VA Inspected Until 8/16
This has a inline 4 cly diesel engine, 4spd manual box.
We drive it quite regularly. Always starts in any kind of weather. When it got down to 18' F here this winter, she started right up.
Has great brakes, steers like any other w123 car we have owned. Numerous front end bits have been replaced a few years ago.
Top speed is around 80mph. We get around 30ish MPG.
No rot in the floors, and or trunk. Only real rust to speak of is the bottom of the front fenders. Would be almost perfect otherwise.
All the windows, and sun roof work well. Heater blows hot.
It has been well maintained it's whole life. With that kind of mileage- it would have to be! Runs and drives like it has just a ¼ of that. Shifts well.
We have numerous service records on it. Even the original lot window sticker.
I have recently done, and or installed the following:
Monark Injector Nozzels
New Timing chain, tensioner -OEM parts
Glow plugs& holes reamed
Ignition Lock Vacuum Switch
Rear diff fluid change
All motor, and trans mounts
Oil filter housing gasket
Engine oil change& filter
Have some other parts to go with it(gaskets and things).
Has fairly new shocks.
Some things that are not so great would be:
That Fender rust
The right Mirror is stuck, has a little one on it for now.
A chunk of foam missing from the wheel. Haven't a clue as too why.
The front seats sag a tad to their door. Fairly common among higher MB cars.
No A/C as of now. Has had in the past 10 years 1000's of dollars spent on it. Never got to looking at it yet.
The idle control cable is broken. Only is a minor inconvenience when starting cold. Thankfully it warms up very quickly.
As with most of these W123's, the fuel gauge has a mind of its own. Thankfully it is great on diesel, so it has never bothered us
One of the yellow fog lenses has a crack-works fine though.
Vacuum door locks are non functioning.
In one of the underside pictures, you can see the drivers side floor is a kind of blacker than the rest. It was due to a oil filter housing leak. Just fixed that as the pictures were taken. A small drip adds up over time!
So in other words, it's rough around the edges. A good, solid, dependable car would best describe it. Used with care, and respect.
She is ready to drive away today. Tires are in good shape. Even comes with a full tank of diesel. Also every Mercedes Official repair guide I have(pdf) format.
Of course she has scrapes, dings, as something like this would. It is not perfect, but damn dependable.
The kind of car you don't worry about in the parking lot!

I always like other vehicles-such as. Peugeot, Citroen, Panhard, Renault, Hillman(Rootes Group Stuff),Lada,Trabant,NSU,DKW,-you can get the idea. If somebody out there likes this 240d, and has something of the above-drop me a line...
Would like to receive a deposit of $150.00 through paypal within 24 hours of listing ending. The car is to be payed in full, and picked up within 1 week(I'm willing to work with the buyer on this).
You can drive, tow,pull,ship- even use a blimp if you like. What ever it may be, its up to you to figure out.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, etc.
GOOD LUCK & HAPPY BIDDING!!
