4-Speeds 12-Carbons 24-Hyrdogens: 1974 Mercedes Benz 240D

It doesn't take much to be faster on the road than a Mercedes-Benz 240D with a slushbox automatic transmission...but an easy upgrade from danger zone slow to moderately livable matching your 62 horsepower oil furnace with a 4-speed manual box.  I've driven both versions for many miles and can say that the 4-speed manual feels as fast as the 300D with the slushbox...and that isn't as bad as it sounds. Find this 1974 Mercedes Benz 240D offered for $5000 in Modesto, CA via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.

  1. Looks great but "odometer: 86000 title status: salvage" really needs some explaining for $5000

    All it needs is a Moroccan taxi sign, so tempting and near where I am staying...

    I wish that Mercedes made an equivalent car now, what does Mercedes sell as a taxi today?
    Off to I guess

  2. 86,000 stares from the ladies too.
