83 w123 300DT parts car, engine
for sale- whole car or just the engine. transmission is out of the car, but I believe by reinstalling the starter w/out the transmission and bypassing the neutral switch it can be started and you can hear it run.
engine ran great before pulling the transmission. I bought this car in may of 2005 just to get a rebuilt transmission out of it for another mercedes. Drove it untill January of 2006 untill i pulled transmission (has been in the garage since then), ran good. Turbo spooled just fine around 2.5-3k. It did have an oil leak at the connection of cyclone tube and oil pan, so you would need to get some seals. If you are interested in the whole car - the interior is pretty much stripped, as well as dash, glow plug relay is taking out, as well as glow plugs, condenser, and A/C compressor. The body is rough: dents in almost every panel. Transmission from another mercedes that I swapped will be included with the car (doesn't have 4th gear - B2 piston failure most likely, k1 spring replaced).
I will try to post some pictures this evening.
price: $400 for just the engine, which I think is fair, since you are getting a running motor. $500 for the whole car. Both prices OBO.
Car is located in Tampa, FL. if there will be any interest, I should be able to throw engine on the pallet for shipping
