So I'm 15 almost 16, looking to buy a car. My family has a 2003 Mercedes Benz Sprinter 2500, a 1996 Mercury Grand Marquis LS Bayshore Edition, and a 1982 Mercedes Benz 240D. The Sprinter has nearly 130K miles on it, and the 240D was about 320K but the odometer broke back at 235K. The Sprinter works great for moving people and stuff but has in the past 2 years it has had its fuel pump, fuel injectors, and the alternator replaced. The 240D does not work anymore because my dad let an employee borrow it and the employee put the wrong oil into it. I want to buy a Mercedes diesel (W115 300D or W123 300D or maybe a late 80's or 90's diesel). If I get the W123 I am planning on doing a manual transmission swap with the manual transmission from my dad's 240D or maybe get the rare 5-speed and I have the Euro headlights for the W123 I bought off of craigslist for like $100. If I get the W115, I might op for a engine swap for the turbo engine, or just add a turbo, and see if I could do a manual transmission swap from the auto.
