1974 Mercedes-Benz 200-Series Description:

1974 240D Mercedes-Benz (Like new - no expense spared restoration)

Vin: 11511710044267

Miles: 102566

History: The car was purchased new and has been driven by the family patriarch most of its life. The kids loved it so much it was the recipient of a total no expense spared restoration in 2014.This is not the kind of car that gets restored but being in well off family it had sentimental value so it got everything. All documents are present and it has the data card and plate issued to the owner with it. It's been maintained to high standard all its life and received over $25,000.00 in 2014 to take it to almost new status.

Engine & Transmission: The manual transmission shifts smoothly and runs strong. The 3.0L OM617 I5 straight 5 diesel engine was put in (factory crate) engine and the transmission as well. All the suspension was redone, gas tank, radiator and breaks are new.

Body: The paint on the car is very nice. I would grade the paint an 8 on a scale from 1-10. It has some small rock chips on the front by the headlamps (see photos). The rubber and chrome are good and there are no dents or waviness when you look down the car. The car is free of rust and corrosion except for the bottom of the rear quarter panels. The tires are in great shape and have 80% tread left, the chrome rims are in excellent condition.

Interior: The leather interior was ordered from the factory and has been restored, it has new matts and the hard to get to blower was rebuilt. The A/C blows cold. The dash is free of cracks. An aftermarket radio is in dash and four modern speakers put in. The carpet is original and worn in places. The steering wheel is very nice and glovebox is very clean. The door panels look new.

Summary: This is awonderful original example as you don't see these cars in as new condition very often. Some people restore cars for money this car was restored out of family passion. Now it is time for the next owner to enjoy the car.
