WTB 240 D Motor

I recently purchased a very nice '74 240D with an engine problem, originally believed to be a head gasket. Turns out problem is much deeper. Looking for a replacement motor in good running condition. This car was advertised for sale about a year ago in Bring your Trailer. Check out the ad. If anyone has a diesel motor and wants a car, alternatively I will sell the car, but my preference is to get her running, beautiful car no rust,

Thanks,

Rusty

What are you hoping to get if you decide to sell the car? The original asking price at bring a trailer ($6750) might be high for a car without a running engine.

Also, as requested above, your location would be helpful. Thanks.

240D

I'm located in Virginia Beach. If I'm not successful with finding a good motor. I would sell the car for 3500$, new tires and new blower motor etc, about 3K worth of work about a year ago.
This car is as rust free as one you will find, as clean underneath as on top.
regards,
rusty

Found a motor

Thanks to all that have responded to my request for an engine. I have found one through a fellow Pelican that should fill the bill.
Thanks again,

Rusty
