FS: 73 220d Greenville SC $3k

As stated, 1973 MB 220d Automatic, apx 278k miles, located in Greenville (actually Greer) SC and asking $3000.

History: started out in FL, brought to SC at some point. Engine was replaced by a MB dealer with a factory rebuild at apx 150k miles. Bounced around the Greenville SC area for at least the last the 15-20 years. A buddy of mine bought it apx 97 from ******** MB in Taylors SC, he used it as daily driver until 08 when he gave it to me. He moved to NYC, knew I always liked it and he is a great friend, so it was mine. Now I have a Land Rover in need of head gaskets and head rebuilds, and this is the 6th car in my fleet of 3 drivers and sees the next to least use so I'm going to let it go. My other cars: 08 Audi A4 3.2 s-line, 08 Opel/Saturn Astra XR, 96 LR Disco Mod'd, 85 Chevy K10 SB PU, 68 VW Type2 double cab PU.

Windshield and gasket
DRV door seals
Paint & rust repair, in 2010 with some bubbles show now in lower front quarters
Hood emblem
I rebuilt the window regulators on both fronts by drilling and replacing the pot metal pivot bushing
Front sub frame mount bushings, kit from peach
Both motor mounts, from peach
rear trans mount, from peach
Drive shaft center bearing
Drive shaft flex coupling (Guido)
4 Bilstein shocks
Front Wheel bearings
Lower ball joints with alignment
Steering stabilizer
Brake pads front
Heater blower motor, as for details on this one, replaced with a 12vdc boat HD bilge evac fan, works better than the original and look/operation just like factory
All belts
AC belt pulley tenser
AC conversion to R134 and it works too
Engine and battery grounds
Glow plugs
Inj pump primer
All filters
Coolant temp sender
Stereo with 4 speakers
Vacuum pump rebuild kit
Tires, 4 each 3/4 tread remaining
there's more just can't remember right now

Door seals on the 3 other doors
Interior is the low point-
Seat covers, tears and cracks in 3 of them
Head liner, it's there but has 2 tears near the rear glass
Center console, cracked and 1 AC vent broken, original stereo was stolen via busting the center console loose
Low fuel warning stays on, but fuel gauge works

Great Towny car due to being an auto, gets 30 mpg usually no matter how you driver her. Fuel conversions are very easy to do with this car too.

If question reply, I 'll be posting more pics soon of interior

Offers will be entertained, would really like to see the Merty go where she will be cared for and used, not chopped or mod'd.
