4 speed 300 turbo

I have a 1978 300d 4 speed car. The original 240 engine was bad and the previous owner (a friend) installed a rebuilt 300d turbo engine. Also, has 15" alloys and 307 rear end from a SD. Front drive shaft had to be shortened along with some other odds and ends. It is a great combination. This car drives great and is fun to drive. It's a shame they are not imported like this. I guess the U.S. market will never support a large car with manual transmission.
BTW, I seem to get 29mpg no matter where I drive. I'm sure it would improve if I drove slower on the highway. I enjoy passing 300d automatic's. My trunk still shows the 240D emblem.
