Granted the car might as well be brand new, but look at that price! And it's a 240D!

Yes, she’s in remarkably good condition – there are still some like this around. In 1982 there were not many who could afford an MB, even a humble 240 D. Owned by one person for 25 plus years and driven rarely, today a gem like this pops up once in a while. The manual gearbox is very desirable – note the excellent condition of the shifter surround wood and the instrument cluster. The engine bay is new.

But…

I personally find the color atrocious…[xx(]

The BIN price is too high as well, imo.

I think the green is too military for me, but then again my girls is classic white with the chrome wheels. yeah, the price is way high! i'd rather take the 12k and put it towards a new diesel! but thats just me![8D]

If I had the money, I would really think about buying that car. That has to be the nicest 240 Ive EVER seen. I love the color.

But then again, If I had the money why would I be driving around a 20 year old Benz. Id have a new E320 CDI in my driveway. [:D]

of course its in almost mint condition but that owner is out of his minde. That is the most overpriced car for what it is, that i have ever seen. IN my life! Even if it was a 300d turbo that would be way too overpriced.[?]

i wont mind, itll just set the bar higher for when i sell mine=)

someone on this board just paid 10 for a 300d(i cant remember who) with 70 some thousand miles, this one has less-- besides, thats a buy it now price.

i set the buy it now price on my old TiBook very high(1600 bux, 4 months ago, 1ghz model) and someone paid it within 30 minutes!

its worth it if someone pays it, if not, then it isnt!

That was AlanfromBigEasy. And it was a 240D for $10,000. But its a really nice car, and if you have the money, why not? Its gonna give him good use.

About the last 40 bids are from the same two guys, one of them only has one feedback. My guess is that one or both are shills. That price is crazy, but hope it's true.

Don’t be surprised if you see her on the block again in a few days. About a year ago there was a mint 240 up for auction with a $25,000 BIN price – I don’t recall if it ever sold.

Worse news then that was friday is when pick n pull puts out their new cars.....there was a 84' white Canadian version 300D turbo with 125k on in and it was mint inside. The only thing wrong outside was a "SMALL" dint in the back where license plate goes.

All the rubber and molding was perfect and in tact...EVEN the engine was good and they had a price tag that had said $3500 then a slash and then $899. I guess no one saw it coz it was out in the yard waiting to be picked clean. Had all the books and crap too. Made me wanna cry....so i just picked at it like everyone was gonna do...vacuum ,speakers,floor mates all that was small and clean.

had the weirdest stock turbo set up ive see.

oh it was white with tan interior

thats the kind of car you pull out the back-up computer for. sell your machine and turn a few tricks to buy!(the white 300, not the green 240)
