1974 240d stick driver yet to be seen
An older neighbor who had taken a polite interest in me dragging some real crap boxes into our nice neighborhood. He was interested in one of the total crap SLCs I'd dollied up the street, and he may have seen the 240d I parted.
As I was in the garage attic today fishing parts for a forum member I heard a voice "anybody there?". It was the neighbor who had come to tell me of a friend selling a stick shift 240d. He says the guy did some research and sees $2000 as the low end, $6000 as the high end, and he's willing to take $4000. The neighbor has driven the car, and said he wanted it for his granddaughter, but she has no interest in a stick shift. So he thought he'd let me know about it.
It sounds interesting, but nothing in after right now. I wonder if there are others. Let's see what presents itself first. Right?
My dream car is a classic sporty five speed (stick+overdrive) convertible that seats five. If, you want 70's-80's Mercedes tuner wheels, let me know.
