90mpg 1978 Mercedes 300 series "500SEC"

This is totally legit: Mercedes-Benz : 300-Series 4 dr in Mercedes-Benz | eBay Motors

Looks to be a Euro 300D with a nice blue cloth interior (my favorite blue interior), 4 speed manual, and has a decent repaint. No telling what condition the engine is in but the rest of the car looks nice. I am not sure of the values of those cars but if it is a decent price, it just needs to have those hideous rims replaced with stock rims and the trunk badge and emblem replaced. Might be hard to deal with the seller though, since he is obviously lying about the MPG.

Those bug-eye headlights would have to go too. Does he mean one power window works or one doesn't work? I'd be really wary of someone with that much BS...

This guy is full of it all the way to his brown eyes. It doesn`t have electric windows, they are manual. that sure is a bright blue dash, but glove box looks black. what`s with the milage, is it 120K or 11K? and the trans, a 4 sp or 5? weard how he worded it. and it looks white on the door jamb, maybe the light did that. that milage is incredable, maybe I should drive mine over to E-bay headquarters and get some of the magic dust to will fall on it. they are about 30 miles from here.
