It's a 73 280 Sedan. It's actually not in that bad of condition. The car belonged to my father who past away not to long ago. So it has sentimental value to me.
It has some minor rust and dings. It also has some carb. problems. From want I have been told that the MB carb. is great when its working. But after it gets some age on it. It's a constant chore to keep it right. I'm thinking about a Weber or Holly conversion kit for it.
You are right about the short hops. I never thought of the moister in the oil not boiling away. Good point.
