Mercedes-Benz W115

Spotted at a used car dealership in Erie, PA was this beautifully original Mercedes 240 D. 
This circa 1976 model used the 2.4L OM616 diesel engine producing 65 horsepower. This example has only 55,000 original miles, what appears to be the original paint and sports a dark blue MB-Tex interior. The fog lights are not original but are period correct units marked "Iodine"... the height of lighting technology in the 1970s. No price was given on this car, but its condition would certainly make it at the top of the scale for this model.
