Trade/Sale 82 TD 297k Memphis
New to this forum but frequent poster on ***************** under same username.
Pictures are too large to load.
I have a 1982 300TD that I would like to either trade or sale. It has 297k on the clock. It is a southern rust free car. If you would like some more information and more pictures please just PM me with your email and I will send all the info to you quickly.
The local MB (german cars) mechanic took care of this car for the last 12 years until it was parked a year ago. I bought it recently and changed out most of the filters and the engine runs nice now. If you have any questions just let me know.
It has a 5cyl turbo diesel engine. The engine has been very well taken care of by my local MB shop here. The engine is very strong and has a lot of life left in it.
The car is 24 years old so there are a few things that I should mention. First, the paint is okay. Overall it isn't perfect, but doesn't look that bad. There are three rust spots on the hood about three inches around. The hood would need some paint and a clear coat but other than that the car wouldn't need to be painted.
There is a small dent in the drive side door near the hinge. It can be popped out if you want to remove the inside door panel. It really isn't hard to do but I just haven't bothered to do it yet. The only other dent is near the rear door hatch. Other than the small places I mentioned the body is in really good shape. There is no visible rust on the chassis. The interior is okay. It needs a good leather cleaner taken to it. The carpet is fair.
The transmission is good. It needs something called a b2 piston kit for it. It flairs in between the 2-3 shift. I bypassed the 3/2 on the head and it shifts much better. I still think it needs the b2piston but it doesn't flair bad now.
If you have any other questions just let me know. If you have any pictures you want me to take as well just let me know.
