1988 Mercedes 190 2.5 Diesel Manual Gearbox

Post by Big Al » Sun 05 Nov, 2017 3:05 am

Hi there,
I have just discovered that I own the last remaining 1988 Mercedes 190 with a 2.5 diesel engine and a manual gearbox in the U.K. and wonder how many there are in Australia and New Zealand?

We don't have an active database such as you have in the U.K. to list the number of available models of historic cars still registered.

Not many diesel 190's made it to Australia and if any of those were manuals then these would number in the handful.

There were a lot of Australia specific only 180e manuals sold. But these were unique to Australia mainly because of tax issues.
W211 - E240
W204 - C280
W202 - C200, C180, C180
W126 - 380SE , 380SE (Ex SA Import), 560SEL
W124 - 300e, 260e (ex Japan)
W111 220s (Indonesia) 4 speed manual column shift
W123 230
W116 450SEL
W140 420SEL
W210 E240, E240
W209 CLK 240
W201 190e 2.6 (ex U.K.)
