FS 1975 Mercedes 240D

I am listing for sale my 1975 Mercedes 240D located in Aydlett, NC. I have owned this car for two years and purchased it from the original family. Some of the history of my ownership has been posted on this forum.
http://www.benzworld.org/forums/vint...tting-her.html
I have enjoyed owning the W115 240D, but I found a W123 300D. I routinely drive the car on trips of 100+ miles round trip with no issues. Since I have owned the car it has been garaged and I have had or have completed all required maintenance (oil/filter many times,transmission change, coolant flush, rear diff, replaced rear brakes), 4 new Michelin Harmony tires (185/70R 14). All window, doors, locks gauges, with the exception of the speedometer/odometer work properly. I have included a few pictures (taken on my cell phone) and can send you as many as you like and probably better quality as soon as I find my digital camera. I could go on and on, but ask your specific questions and offers. I am asking $2200 for the car it is registered and insured in NC.

The mileage is unknown. The odometer reads 21881. The last receipt with an actual mileage is an inspection in Jan 1993 @95973 miles.

Additionally, the Air Conditioning works properly along with the fan for the AC and the heat/defrost.

Hi there, I'm interested, but have a couple off questions...I was wondering how long the vehicle has been near the coast? I know you've owned it for 2 years but was it from that area as well. Also have you looked under the carpets specifically where the front seats bolt for rust? If you'd like to PM me that's fine.

Thanks, Brad
