I'm brimming with envy. Beautiful car.

Was that model 300d equipped with a OM617 like the later models?

That's a geat looking car. Love the two-tone....Those 115 cars have great visibility, unlike modern (****ty) MB's.

That's beautiful, love those two tones. But I do not know much about the W115, how different are they from W123's? I remember reading about how they corner a lot stiffer than W123's which sounds pretty nice.

Thanks

Best part is the car, and its parts car cost me in total 400 dollars. So with all the money invested in it, including inspections and registration, it still cost me under 1000 dollars! Fixing odds and ends as I go along, but the engine seems to be tip top. When I had it sitting this winter it fired up like a champ in the coldest weather. We'll see...

Very nice. I like the odd combination of colors with the black center console and brown seats. And a two tone! Wow, that's rare for a diesel.

Wish I could post a pic of mine.
