Front end needs some bearing, rods, ball joints and such, most come with the car and just need installing.

The car is slow and any non turbo Merc is but there may be room for improvement, especially when cold. My mechanic, the best in town, says the car is working fine the way it is , and I have it in writing from him.
A few other things I cannot remember right now.

THIS IS A GREAT CAR, no excuses, qualifications or if and buts. It is a great old slow poke brick made in Germany to last forever. If this is the car you need you would be hard pressed to find a better one for daily use. If it is the cannon ball you are entering, get yourself a Maserati and live the Merc diesel for church errands. It is that good.
