Not one mention of documentation. Many cars from the dealer were purchased with that many miles on them.

It's just been sitting in a sealed humidity controlled garage for the last 29 years?

Yeah....who spends 25k+ on a brand new Mercedes-Benz, during a gas shortage, uses it for 1-2 months, and puts it away.....sounds way too good to be true

Exactly, nobody in their right mind unless they just had gobs of money would do that and the owner of that car definitely doesn't fit into that category.

People with lots of money did not buy 240Ds, especially not ones with manual windows and a 4 speed manual. This car was designed and built as an economical, durable, and affordable Benz.
Thousands were used as taxis in Europe, equipped just like this one, minus A/C.

Rich people would own something like 450 SEL 6.9 at that time. And drive them, not park them for years.

^^^^That little 99k model, if it's rust/accident free, will be a real beauty for someone. Orient red on them, is maybe the best color there is.

I agree Orient Red is a nice color. It's weird how it can look burgundy to near bright red in full sunlight when polished up!
