1978 Mercedes-Benz 200-Series Base Sedan 4-Door Description

See description, not currently driveable but if you know these it shouldn't take much to be back on the road and great. To note- I have 4 matching darker brown wheel covers (like the ones on the rears in the photos) but only 2 of the matching body-colored ones (like on the fronts). I accidentally broke the odometer shortly after buying it by resetting the trip while driving away from the gas station after filling it up, but it hasn't been driven muchsince then. Maybe 2000 miles, but I've overestimated the number for the sake of the listing. Tires are good, brakes are good, engine runs great once warm, I've just not been messing with it because of the hard start due to the glow plug regulator issue. Would hate to make it worse if it is an easy fix or replacement part. I just don't know enough about dieselsand have too much else going on right now. Same with the clutch, should just be the hose that I naively didn't replace when I did the other one. It engaged and released just fine before it lost pressure and I saw the puddle beneath the car when moving it in my driveway. Please reach out with any questions and I'll do my best.I'll help with whatever shipping arrangement you prefer, but costs are the buyers. If payment is received I can arrange *short-term* storage until you can take delivery, but don't ask me if I'll store it for you for 6 months if you aren't even bidding. Please be reasonable, and I'll do whatever I can to make this a smooth process for the buyer. If you're local and want to come see it then let me know. I do reserve the right to end the auction early due to local listings, but will not do so until I've contacted those involved in any bidding. I'll keep an eye on the action and if it gets close to reserve without hitting it then we'll work something out. Thanks for looking.

. Lowered the reserve. Moving at the end of this month now, so storage until 7/31 is still feasible, beyond that we'd have to sort something out. If you found a place near me I'd certainly help make sure the car got there, but it'd be on your dime. Please reach out with any questions thanks.
