Hi all I really need help? Ok here goes I purchased a 1992 300se for 3,500 it has a rebuilt engine,full tune up,brakes,monovalve done and climate control sensor and the ac blows ice cold suspension is ok. It may need a new tranny as I have to let off the gas for the trans to shift cost $2200 I was going to sell this car as is and buy a 1983 300sd with 249,000 miles for $1,800 it has been well maintained. I need some input from the experts and yes I know the most expensive Mercedes is the cheapest you can buy. Anyone out there that can help me with my problem or should I stick to CHEVY LOL

Personally I bet the 300 diesel will outlive the gasser, but if you are not planning to run them for over 100,000 miles that doesn't really matter. The parts for 123 body are way cheaper and you start lower as well. Fuel consumption should be similar, but gasser has probably much better acceleration.
The first thing I would take a close look is the gasser rebuild bill. Lot of unqualified shops have done shady jobs in this field.

This is what the great Meat Loaf referred to as "into the fire from the frying pan".
