Hello everyone. I'm from Toronto, Ontario, Canada and am looking to buy a 300TD from somewhere in north america.

I'm particularly looking for one that is completely immaculate. Absolutely mint body and lowish mileage. Well as low as you can find on a 25 year old car.

'79 -'85 is the year range I am looking for.

From what I understand 300 TD's were only sold in NA with automatic transmissions.

I am curious, is it a complete fools errand to look for one with a 5 speed?

Any help or advice would be appreciated.

My understanding is that the 5 speed was never sold with the wagon in the United States. Maybe in Canada....
