Description for Mercedes-Benz 200-Series 1972

For sale is a 1972 Mercedes 250 base (W114). I love this car with all I have and babied it from the time I bought it. Currently it is my daily driver, however I am sadly looking for a truck to get me through the winter months as I make a move up north. I am in need of a quick sale so serious offers only please. I have put a lot of money into this car and I need to at least break even or else its coming north with me. When it comes to cars I feel preventative maintenance is always cheaper than needed repairs and the car absolutely shows that. The car is mechanically a tank and has a current inspection. Currently I have normal plates and tags on it but the buyer can change them to antique tags. Title in hand and ready to sell.
THE GOOD:
Oil changed every 1,000-2,000 miles
Original Paint
Tires are snow/muds and still have a good deal of tread
Interior is just under perfection
-Zebra wood on glove box has a bubble under clear coat (Shown in picture)
-Back edge of headliner slipped out of fastener
-All lights work with the exception of the interior rear courtesy light, just blew out, needs newbulb.

THE BAD
Still has a high idle since carb rebuild(adjustment willbe madethisTuesday)
Rust repairs were primed and painted but have yet to be sanded and shaped, I have no experience with paint touch ups so I never touched it. Shown in pictures on drivers side at the back of wheelwells.
Trim is not in perfect condition, back towards tailgate has bend, some of the chrome is faded.
There is scratch on the drivers side just above front tire (Shown in picture)
Heater does not work, should have thought to fix that one before winter!
Parking brake slips so must be used in conjunction with e-brake
Overall the highlights of this car are the mechanics of it and the interior. This is a great carand I am sick to see it go. I would consider trading for an old 4x4 truck.
That should be everything about the car let me know if you have anymore questions through email. I love talking about it so ask me anything.
Thank you for reading
