1975 Mercedes-Benz 200D
Reg. Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 11511510314584
The Mercedes-Benz W114 and W115 models were designed by French auto designer Paul Bracq, were first introduced in 1968 and ran through until 1976 when they were replaced with the W123 series. They were all distinguished by names relating to their engine size – Mercedes also launched its first 5-cylinder Diesel Engine (OM617) in this car.
The Mercedes-Benz W115 is known to be a very durable car, in 2004 a Greek taxi driver donated his 1976 Mercedes-Benz 240D to the Mercedes-Benz Museum with 4.6 Million Kilometers on the odometer, which is recognised as the Mercedes-Benz with the highest recorded mileage known to date.
Dating from 1975, this very original and unmolested Mercedes-Benz 200D was delivered from new in Maple Yellow with a black interior, and fitted with a manual gearbox. Interestingly this Mercedes is believed to have had only two Italian owners from new, and has only 108,000 kilometres recorded. With a rust free body and good paintwork, excellent chrome-work and a lovely and hardly worn interior, the 200D is said to drive beautifully.
Offered with a UK V5 document, and current UK MoT certificate, this is a hugely enjoyable classic car that can accommodate the whole family.
