FS 1983 240 D 186k miles
Second owner of 1983 240D with 186k miles, works and runs very well, a little slow because it does not have a turbo, but other than that, no complaints. Interior is perfect, no cracks in leather, dash, wood grain. A/C blows cold, holds vacuum, radio (original Becker Europa) works, original MB First Aid / Safety Kit still intact.
Exterior has a little surface rust on rear wheel fender, as shown in pictures, typical for most these cars from North East with this age.
Currently the mounting bracket for the shock absorber in the driver side rear the bolts rusted, so I bought an original control arm in good shape from a junk yard, but now I am not sure I can install it by myself, since I don't have a lift, and I don't trust jack stands.
Antenna mast broke, bought a new one, didn't get a chance to install it yet. I will either include it in sale or install it myself.
Original owner was a lawyer, everything serviced from local dealer. I bought it with 156k, put 30k miles in the last 3 years. Now it sits in the driveway, until i change the control arm.
