For Sale: 1979 Mercedes-Benz 240 in Carey, Illinois

Vehicle Description

This is a delightfully cute Mercedes 240D sedan. Finished in Ivory beige with Brown MB-tex, the car presents in very nice and certainly way above average condition. This was a Californian & Texan car for most of its life and in later years resided in Maine. The car has had 3 owners (first 2 in California) who added most of the mileage as a town commuter. It was later owned in Maine by an elderly chap who used her sparingly. She was a regularly maintained example and recently serviced. Mechanically the car is in good shape with no known issues. Just a quick look under the hood is testament to how well this Mercedes has been maintained, with several new genuine Mercedes Benz parts used to include the battery. She drives strong and sure. No rattles and looseness over rough roads but tight and firm. Body and paint is pretty good. She does have some rust bubble popping through on some panels but interestingly enough, the underside is relatively rust free and clean. Just a few spots on the exterior body panels as shown. The chrome wheel arch mouldings cover up a few spots as well. The car is accident free and the paint mostly original (hood previously repainted). It is very shiny and consistent with only minor chips here and there but nothing glaringly so. There is no crazing or cracks in the paint. A good indication of how a W123 has been garaged is the headlights and grille. These are in very good condition with no "chalking" of the headlight louvres. The interior is in lovely condition with the interior only showing modest use. She is in great shape with no unsightly wear on the seats, carpets or headliner. The dash does have a couple of small cracks but far less than typical. The wood inserts are great. Have a close look at the buttons and switch gear; they are all in good condition. The trunk is super clean with its original rubber mat in good condition. She is also a non-smoker car so clean and sweet. The car presents with all its original features including its factory Becker radio. A/C blows cool, not cold so attention is needed there. The antennae does not fully retract but pretty much everything else is doing what it should. Tyres are brand new, fitted on original MB wheels with factory hubcaps. A set of Mercedes mud-flaps with white logos finish off the car nicely, I think. Not much more can be said but to invite you to take a close look at the many, many photos of this great Mercedes 240D sedan. Truly in good condition, not a show-car by any means but a beautiful example nonetheless. Surely amongst one of the better examples available for sale today.
