1976 240D...19k miles...pretty nice..

This is pretty sweet if the milage is correct, the interior is pretty clean and so is the exterior...plus its an auto....we know how slow these puppies are with an auto....I would for sure check out....someone could make some cash on it....or have a nice 240d that would last the rest of their life...

heeey, that's not a w123 ... more like a w115.

it *is* sweet looking for a four years sitting stint.

low ball, fix up engine, replace rubber suspension bits, toss on some light alloys, and you got yourself a daily driver.

Pretty car! But, yeah with the auto it would never get out of it's own way. Find a manual for it and it'd be a sweet ride.

I don't think the backs are beat up. Just the screw on the bottom flap came off.
