Hey Guys... I'm thinking about selling my Clean Title 1978 240D "Creamy" She runs and drives great... The engine runs flawlessly with 214K on the car.
(I'm serious, it runs WAY better than my 1985 300D T and my 1987 300D T.) It shifts good through all gears and has lots of clutch left. It does
grind very slightly when putting it in 2nd, and only when reved a lil high) I learned after a few minutes of driving how to shift it into 2nd without any grind...
(worn syncro...) I think the door seals leak (But then I'd be surprised if they didnt being 32 years old) but I may be replacing all of them within the
next month or so... (if it doesnt sell) Also the paint hasnt faded the same on some panels... I think it was in partial shade somewhere hot for a while...
oh ya! No Rust! and the turn signal switch doesnt work right now, but I'm working on that...
I'm not sure How much I want for it... but make me an offer! Or trade for a newer 190D???

Below are a tone of Pics! Take a look!
