German Parking Green: 1973 Mercedes-Benz 220D

Call me old fashioned or a fuddy-duddy, or whatever you want, just don’t call me Shirley…anyway…where was I…oh yes, call me persnickety, but I think this is a lot of coin to ask for an old diesel Mercedes-Benz. It might be the older (and stately…er?) W115 generation Benz executive car (instead of the more common W123 Diesel Benz you see rolling around streets of Calcutta, Cairo, or Cincinnati) but it is still a relic of a time when traffic didn’t exceed 55mph very often. But this car really harkens back to an era of Princes, Sultans, and Maharajas and I’m obsessed and mystified by that shade of green. Find this 1973 Mercedes-Benz 220D offered for $12,500 in Antrim, NH via craigslist. Tip from Cory.

1973 Mercedes-Benz 220d. 2.2 diesel 4 speed manual. All original only 38k miles. Bought from original owner 2 years ago. Was in a garage since 1992 then i bought it. Since then i rebuilt fuel system, all new brake hoses calipers, pads and rotors, new tires, clutch master and slave cylinders. Original paint in immaculate shape no rust anywhere. Exterior 9/10 interior 10/10. Rubber is in good shape. Original owner installed a turbo in the 80’s. Runs great. Only issue is i went to reset the trip last time i took it out and now the odometer will not move, something is stuck if i have time i will adress the issue. Other than that the car is 100%. Asking $12500
