Red Classic: 1961 Mercedes-Benz 220

Why do the best cars have the worst advertisements? I constantly tell people they need to put together good advertisements with clear photos and complete descriptions…but the best cars for sale always have the worst listings. Take todays next car, it doesn’t have a single complete photo of the exterior of the car and the seller says stuff like “minor ding on the trunk…also very easy sheet metal fix”. Oh boy. Find this 1961 Mercedes-Benz 220 offered for $3,700 in Boothbay Harbor, ME via craigslist. Tip from Orlando.

1961 Mercedes Benz 220B in great condition. Manual, 4 on a tree. Runs and drives perfectly fine. No rust, this is a California car and has been garaged it’s whole life. Interior in pretty good condition, with original red leather seats. Driver seat has minor tearing. 153,000 miles on the clock. Updated radio with bluetooth function. Front tires have some wear on the outside meaning it could use an alignment (easy fix). All lights/ blinkers are functional. Brakes in good condition. Minor ding on the trunk, but trunk still opens and closes, also very easy sheet metal fix. Fun car for the summer. Willing to negotiate on price. *NEED CAR GONE THIS WEEKEND, motivated seller.
