Though few in number, there are Euro 300D's in North America, some with manual transmissions. I'm driving one I found last spring, and my friend bought one a couple of months ago. I've seen a couple on eBay, one with a five-speed. The Euro spec cars are far simpler than those made for the North American market. Mine has neither air conditioning nor vacuum locks. It's truly peasant class all the way.

I suggest that you buy a 240D with a manual trans, which were sold by MB dealers in North America, and enjoy it while you look for the 300D. You might find that the 240 suits you fine.


'84 Euro 300D
'85 'merican 300D with all the fixins
