FS 84 240D SOUTHERN Car, Not Rusty Diesel 240 Euro Spec $4500 NY w123 Mercedes Benz
we have a 1984 240 diesel for sale. (yes, 1984!) it's a SOUTHERN car, so there is no rust. it's quite amazing that way.
it has new clutch slave cylinder, new clutch master cylinder, new glow plugs, four new tires, new brakes, new shocks, new filters, and probably some other things i may be forgetting. a new corner light is coming (in photo, it's broken). the car runs perfectly. it starts right up perfectly. it's NOT a smoke-maker! it's also not leaking. four speed manual. has air conditioning (not working now; have not gotten into that). sliding, manual sunroof (mercedes original). original Blaupunkt am/fm/cas radio. decent sound. odometer says 131k miles, but that's obviously doubtful. this is a european car. there were no 240 diesels in the USA after 1983; the 190 diesels "replaced" them in the US M-Bz line up. that means this is the slightly more powerful 2.4 liter diesel four cylinder engine, a bit more horsepower and torque. if you are used to early 80's American 240 diesel snail's pace acceleration, you will notice this one accelerates just a bit better. anyway, it's smooth, in great condition for a 28 year old car, and is ready to be driven anywhere, any distance right now.
if serious, call 716-462-3298. located in western NY state, Buffalo. thank you!
