1981 240D aka “EuroTrash


Recommended Posts

Some of you seen this car, but for others, here’s the spill on it.

1981 Mercedes Benz 240D diesel

4 cylinder, 72 horsepower 

0-60: yes, maybe under 30 seconds

30mpg on the Highway hauling ass at 65mph 

Was and automatic car, but the flex disk on the driveshaft at the transmission said “YEET!” and caused some damage.

Swapped the car over to manual transmission late last year. Simple swap on these cars. No fabrication required.

Using it as my daily 💩box driver from New Albany to Olive Branch. I park it in Hot Rod parking just to yank everyone’s chain.

Starting to do small items to help with durability and appearance.
