Cost of a new 1982 240D

Just out of curiosity was wondering how much a brand new 240D cost in 1982 when purchased at a US dealer.

Interesting. $25k for the 1983 240D, and my 1984 300D came in at $32,000. That may not seem like a lot of difference today, but in today's dollars, that meant the cars cost roughly the equivalent of:

240D: $56,000
300D: $71,000

So I can see why people would choose the 240D!

Wow, talk about inflation; my 1978 240D listed for $17K. That was still 3X the cost of a well equipped chevy.

My 1985 300D, which I still have the original window sticker for was $33198, including $1083 for optional leather interior and $175 for inland tranportation to Chicago.

How much can you maintain and restore a 240D with very, very little money? I'm going to find out

My 240D was somewhere in that neighborhood as well. I wonder what the sticker was on my 280E?

Its amazing the difference in price from a 77 to an 85 W123.
