YAK Car Pic of the Day

72 benz 250c blu snbrn copy

The Mercedes-Benz 250 C was built from 1969-76, and this one is no newer than a 1973, judging from the absence of the federally-mandated 5-mph bumpers which showed up for the 1974 model year. Only 67,048 coupes were built during that span, compared to 1,852,008 four-door sedans. Considering these were world-wide production figures, it’s pretty rare to see one — especially one looking this good — hiding in plain sight in a driveway in downtown Sanborn.

    Those Federal bumpers were the death sentence for the symmetry of this machine; I always liked the body style of this generation of MBs.
