Kinda of pricy for a 76. missing the hood star, pine needles on the grill,could have spent lot of time parked under a tree. better check the hinge pockets for leaf mold and rust. might be a lot of needles down in the air intake also.

might want to check out the quality of the rebuild engine, and paper work. only 178K and a rebuild? I think the spedo only has 5 digits, so could have more miles. don`t know if this model has the same problem as the 123 with the spedo not working with the gear slippage.

sits really high in the front end.

there were three HP ratings on the OM616...

1) Not much power
2) Even less power
3) Not nearly enough power!! 240D w/auto

Anyone that thinks a 240D is slow drives too fast.

80 240D Naturally Exasperated, 4-Spd 388k DD 150mph spedo 3:58 Diff

We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works
