  1. Three 1972 Mercedes Benz for sale. Two are 280SE 4.5 and one is a 300SEL 4.5. Have owned all of them for around 30 years. One of the 280SEs is very nice and in good condition still having the original white paint and original blue interior. It has been driven on several AACA events including a Founders Tour. It has been garaged since I have owned it (other than the Founders Tour) and it appears that it was garage kept for most of it's life. The other 280SE 4.5 is white also and has a charcoal interior. It has been stored outside with a cover. It does have some rust areas in the sheet metal but it is very restorable or could also be used as a parts car. The 300SEL 4.5 is dark blue with a blue interior and is very solid. It is a rare car with only 2,533 built between May 1971 and October 1972. It is the long wheel base version and has an airbag suspension (which is down). It was also stored outside with a cover. It would be a great car to restore and it should be. All three of these cars are all the last year of the tall grill and the last year for hand built Mercedes. They are all available as a package deal for a bargin price of $12,000. All were running well before parked and now have been sitting for several years, but it was before ethanol was added to gasoline. Just trying to reduce my collection to a managable number and keep everything inside. These cars are located in Winston Salem, NC. If you are interested in these vehicles or have any questions contact me at: AACABenz4sale@mail.com
  2. Paul and Jan, Yes, the car is still available. It is located in Kernersville, NC (between Winston-Salem and Greensboro). I posted the ad for my friend Joe (who is also an AACA member). Give Joe a call or text him at (336) 829-3777 and he can send you some more photos and answer any questions you may have. Thanks, Dave
  3. 1922 Centerdoor - Good Solid Car with Original Paint and Interior, Bud Vases, High Compression Head, Holly straight thru carb, Water Pump, Rocky Mountain Brakes, Ruckstell, Fatman Tilt Wheel, Starts easily on Mag, Runs Strong. $12,500. Call or Text Joe @ (336) 829-3777 in NC.
  4. Thanks for your time and effort Joe. I really appreciate your input. I thought metric hardware should be good for something! Wish it would work on this carb. Thanks Again, Dave T.
  5. Thanks for the tip. The car is an occasional driver and goes to some shows (only 60,000 miles since 1964) but isn't concours. I'll give Bruce a call and see what he has. It runs great and gets decent mileage for a 310hp engine as long as the 2nd two barrels of the carb don't open up so I don't want to use another carb body or top except for last resort. Thanks again. Dave T.

  7. Does anyone know of a good fix for repairing stripped threads on a carb fuel inlet? It's a 1964 Rochester 4-jet with fuel filter in the inlet. Thread size is 7/8-inch diameter with 20 threads per inch. I've tried the epoxy thread repair route and it doesn't hold. The wall thicknes around the top part of the inlet is slightly over 1/8-inch thick so there's not much to work with. If anyone has experienced this and found a workable solution I'd appreciate it.
