For 116 lovers

Price seems a little on the high side...
But if it's as nice as it appears it would be a lovely car to have. Being from NY though I'd be concerned about the rust which undoubtedly exists unseen in a couple of places.

Yeah- I like it, but it's way too much. I also seriously doubt that it is original paint. I don't think they had a metallic blue in '77 and anyway, if you look at the 6th picture down of the scratch on the wheel well, it looks like there is a different blue in the scratch.

I love the M110 engine and wish I could find a car that I like with one- (W116 or R107) preferably with a stick.

This is not the first time this car has been offered on ebay. Didn't sell the first time.
