a lot of little cosmetic issues she listed them as paint on dash, ripped in drivers seat, stain on passenger seat, AC blows but not cold, heat works, Top works.
Told me the car she noticed some hydraulic fluid leaking out last time she showed the car. Also said she was having a coil replaced because it was slow accelerating and her mechanic said that was the issue. She got the coil replaced and said it was running great again.
She sounds like she is being hones with me, and I expect to fix a lot of little issues to make it dependable.
Car has 114,000 miles on it, and I am hoping I could spend about 1,500 and put about 30,000 more on it before I sale it. Also a dent in the trunk shich doesnt concern me because my brother owns a bod shop. Here is the link to the ad I will probably offer her $3,000 for the car. Advice is appreciated.
