1984 300TD SLOW on HILLS

Hello, I just purchased a 1984 300D, it starts slow and when I tried driving it over a pass on the continental divide, it was so slow, i was being passed by semis with their flashers. I had to have the pedal floored on a straight away just to get about 70.

300D not TD

Can you advise me ?

Based on comments in this thread, 300D turbo top speed , you weren't doing too badly I think. Here's a longer discussion on W123 model cars you can sift through: http://www.benzworld.org/forums/w123...top-speed.html
