Classic Car Overview

We all love a diesel Benz. After all, they have a fine luxury look but a tough-as-nails reputation. And this 1976 Mercedes-Benz 240D represents that perfectly. With two-tone paint and premium features (including a sunroof) its a great luxury cruiser, and it has a hardy heart with a reputation that could drive you to the moon and back. This makes the right first impression. A diesel Mercedes is the kind of car that was driven by your college professor all through his tenure or passed through multiple family generations. So what you want is a look of originality. The Light Brown paint has that ideal 1970s-style distinction, right down to the color-matched wheel covers. Its actually a respray a shade lighter than the Original Topaz brown seen in the door jams, but it has aged into the right look you want for this sedan. The same goes for the brightwork, which has the well-respected completeness while also a hint of patina for originality. This one really does have the impression you love about these W115 sedans, right down to the details, like the fog lights up front and the way the doors close with the reassuring THUNK of over-built quality. Inside continues the feeling of preserved quality. The seats retain the unique Mercedes-Benz texture and hallmark headrests. Your instruments are elegantly simple factory VDO gauges with clear white-on-black markings. And the steering wheel is the now-classic padded wheel built for safety. There are provisions to give you easier upgrades into nice features like air conditioning and an AM/FM/CD stereo. But what we know what youve really noticed is the sunroof. Its a rare option that help define this Benzs classic cruiser image. Lift the hood and see the 2.4-liter diesel motor that helped Mercedes build its reputation for bulletproof cars. These have been put into the most rugged vehicles on the planet and proved that they know how to go the distance. But despite the tough reputation this one remains smooth. Its believed to be original to the car, and it fires up easily and idles nicely: just like a well-respected classic should. These have never been speed demons, but you already knew that. Instead, Mercedes built these to be effortless cruisers. They knew how to handle the Autobahn with features like the four-speed automatic transmission and fully independent suspension: rare features for a 70s machine. Plus, the power steering and four-wheel disc brakes are all part of a package that reminds you this is the classic youll enjoy driving. The well-respected feeling of this sedan even extends to the paperwork. It includes the original title documentation, Mercedes buildsheet, original warranty card, and owners manual packet. This is that ideal robust German classic youve been wanting for, and the price is so obtainable. Thats why you know you need to hurry up and call today!
