fs: 1983 240d 275,000 miles in berkeley, california

just make me a reasonable offer ... my beloved 240d that i have spent many hours learning and practicing my mercedes benz maintenance ability is for sale. it's got lots of issues but all of them manageable for a person just starting out wanting a low cost good quality car.







things that need to be replaced very soon: right rear door strap, right (and probably left soon) half shaft, some odds and ends here and there.

it has four speed manual, (clutch was taken out and looked at about 5000 miles ago and found to be half used so we put it back in) but the getrag aluminum gearbox has a broken 2nd synchro that i've learned to drive around because i haven't found a good replacement.

it's pretty good otherwise, i'd rate it as an amazing bones but it does need a paint or protection job soon as bare metal and rust spots are starting to happen. ac kicks on if you charge up the r13 (it was converted) but i just don't use it much. it's got the original spare from when it was born ... woooo ... scary for the day i have my first flat on her!
