RHD 1967 250SL 5 speed, UK delivered.
« on: October 22, 2020, 19:22:49 »
Sadly, my divorce has left me in need of funds in order to buy somewhere to live so I have decided to sell the 250 five speed that I had imagined I'd be driving in my retirement.
I am exploring other avenues of funding and if successful it'll be withdrawn from sale.
Maybe I should try crowdfunding? :)

So the link doesn't really provide much information on your car, and only one pic, no price...   What are you trying to say?  Call the dealer to find out more?  Is the car "finished" or in the state shown in the photo?

So your car is part way through an expensive and show quality restoration.   I can't think of a more difficult state to sell a car in (other than in boxes).  Sorry for the unfortunate timing, best wishes.

Headrests are not "period correct".

Hi Stick.  Really sad to hear about your circumstances.  I was there 5 years ago after the bfh left me with a severe spinal injury taking the kids and all my money.  So I know how youust be feeling.  Ultimately the reason I lost my pagoda paying down debt.  If you are ever down this way the beers are always on ice.
