1974 Mercedes-Benz W115 240D 2.4 diesel from North America
The best car I've ever had
The brakes failed in the highway and I had to use the emergency brake.
The transmission would not retain parking brake.
I love this car. All my friends and family tell me it looks like an old school gangster car. I got it painted 1 month ago. It looks great.
I love the big windshield. It gives you a lot of visibility all around.
The seats are very comfortable. It feels as if you weren't wearing seat belts.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Love my Mercedes over 20 years. 74 240D. Somewhat better than a Rolls Royce.

Hello to all. I've just discovered the 1974 W115's a few weeks ago, & have fallen in love with the car, and would like to buy an automatic. I have been looking at one, the owner says it has 3 gears. (3 speed automatic?) All my research shows only 4 speed automatics. Are there 3 speed automatics? Could the owner be wrong about his description? Or could there be something wrong with this car's gear shifting? Any info anyone can tell me will be greatly appreciated.
Are there any other issues unique to automatic W 115's I should be aware of when shopping for one?
Thanks & Best wishes to all.
