I am the proud owner of a 230.4 live in New South Wales Australia and agree that the car is one of the most comfortable I have owned. This model does not appear to have been a great seller in this Country, but the 4 cylinder motor is smooth. I have friends with MGs etc. but the Merc is a better car for touring etc.

I am also a proud owner of 230.4 in Hong Kong. The motor is running smoothly, however the rubber sealing along the windows and doors are pretty much worn. Does anyone know where can I get a full set of weather strip?

Hello, I own a 1974 white-red interior 230 (it is not badged as 230.4), which drives like new, in San Jose, Costa Rica.
The car is definately a looker, and with less than 150 000 km. on the odometer, the car is one of the best MBenz I have purchased.
It´s worth its weight in gold.

I've had my 1974 230.4 for about 6 months - love it. White with a beige vinyl interior. Air cond. 335,000km's on the clock and it hasn't missed a beat since I've had it. Mine doesn't have power steering - does anybody know if this was an option?

I've just join "the club" of W115 classic owner.
Mine is 200 with 71.000 kilometres on the clock and still in original factory paintwork.

My Mercedes (w115) 230.4 doesn't have the a/c system and I'm looking for it. I would like to known if somebody knows where the fan and the other parts like the condenser and the compressor goes?
Thanks very much.

HI, Also proud owner of a 74 240D in San Francisco, CA. It's a great car, never any problems that have cost more the $50.00 to fix and the mechanics do it for free b/ it's a great old car. It's hard to know how many miles are on it b/ I have flipped the odometer >100,000 miles and the each owner before me did the same thing. Probably over 400k miles between the three of us.
Smoke - I run it on Bio-diesel - reduces smoke and noise.
Window Seals - Rubber around the windows can be replaced by most window replacement companies if you call around.
Seats - I'm looking for seats. Mine are falling apart. Headrest is losing horse hair now.
