VIN# WDBAB23A2BB264048 Mileage: 116,800
with a 71-hp 2.4L inline four cylinder diesel engine, and a four-speed manual transmission, this was one of Mercedes Benz most popular platforms, with 2.7 million built from 1976-85. Although performance suffers, it manages 28 mpg in mixed traffic.
Exterior in Pastel Beige, only available in 1980-81, and not available in the US. Interior in Sienna Red MB-tex vinyl. The car was ordered with cruise control, air conditioning, passenger side mirror, Becker AM/FM radio with cassette, auto antenna, and rear defrost per the included factory Data Card. It was ordered without a sunroof.
Stored in covered conditions has made this a very fine example. The carpets and seats do not show the normal wear for a car of this mileage. The Coco mats give a period look.
