Austin,TX NA 1980 300d Craigs List

It is listed as MANUAL TRANSMISSION...
but on a whim I had him actually look at it again today...
and it is

AUTOMATIC..

but if someone needs a five cylinder NON Turbo...

he needs to get if off the property by Friday since the house is sold...

1980 Mercedes Benz 300D- 4D (Classic)

I have no connection except that my heart was beating fast thinking it was a five speed manual shift....

For what it's worth, the "Ben's Workshop" license plate surround on the back of the car suggests that, at one point, the car was owned by someone who didn't mind spending a lot of money on car maintenance....

I'm getting ready to sell both my '85 wagon and '81 240d 4spd.

Wagon is here in Austin and the 240 is at the parent's farm near Abilene.

Does the 240 have working AC ?
Is it the type one AC controls.... basically ' wires ' ?
Are you going to drive it to Austin to sell it ?

The 240D may come to Austin if I get the wagon out of the way. I have very little room for additional cars.

I drive the 240d around the little town close to their farm, but I don't know if I'd care to take a 2.5hr trip with lots of areas with no T-mobile coverage along the way... I'd have them trailer it down here where I could clean it up a bit before sale. If the right offer came in that wanted to pick it up from them, it would be considered.

I'll get together pics and good/notgood list. The A/C is the non-functional. It's the older manual style and I've not troubleshooted it beyond knowing the compressor was shot. I took that belt off and never gave it much more thought.
