Description for Mercedes-Benz 200-Series 1966

For sale is a 1966 Mercedes 200D. Mechanically the car is excellent. It was purchased from a foreign car mechanic that drove it daily for 4 months. All engine and suspension work has been completed. Drives rock solid at 50-60 mpg. The bad is the rust. I purchased new floor pans from Mercedes Classic to replace the floorboards. This project seems to be too much for me to handle so I have decided to sell the car as is.
Work that should be done to this includes;
Repair front headlight damage.
New floor boards.
New carpet and headliner.
New paint.
Included in this sale is the complete service manual and misc parts shown in the photos.
This is a great vehicle to restore or to salvage for another body.

The second series of 4-cylinder cars lasted just a few years. Production of the new 200, 200D and 230 models commenced in July, 1965,[2] at the Sindelfingen plant. The 200 and 200D replaced the 190c and 190Dc models respectively. The engine in the 200 had the bore increased from 85 to 87mm, giving a 1988cc displacement, and was fitted with twin carburetors (the 190c had a single carburetor). The OM621 diesel engine in the 200D was essentially identical to that of the 190Dc (which was actually a 1988 c.c. unit despite the car being labelled as a '190') but was improved by using a five main bearing crankshaft instead of the original three.

Visually, the second series models had the front indicators relocated from the top of the front fenders to below the headlights. At the rear, the tail lights were squared off and the chrome trim was revised to feature two horizontal trim strips instead of chrome-trimmed tail fins. All models now featured air outlets with chrome trim on the C-pillars (identical to the W111 models). Inside, there were very few changes except all models now featured reclining front seats (excluding the bench seats), which had previously been an option on the 190c and 190Dc. The 230 had a central armrest in the back seat as standard.

Further changes occurred in late 1967, with the beginning of the 1968 model year. 1968 models were equipped with collapsible steering columns to meet American safety regulations. Mirrors, interior door handles, and dashboard switchgear were also changed, matching those on the later W108/114/115 series cars.[5]

All three of the W110 second series cars ended production in January 1968 with the introduction of the W115 220 and 220D.
