THE OVERVIEWOffered for an appreciating new owner is this rare classic one-owner 1974 Mercedes Benz 240D diesel sedan!Finished in what loos to be ALL ORIGINAL powder blue paint over navy blue this 41 year-old BLUE CALIFORNIA LICENSE PLATE sedan sports a superb running four cylinder diesel engine mated to a desirable factory 4 speed manual transmission. The working five-digit odometer of this virgin Benz shows just over 88900 miles but a closer look at the meticulous service history shows that the car has that many miles on the rebuilt engine I have a small forty plus year-old notebook that shows every single maintenance and fuel fillup on the car since new! It is quite the obsessive compulsive sight to behold. And yes it is included in the sale for the new owner along with the ORIGINAL CALIFORNIA "PINK SLIP" TITLE. This very special sedan is quite a find for the Mercedes aficcionado or for someone who wants a cool well-preserved classic. Even the factory radio still works well as do all of the other controls on this beauty available here..... for less than the cost of the sales tax alone on a new Benz!PLEASE CALL650-307-2251 FOR QUESTIONSTEST DRIVES AND/ORMECHANICAL INSPECTIONS. THE BODY AND TRIMThe exterior of this 1974 Benz is in good to very good original 99.99% clean and dry rust-free condition throughout with still solid paint finish and nice original chrome bumpers and the original color-keyed hub caps with excellent rubber on the tires! I would rate the exterior of this car a solid 7.5 on a scale of 1-10 with only minor imperfections including various scratches nicks and other light blemishes. This is still a very handsome classic!

THE INTERIORThe interior of this non-smoker 240D is in good ALSO VERY ORIGINAL overall condition with working factory stereo and lights blinkers horn all in working order. Imperfections inside the car include a tattered original driver seat heat cracking on the vinyl dash worn carpet areas and taped door pockets. with just a little tlc this cockpit could be made close to new again!

THEDRIVING EXPERIENCEThis old Benz starts perfectly with excellent running engine nice shifting transmission tight yet supple suspension with solid and secure handling.
