I've come to acquire a 1980 240d and I've quickly fallen in love with old MB diesels. The specs on the engine in this car give an hp rating of 10 less than my 240d. Though, the 240d is a turtle when compared to my gasser w202, it's still more than enough to putt around in classic style. And these fintails are just too gorgeous and classic to ignore.
No offense to teh guys inquiring about info, but I'm going to discuss with the owner the details first, and if I'm not going to jump on them, I will be happy to give the info so anyone else can rescue these beauties and give them the love they deserve. They are simply too cool for school.
Note: they are behind an upholstery shop in Mississippi. They have the original owner's manuals lying inside both of them. I believe the owner has already done some work on the interiors?
