'73 220D manual trans

Hi All,

I have a chance to pick up a 1973 220 with manual transmission. Car has been repainted and the body is solid. Not sure about miles or engine, but the car looks good. I need another car like a hole in the head, but have always wanted the manual trans diesel. Asking price is $3900, but my guess is it could be had for less. Still seems a bit high, what do you think?

Hi there, I'd need to see the car, but that price sounds a tad steep for a W115 in just about any shape. These are wonderful cars, but they don't typically go for much over $2k in this day and age. My very first MB was a '73 220D with a four speed and power steering/brakes, and not much else for luxury appointments. Loved that car.

+1 on seeing the car. Either way, 3900 is way to much for that car. I would only pay half of that.
