The seller said his grandfather had this car made in Germany to American specifications, that it start and runs, and was well cared for. That the rear ends on 300Ds tend to have rust poblems, and in this car the reard subframe, swing arms and a couple related things have been replaced. He thought the tires, brakes, ball joints and tierod ends should be replaced.
I like your calling this a million-mile engine. I'm thinking it's worth a trip to the mechanic for a checkover. The kinds of things that should be replaced or rebuilt are what I'm trying to know more about.
