here's a quick synopsis. the car is originally a CA car, been in MA for 1 year.
1967 (W110) 200D sedan. tail-fin model in dark green with 4-speed manual.
The car has no structural rust. Only some minor surface rust along the rear passenger door where there is a scrape. it does need a tune, motor mounts, headliner, exhaust, front grill, window seals, and a new coat of paint. the car is in original condition. it runs fine except a bit rough at idle. i think the idle is high and the bad motor mounts aren't helping. shifting is a breeze and clutch feel is solid.
i'm thinking it'll cost about $3000 to get it to top "daily-driver" condition. the price is $2500.
again, no rust! and very little electronics to fail. simple, clean, and diesel.
(my other option is a 1984 300 Turbo Diesel in black with all the bells and whistles that just turned 100,000 miles, for $5500. need a window regulator and a dent taken out, but otherwise good.)
