Thumbs up FS in L.A. CA: 1981 Mercedes Benz 240d---reliable and in good condition

I need to pay back my student loans so my trustworthy car needs to sell.

- LOW 138k miles (just broken in!)
- 4 speed automatic
- Palomino (tan) leather interior
- Beige (cream white) exterior with color matched hubcaps
- Added new tint
- Recent maintenance done
- VERY reliable daily commuter
- Averages about 30+ mpg!
- Will even throw in my new set of Vogtland performance lowering springs. This was a limited production run for the 240d (W123 chassis) cars.
- Ready to be converted to run on veggie oil!
- These cars are well known to run up to 500k miles before rebuilding.

- The car is in overall great condition and is ready for a new caring owner.

$6500 Or Best Offer, but also willing to trade for a couple of Honda Ruckus (scooter) or Yamaha R6 (2007 and up, but willing to accept 2003 and up as well). Willing to negotiate!

I would like your springs if you still have them. Thanks. What do you want for them?

Sorry, but I'm not parting with the springs just yet.

Car is still available for sale.

The only 240D worth having is a manual tranny! Yeah, his price is about $3K too much IMO
