WTB: Looking for my old Benz. Father/Son rebuild
I hope someone will have some information for me.
I'm looking for a White 1974 240d with blue interior and a sunroof. This vehicle was sold in the Clinton, TN area back in '93-'94. When purchased there was about a 3-4" hole in the hat rack and possibly 2 or 3 "axe" marks in the truck lid beside the lock. It was broken into...long story. Aftermarket Pioneer stereo (or Alpine, can't remember). If memory serve me correct, I believe either the radiator was bad, or the transmission quit. I was in college at the time and my dad handled the selling.
This was a project that my dad and I worked on back in High School. It is really the only thing I would have to remember our time together. We purchased it in Memphis, TN. Someone had redlined the engine. Him and I pulled the engine together and rebuilt it. He was a Mercedes Tech at the time, so this was nothing difficult for either of us. I have a lot of memories with this car, including my High School graduation.
All of the records my dad had of this car have been lost. So I don't have a VIN. Just a detailed description.
If anyone knows of or has any idea of such a car in your area, either present or past. PLEASE let me know. I would love to have this back as a memory of my dad.
