This is a very nice 1983 Mercedes 240 Diesel with 187,744 miles. We haven’t had one of these cars in a long time, and this one is in very nice condition considering its age and mileage. It isn't a show car, but this 240D is an everyday usable driver with the nice patina of an older vehicle. The power sunroof, air conditioning, heater, etc are all working.

** The owner was a older gentleman who purchased this car twenty-one years ago. He became unable to drive anymore and decided to donate this Mercedes it to a non-profit organization with which he was affiliated. We handle many vehicles for non-profit and charitable organizations. We sell most of them to dealerships and through dealer networks, but we also offer some of the unusual and exceptional vehicles to the public on ebay. These vehicles are generally donated by individuals who feel very strongly about the charity that will benefit from the sale of their vehicle.

I’m not as familiar with a vintage Mercedes as an enthusiast might be, but we checked it out and I drove this 240D around for some errands and I’ll tell you everything we know about it: The engine starts easily and runs well. The transmission shifts easily and the clutch engages smoothly with lots of grab. The whole driveline feels good. The owner recently installed a complete set of Goodyear tires, which are still nearly new. The brake pads are in great shape as well. The oil & filters were replaced last week and this Mercedes is ready to be picked up today.

The photos of this 240D are just the way we received it, with only a wash and vacuum. The cream exterior looks nice and is not banged up. There are some rust spots on the bottom of the rear quarter panels although the rockers are quite solid. All of the exterior trim pieces and body side moldings are intact, tight and in very good condition. The interior is in really nice condition. There are the usual cracks on the dash pad, but most of the trim is in excellent condition. The seats show almost zero wear, and the even the driver seat is firm and not sagging like many older Mercedes I've driven. The carpeting is clean without any holes or damage. The headliner is also tight and in great shape. This has been a non-smoker owned vehicle, and there aren’t any interior odors or burn marks.

There isn't any accident history, and we have the title which is clean and clear. This a solid classic car and this 240D could be your daily driver without the need to perform any service.
