Sweet Tooth: 1972 Mercedes-Benz 220D W115

As I’m sorting through the good stuff from my kids’ Halloween haul, I’m reminded of the a guy (and everybody knows a guy like this) who claims he doesn’t like sweets.  Oh yeah, somehow this guy is free from thousands of years of human evolution and has some kind of alien taste buds — because a normal person should appreciate sweet just as much as the other tastes like salt, sour, and bacon.  Anyway, the guy who doesn’t like sweets is like the guy who says he doesn’t like to drive fast…so why did you buy a sports car Mr Slow?  I actually knew a guy who drove an S2000 for years and never put the needle (okay, it is a digital tach…) above 5,000 rpm…so today we’ve got a treat for the slow driver.  Find this 1972 Mercedes-Benz 220D here on eBay bidding for $2,300 with a few hours to go located in Philadelphia, PA.

When I say slow driver, I’m not just talking about people who drive cautiously when in school zones, or near parks — that is actually a good thing for everybody, seriously — I’m talking about the guy who buys the brand new Corvette and then spends his weekend polishing it and driving the speed limit.  What is the point of those horsepower if you don’t use ’em once in a while, so for that guy, this is the perfect car. 

Under the hood is a 2.2 liter OM615 inline-4 diesel puts out 59 horsepower and 93 ft-lbs of torque…but first you MUST feast your eyes on the chocolate brown interior.  They just don’t make stuff like the used to…IT IS SOOOO BROWNNNNNNN.
