For Sale - 1983 240D - 4speed - Nice !

Hi folks, I am looking to sell my 1983 240D 4-spd. I need to pare down to one car and since I live in Chicago, I don’t want to put this one through salty winters if I can avoid it.

It came from the south, I brought it up from Atlanta last year (stored the winter) and has 178,000 miles. It runs and drives excellent. I drove it from Chicago to Buffalo and back in June, no problems.

It is very nice, needs nothing to enjoy, has few issues:

- Vacuum locks work, but have a leak. When engine is off, they don’t hold vacuum and you have to start the car to unlock everything

- Couple of dash lights are out above heating controls.

- Body has dings. Paint is nice and shiny. There is one rust bubble ,about ¼ inch wide , below the rear window that can be fixed easily. No penetration. No rust underneath.

That’s it. In the last year I replaced a motor mount and aligned it. That’s all it needed.

As it is very nice, 99% sorted out, and really needs nothing, I’m asking $4500.00. I paid $4800.00 for it in March 08, and while we are in a depressed market, you really don’t see many this nice. I hope to replace it with a solid 190e to use as a daily driver and leave in front of a train station all day (so, if you’ve got one…)

As I said, I just don’t want to be the guy that puts a 26 yr old southern car through the salt of a Chicago winter.

I also have a bullet-proof reliable Diesel Rabbit that is solid underneath but has body rust and a cracked windshield. That car is also sorted out, new brakes all around a year ago, new exhaust, new glw plugs and relay 10 months ago, new tires and a set of Nokian snows on steel wheels. I’m looking for $1200.00 out of that. Again, because it is all sorted out and other than the windshield, needs nothing. I just drove it to Indianapolis from Chicago and back last month with no issues and 41 mpg hwy.

Sorry bout the overexposed pics, it was very sunny yesterday. If you are interested and want a particular photo, contact me and I’ll be glad to snap one.
