Spotted for sale is a 1981 Mercedes 300D Diesel for $7,000
Beautiful color !
5-cylider non-turbo Diesel, Automatic transmission. Shows 104k miles, odometer is currently not turning over. Starts, runs, shifts, drives and stops great! Very strong and smooth engine, minimal blow-by. Has great power for a non-turbo and no problem keeping up with freeway traffic.
Rare and striking English Red over Palomino MB-tex. Car has been re-painted original color, some imperfections but still presents very well. Interior is in very nice condition, original Becker radio. Two long-term owners, car has been in California nearly it’s entire life and is very dry and solid. Original books and partial service records, even has original cassette-head cleaning swabs! This car also has the rare and desirable 14x6” aluminum wheels, available only on certain 1981 models.
Current needs include tires, an oil leak (no issues with driveability, I check it regularly), clunk from front suspension. Some normal wear and tear for age, but appears to have been very well maintained. Heater and blower works, AC does not. Car always starts right up and drives very smoothly, have driven regularly for the past year, has never left me stranded. ...
