Exclamation FS: 1976 115 300D with 4-speed conversion

Hey all,

I'm not driving my old 115 300D 4-speed manual conversion anymore and it needs to go to someone who can have some fun with it. I've owned the car since 2011 and I did the 4-speed conversion with 240D parts probably 5 years ago. All MBZ 115 parts were used and new master cylinder, hose, and slave cylinder were used. I replaced the slave cylinder recently as it was leaking.

I also replaced the injector nozzles with Monarch ones and set pop pressure when I got the car.

Car has faded paint and a straight body. There is typical rust creeping around in the floorboards - the PO patched a hole in the left rear floor with an aluminum piece. The trunk floor was rusty but still there, so I painted it with Miracle Paint years ago. I have frankly ignored the other rust in the floor and not poked at it. I'll try to get it up in the air and take some pics this weekend.

Other issues:

* Heater fan inop; ambient airflow is kinda sufficient here in SC.
* A/C nonfunctional but I have a new York compressor that goes with it.
* Engine has more blowby than I wish it did; cap will sit on the hole and chatter around (ie, it won't blow off). Engine starts easily in any temp we get here in SC, compression was in the 350 range when I checked years ago, and it makes good power on the road without excessive smoke or oil use.
* Dash is cracked as typical. But, I have a perfect complete dash to go with it and two covers if you don't get to it right away. You could replace the dash when you do the heater blower (that was my plan).

The car is a nice driver and I'd probably trust it to go anywhere. That said, it's not perfect by any means.

I have several boxes of parts to go with it as well as a spare 4-speed trans that I picked up somewhere. You can have all the old auto trans stuff if you want as well; it worked and shifted fine when I took it out.

I'm in upstate SC, near where SC meets GA and NC.

Let me know what else you need to know. I'll try to check back here but haven't been following the forums for a long time.

Asking $1500.

-Dan
