1968 W110 200D Biodiesel Fintail Daily Driver

I'm throwing this out there, though people probably won't have money since the holiday season is upon us and so is the inclement weather. Solid daily driver-quality 200D that needs rust repair, new weatherstripping, and a carpet set. Factory A/C, CD player, floor shift. Drive it home. $2,000. Located in Tacoma, Washington. 1968 Mercedes Benz W110 200D Biodiesel Fintail

I'm still driving it to work every day. I got discouraged and was considering parting it out and then scrapping it. Lately I have been repairing the rust in the taillight area so I can install new taillights and gaskets. I'll probably drive it to Utah and back again in June.

Oh, well I'm glad you've decided to keep her in one piece. It's a beautiful car.

Thank you for asking about the 200D. I hadn't been able to sell it for even the $1,200 I purchased it before before I put $3,000 in parts into it. With the engine leaking oil and smoking, plus the rust, I dismantled it for scrap. It was very sad to do so.

I have a W110 station wagon that I am going to restore one day when I have the money... maybe in 10 years or so. Most of the parts from the 200D I am saving for the wagon, but I will be selling parts from the engine (injection pump is already sold). I will be unemployed in October so I plan on selling whatever parts I won't be using to pay bills.
