87 190D Turbo in NC, $4,500
One of 658 190D's with the turbo 5 cylinder from the larger, heavier 300D. This is a car you don't see every day. It's in great shape mechanically. I've installed new glow plugs and relay, new tires, new dash, new brake pads, a new alternator and recently changed the differential, transmission and torque converter fluids. Southern car with absolutely no rust.
It runs great, with plenty of power- especially when the turbo kicks in. I've been running it on biodiesel with nothing but good results. Mileage is 230,000 with many more left in the car, they run forever.
A few issues: the clearcoat is peeling in a few places, the sunroof and rear passenger window do not work and the A/C needs to be recharged- all fairly simple repairs. Other than that, the car is great and easy to work on.
I'd love to keep the car, but a growing family means it isn't an option for me.
