4 speed with DS for $179. DS is probably worth that alone, I believe it is the correct size for the 123/126.

This guys been trying to sell that car for a long time, I remember seeing it at least 6 months ago on craigslist. It was like twice the price though. Might be worth going down there and trying to pull some part numbers off the ABS valve.

Engine maybe, would be amazing to see if you could cram the 4 wheel drive system into it! You would probably have to basically build a new car and just make it look like a 123. I think you need to buy that.

1984 Mercedez 300D - ONLY 166K MILES - $500 (Boston)

http://boston.craigslist.org/gbs/cto/1648340891.html

Quote:For sale is a 1984 Mercedes 300 Turbo Diesel. Car has only 166K miles on it. Has only had 18K miles driven on the car in the past 5 years. Had brand new glow plugs installed in 2008 and car started throughout the last two Boston winters after new glow plugs were installed without ever being plugged in over night. In addition there were also new brakes both front and rear done on this car in 2008 and has had less than 5K in miles put on car since brakes were done. The car is being sold as is and is currently being stored in Cambridge. I will plan to set up appointments for this weekend for those interested in purchase. Payment for this car will be "cash" only. Engine runs great and has had no issues. This car was professional maintained and serviced by the Mercedes Benz dealership Miller Motor cars in Greenwich, CT until I bought the vehicle in 2005.

Quote:2005 Mercedes 2.7 Liter Turbo Diesel Engine for core. This is a high mileage, rebuildable engine. It is not a running engine. This engine is due for rebuild. Selling at less than core charge pricing. $1000 FIRM. Engine block, head and internal hard parts are 2005. The injectors and fuel system are 2003. The injectors had about 3000 miles on them when engine was replaced. Fuel rail, injector lines, oil filter housing, oil cooler and intake are included. Aluminum engine mounts are from a Dodge Sprinter. Oil pan available too. We also have a front crossmember, control arms, Charge-air cooler, aluminum wheels, tires and a few other pieces available. Dodge dealer's charging $2000 core charge on these engines so I would think $1000 is a smokin' deal condsidering the newer injectors. Harmonic balancer and a good starter ring gear is included. NO starter, NO alternator.

That heater hose might be feeding a factory accessory fuel heater, I had one on my wagon for about a year and then the fuel side of it started breaking down and clogging my filters.

Nice looking Euro. says one owner, but the discription sounds like he is the second owner. for the milage and driven in NY or NJ given the feeling a repaint. says garage kept, maybe so but by the look of the crusty aluminium under the hood and some rusty pieces on the under side, it has seen salt.
noticed an antenna on the r/f fender, and the right mirror looked like electric, maybe an add on.
it does have the Sanden air compressor.

Over all looks like in good condition, but price is still high.

1969 Mercedes Benz 1113 Truck Race Car Hauler. This vehicle was used by Team Valour in England for the Formula 3 campaign of Eddie Cheever. There is a crew sleeping area. It will haul 4 Formula Cars on two tiers. Factory built by Mercedes Benz. Six cylinder Diesel with 5 speed trans. It needs a full restoration. This truck has been parked for several years and the cab has rust. Great hauler for your Vintage Racers or Show Cars. Ono is near Fort Indiantown Gap Military Base about 8 miles north of Lebanon.

This post actually talks about a sailboat that makes the SS Minnow -- after it ran aground -- look like the QM2, but ends with the existential question, "Oh, and does any one need some old diesel Mercedes wagons?"

I've heard people on this forum like that kind of question...
Diesel:
79 240D -- auto

Gas/Petrol/Benzin:
02 RAV4 -- daily driver
94 Jetta -- obsolete for 24 HOL -- heading back to the street
85 K5 Blazer -- 377 SBC, 144ci huffer
68 GTO -- slowly rusting in garage

Dropnosky, you can`t have it, you have too many cars now Big Grin

That wagon sure looks familiar, maybe the E-bay one I saw was the same color. I think it was a yr ago I saw it. that would be cool to have.
