cheap 240D 4spd in Boston - $750

I have no association with seller, just found this with Ad Hunt'r.


1981 Mercedes 240D Turbo Diesel

Sounds like a good deal, if the ad is on the level. Hope somebody on this list is close enough to check it out and find that it is indeed a good deal. And of course keep us posted about it!

This was my search for "Mercedes diesel"

I'm local and saw the ad, too. There's definitely some rust at the driver's rear jack point in the picture. At this price, people around here know what they have. I expect it's probably somewhat of a basket case in regard to underbody rust. Most local W123s are.

Unfortunately, I don't have the time to check it out for anyone. It's probably at least an hour drive from me as it is.

"This 1981 Mercedes 240D Turbo Diesel is a 4 door sedan that runs great, the clutch is good and it is a 4 speed. Got the car from an Estate sale and it can be driven as or restored.
$750.00 or best offer. Call 603-xxx-xxxx to see."


yeah, he thinks he has a 240 turbo diesel 'cause that's what the trunk says, and it's listed as 4 wheel drive....guy bought it at an estate sale and knows virtually nothing about it

Point taken. Normally, I would have caught that, too. I haven't slept much in the past month. We have a newborn in the house.

Thanks. Not going into my life story, but after years of fertility issues, my wife and I are on cloud 9.
