1974 Mercedes Benz 240D

* Near Showroom Interior and Exterior
* Original Owner
* 155,000 miles
* Originally purchased in 1975, receipt included
* Air Conditioning Blows Cold
* Runs and Drives well
* New Tires
* New Battery
* Driven Daily from New until 1996
* Stored indoors Day and Night since New
* Run only on Diesel since New
* Original Paint
* Power Antenna works
* Power Sunroof works
* Original Becker radio (AM and FM) works


* All service records included
* Copy of the MB Service manual Included
* Original paperwork included
* Original Sales Brochure Included

Now the bad:

* Power Locks operate on vacuum, slow leak causes power locks not to work after sitting
* Gas gauge reads 3/8 of a tank until the fuel level is below that, reads correct below 3/8s of a tank
* Dash has cracked and is covered with a "new" plastic cover
* Seats have been recovered, with leather, receipts included
* Tires are new but I put on smaller tires than what is required. Not many 14" tires with sufficient load ratings to choose from.
* I was told the engine was replaced, still looking for the receipt
* The Odometer reads 137k, I was told that it was replaced at about 20k which means it has about 157k, however, speedometer reads 10% high which means fewer miles, clear as mud?
* This is a 33 year old car in original condition, do not expect a new car


I am selling the car for my uncle who lives in Fort Worth. He can answer any questions you may have. The car is located in The Woodlands, Texas, about 30 miles north of Houston.

If you have any questions, or I left anything major out, please give me a call,
