Classic and Slow: 1979 Mercedes-Benz 240D

A freshly painted car with photos taken in the rain is always a sketchy prospect, but if you are looking for classic Becker radio equipped W123 diesel, you could do worse than a 240D with the manual 4-speed gearbox. Inspect the paint carefully and enjoy. Find this 1979 Mercedes-Benz 240D offered for $5900 in Hollis, ME via craigslist. Tip from Carter.
