FS in Southwest FL area - 1978 240D Auto (Needs restoration)
Check out my auction:
Mercedes Benz 200 Series 240D | eBay
The car is in need of a few things but it's got what counts - a good, strong, reliable engine and an excellent 4 speed auto. This car has treated me well - I actually ended up finding and buying (last night) another 240D in much better shape. So for those of you out there that need a good "beater" or a car to restore, take a look - you can drive it for months or years as is or fix it up and have a very nice car for the next zombie apocalypse...
I can't bear to part this car or scrap it... the body is in pretty decent shape with minimal rust and the engine has astounding compression. It doesn't leak or burn any fluids and the tranny doesn't flare or slip.
It's for sale locally for 1,000.. the title is clear. If you have a parts car with a rusted out body and good interior?? Maybe this will be your answer

1991 Mercedes Benz 300D 2.5 Turbo
2006 Dodge Grand Caravan ~ Family Truckster
If there is one car that has earned my respect above any other, it would be the 240D. My stress just melts away as that diesel sings it's sweet song, mile after mile. Its therapeutic in a way, to know that she sings again because of me.
