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.
Finished in Burgundy with a Bordeaux interior, this Automatic Mercedes 220D was delivered in Left Hand Drive. The car entered Ireland from California in 1994 and has always been kept in a garage. Having spent many years in sunny California the condition of both body and chassis can only be described as excellent. The unmarked interior is in equally fine order. The MOT is until August 11th 2017, this fantastic 220D is a hugely enjoyable classic car that can accommodate the whole family.
