FS: '78 240D

Selling my '78 240D 4 speed to make room. Bought the car almost a year ago as a non runner and brought it back to daily driver condition.


'78 240D, manual HVAC, 4 speed, crank windows, no sunroof, hub caps.
Exterior color is Topaz brown which shows evidence of a partial repaint once in its life and the right front fender has damage to the lower front portion but from 10' you cant really tell.

Interior is bamboo, you'll notice the rear seat is half blue, I have the original MBTEX skin sitting on my shelf waiting to go back on. replaced the springs due to the horsehair turning to dust and the springs were broken. New back rest has green horsehair. Drivers front seat bottom has new springs and green horsehair. I have a new green pad for the passenger side and 1 new back rest with green hair to go with the car. I'm slowly removing the old tint as I have time.

Mechanical: AC does not work, has the old style York compressor and hasn't been converted over to 134A that I can see. New alternator adjuster bolt and good used adjuster gear.

Work done
1) made it run!

(no major cracks, some small ones starting, I want to get a carpet cover to protect the early style dash)
