5k: Back Like A Bad Case Of German Measles: 1972 Mercedes-Benz 250C

It is always interesting when car buyers/sellers get heaping piles of advice from internet back seat drivers and pundits.  The advice is always well meaning and usually centers around adding value to the car, such as putting appropriate wheels on it, or suggesting an easy engine upgrade.  In the case of a certain V8 swapped Mercedes-Benz 250C, the best advice was to ditch the aftermarket steering wheel and nasty 1950s Cadillac style batwing aircleaner housing.  Unfortunately the new owner did not see, hear or heed the advice from this website and instead put some nasty donk (dub?) wheels on the car and left everything else the same…including the asking price. Do you think that is gonna stop us from featuring it again?  The next owner is gonna need to do better if he expects us to ignore it!  Find this 1972 Mercedes-Benz 250C offered for $5,500 via craigslist.

Our insider sources tell us that the car needed some sorting before it could be used regularly, so perhaps this seller has done some of that work and has added some value.  With any luck he still has the original wheels and could be persuaded to take a few bucks off the asking price and keep his wheelz.
