Looking for a cheap 240D

I'm looking for a manual 240D (has to be a 240, the motor from the 300 would be too long for what I need it for), that needs to be running and driving to use the drivetrain in another project.

The body needs to be in decent shape for a future project (newer diesel motor, spare M117 V8, maybe). Paint condition doesn't matter, and since I'm looking locally, don't expect an issue with rust.

Needs to be near San Antonio; I can't break away from here due to my job.

Not a real hurry, just putting a feeler out there.

just completely gutted a 79 240d with manual four speed. flywheel, trans, crossmember, pedals, driveshafts rear diff and axles with the used clutch assembly also nib clutch/pressure plate/throwout bearing... located out of your area in beautiful Toledo, Ohio.

also have nice 83 240d auto and an 85 300dt. the manual trans kit is up for grabs it you are looking for one. otherwise, good luck in your Texas search.
