Talking My 2nd w115

Hello BenzWorld,

Back in high school I was fortunate enough to be given the family hand me down '76 240D. It went from my grandparents to my parents, to my sister, to me, and then back to my sister when she went to college. The old 240D became quite the rust bucket in 2008 so I stripped what parts I could and then had her scrapped.

I had been searching over the past 2 years for another one in great condition. I was having a hard time trying to justify the plane ticket to CA for a car that most likely would have to be trailered back home to WI. One night in February I did a random google search and found exactly what I was looking for, a 1976 240D from CA located 15 mins from my place. A guy posted it up on for one of his friends. I made a phone call and looked at it the next day then made payment the following day.

It was originally from CA, spent some time in IA and then ended up in WI. She needs quite a bit of work but she runs decent. Well, sorry for the long read. Here's some pics.

My old 240D:

3 hours, soap, water, swapped grille, and a bottle of Simple Green later:
