FS in Oregon: 1974 240d. Needs serious engine work.

it kills me to give up on this, but i have too many projects and this one needs to move on to a different loving home.

the car is in fine shape cosmetically, but the engine needs serious work or replacement. according to the mechanics who looked at it, the problem is with the holes in the block through which the connecting rods pass. two of these are damaged such that the rods rattle quite a bit, and don't drive the engine at all efficiently. the block and rods need replaced, which as i understand it means the whole engine. it ran (quite roughly) the last time i had a charged battery in it...

i believe it has 109K

pictures and contact and more info through craigslist:
