1974 Mercedes-Benz 200-Series Additional Info:

Up for sale is my '74 Mercedes 240 D. This has been a very good car for me and I really liked it. But last summer the engine gave out, so I put in an engine from another Mercedes I formerly used. The body of the donor car had some problems, so I kept the drive train and some body parts. The engine of the donor car always ran very good and would start in rather cold weather. I am now under pressure by the local bureaucrats to reduce the number of vehicles at
my house, so this one has to go. I hate to see it go because it has been such a good car for me. This car has aluminum wheels, good tires all around, the glass is good, windows all work (manual), transmission shifts like it is supposed to,
all 4 floor panels have been replaced, the under side is not pristine but is acceptable. After the replacement engine was installed I tried to start it, but it didn't start for me, However, I know for a fact that the engine is good and with a
certain amount of tinkering it will run. The car gets about 27-28 mpg on road. This has the very desirable 4 speed manual transmission, which I liked. I hate to see this car go because it has been good to me. Interior is acceptable but
shows it's age. If anyone has any questions you can call or text me at 217-721-6664. I seldom text, so it you send a text I will probably call you in return. Pick up is the responsibility of buyer. There is no reserve. 66
