4-Speeds 12-Carbons 24-Hyrdogens: 1974 Mercedes Benz 240D

It doesn’t take much to be faster on the road than a Mercedes-Benz 240D with a slushbox automatic transmission…but an easy upgrade from danger zone slow to moderately livable matching your 62 horsepower oil furnace with a 4-speed manual box.  I’ve driven both versions for many miles and can say that the 4-speed manual feels as fast as the 300D with the slushbox…and that isn’t as bad as it sounds. Find this 1974 Mercedes Benz 240D offered for $5000 in Modesto, CA via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.
