1983 240D for sale - Near Baltimore

Greetings all! I'm not using this car as much as I used to, so it's time to send it to a new home. When I needed it, I used this car to commute 2-3 days a week and it never gave me any problems. Great for around town or highway driving and still turns heads.

- 3rd owner
- Power windows and sliding roof - all working
- Full size spare tire
- Original first aid kit, trunk tools, manuals and warning triangle
- CD player and updated speakers
- Engine block heater
- A/C works great, rebuilt in 2011 (over $2000)
- Original paint and wheels
- 30+ mpg highway
- Maintenance records and original window sticker
- Can be registered as Historic (in MD at least)


Recent work
- Regular oil and filter changes (most recent April 2014 including new engine air filter)
- Valve adjustments every 12K (most recent April 2014)
- 4 new Michelin tires in May 2013 ($400)
- New muffler and hangers (April 2013)
- New rear half shafts and differential fluid - Aug. 2013
- New glow plugs, belts and battery - Dec. 2013

Nice one for sure. Pointless saying if only I had 3 grand lying around and it weren't the other side of the country. I'd be surprised if you are not able to sell it quite easily.

Still on the market! Car will also come with an extra oil filter and valve cover gasket. I also have some left over oil I'll include.

Would you consider a trade for a 82bmw 320i? I have one I'm almost done restoring.

Sorry, trying to get down to 4 cars. If I had room though, another BMW would be on the short list...

It's a thermometer installed by the PO. The sensor is down behind the front bumper.

Yeah me too. I'd swap for my wagon... great looking example. Carr has done work for me as well. I sent the link up to Mechanicsburg to a nephew. Would be a great starter vehicle for the kid, especially since he's working this summer at a place that sells German cars...GLWS!
