purchased a '82 240D today

white exterior with blue interior, automatic with around 258k miles. Car had been sitting awhile. Put a battery in it, started it up and drive it 60 miles home. Drove out good and it seems to be a solid, Georgia car with only a small amount of surface rust under the drivers door.

The man I purchased it from has just recently stopped driving (83+yrs old) and was a MB diesel nut for most of his life.

Jim, sounds like a good catch. Automatic 240Ds seem to me more available these days. Not sure I could get comfortable with one, but they seem to be as long lived as the manuals, or more so. Good luck, Jim

You already have three Mercedes in your signature, so this has to be your fourth.

Was this one purchased for one of your sons?

There are a couple guys looking for one of these cars so I figured I would pick this up and may try to sell one of the other ones. It has gotten to the point around here that if a no rust 123 that runs/drives good comes up you best buy it if you want it. Ones that are in good condition and no rust are getting harder and harder to find.
