I just bought a grey market 300d 4 spd with 121,000 miles. My German nieghbor, who I bought it from, says it's the 'country version': mercedes fire extingusher mounted to the drivers seat, stiffer springs (it looks a bit higher than other 123's) and nothing but bare bones accessories: no sunroof, manual windows, no rear dome light, trunk light, or rear defrost. Does anybody know more about this version?

I have an 83 300D Euro as a daily driver has cloth vs
Texmex vinyl, manual sun roof, manual heat/air, different fan then USA version. No glove compartment lock, less wood, different bumpers, Euro H4 lights,
no EGR, older style auto trans,hubcaps, reflective triange in the trunk, darker turn signals lens in front. In Germany much, much less expensive then the USA version. At the time many people would buy the Euro and a fantastic vacation, ship it home and still have $$$ left over. At one time SL's were 29K in europe 70K in USA...

There used to exist a stripped (of accessories) 300TD in the early 80's. It was aimed at the taxi/transport/utility vehicle market and had stiffer springs, bigger wheels(!) and considerably higher load capacity. If I remember correctly they could carry 780 kg of load.
