WTB '80-83 240D

Hey all, looking for a W123 240D, preferably with blue or black leather interior, 4-speed manual, and somewhere here in Texas. Exterior color doesn't matter, as that's something that can be changed relatively easy, but the interior is what counts. I'm looking to spend about $3000-3500.

I've used the statewide craigslist deal and didn't find a single one that matched what I wanted So I figured I'd give this a shot!

ETA: I'm NOT restricting my search between '80-83. I'm open to earlier models as well, it's just a little late and I wasn't thinking as I was typing, haha.

Wow, That's a tall order. Leather interior in a 240D is almost impossible to find. Most of them had MB Tex, since it was basically the bottom of the line car for those years. I've only seen a couple 240D's with leather in the 33 years I've been working on these cars. Finding a manual trans 240 with leather is even harder to find. Just sayin.

You cannot change your future without disturbing your present.
It looks a whole lot more like it does today than it did yesterday?

Honestly, I could pass on the leather, as long as the tex was blue or black. The most important thing is that it's manual, and relatively close by to my location.

Where at in Texas? Photos of the car? Is it manual? Also, looking to BUY not lease. And the fact that it's a W123 doesn't clarify if it's a 240D, 300D, 300TD, etc..

Only issue with that is that I have to look at traveling. I'm back in classes again so I won't be able to travel for an extended period of time.

Well, I guess I'm going to have to postpone my search until the local listings show something promising. I am in no position to travel at the moment, so any out of state sales are no longer an option.

I am now open to beige MB Tex interior. Also, the closer to San Antonio, TX the car is, the better.

Thanks in advance!!
