Red face For sale: 1981 300SD W126 sedan (NY metro area)

Brown/tan 1981 MB 300SD W126 5-cylinder turbodiesel sedan for sale. 256,200 miles. Still gets about 25 MPG. "Make a reasonable offer."

Includes 4+1 14"all-season tires, and 4 snows on MB rims, though I would consider selling the snows separately. Muffler installed at Midas last year. New Sears Die Hard International battery installed last summer. Oil changed at the dealer last week.

I would continue to drive this car myself (26 miles daily for the past few years), but last night I took it to my dealer due to a rough idle. The dealer made some adjustments to the engine, but said that they found "blow by" and that it would probably be too time consuming for them to look for the cause of it. Alas, being not so mechanically inclined, I reluctantly agreed.

Things that work: Car drove fine, up until the rough idle started yesterday (I drove it myself to the dealer), steering, brakes, transmission, exhaust, power windows, power sunroof.

Things that could use some work, but don't affect driveability: tachometer, power antenna, climate control, cruise control, fuel gauge (ok between 5/8 and 1/1, but otherwise twitchy; reserve light stays on), vacuum locks, parking brake, rust in the front quarterpanels.

It's sad to see this car go. It has served my family well for the past 16 years. Please give my car a new lease on life!

This car is in Rockland County, New York, just north of New Jersey. I will try to post photos in the next day or two.
