Is it a 4 or 6 dr?

It's still HOT even though its rough. But $2500? NO.

It's a gasser too too bad it wasn't a diesel.

Heck I might consider it and use it as a mobile office, notebook station, fax, printer, with wireless broadband, crank up the A/C, drop in a mini fridge. :D

A 240D limo!!!! Talk about putting lipstick on a pig!

I agree with having a rolling office. Can you imagine the look on a clients face when you closed the deal in the back of your vintage MB limo? :cool:

It looks pretty dirty, and probably is a 250 "Lang" one. Pretty rare in the US.

Oddly enough that is a m110 in there. Looks like the ignition is destroyed (probably stolen and recovered) but the interior and exterior actually look pretty decent. It is dusty and not clean, but that looks like some old single stage black paint (black on black), so even if its a little faded, it could be brought back pretty easily. For $2500, that isn't a horrible deal. Looks like a newer AC compressor and even SLS for a heavier load.

You'd think they'd at least try cleaning it first. Also as much as I hate to say it, a gasoline engine would be better for a private limo. A modern CDI would do fine I'm sure.

Also the way I figure it, if they take the effort to take pictures and don't even show the front and rear, that means those parts of the car are most likely in poor shape.

That's the first thing I saw, too.

I wonder which M110 engine it is...

A euro spec M110.984 and up engine that is in good shape would be worth something (but not for $2500, and I doubt this engine has been well cared-for).

Would this be a North American or Federalized Euro car?

Most likely a federalized euro car. Probably a .984

And... judging by the what we can see of the hubcaps, would those be 15" steel wheels?

I saw one of those last week by my friends shop for sale, it was the 300D version, I asked about putting it on the lift, and did so....as it raised it almost bent in 2....apparently chassis rust....bad...

I saw a similar 280E limo running in China in 2005. It had steelies but I couldn't tell if they were 15" as we zipped by in a taxi doing 40mph.

I do have an ignition lock and for all doors and key for a W123.....

I dunno if it means anything, but my .984 in the 1980 Euro has a green handle on the oil dipstick.

My other engine in the 1980 US has a reddish handle on the oil dipstick.

Are these coded?
