Had a type 116 280se some years ago , lovely car , great presence ,nice drive but best as Mercedes intended it . This one has obviously been messed with , no interior photos , and the seller so wants to keep the car that he "relisted" it . Long way to view before you buy, plus shipping costs etc . Probably better to buy a car nearer to home . Having lived in the USA in the eighties , some states did not ( perhaps still do not ) have any form of check on vehicles condition .
