1978 300CD Coupe Non-Turbo Black/Black - $750 - SOLD!

1978 300CD Coupe Non-Turbo Black/Black ----- SOLD!!-----
139,380 miles
The car is cheap because it has a blown head gasket and will need a new one. It starts right up and runs very well but there is pressure buildup after several minutes.
The interior is nice, the dash has a few minor cracks and the driver seat side panel needs repair.
The paint is decent but there are some rust spots on the hood and the paint on the left fender is faded from bad overspray.
The car is in Santa Monica, CA and has December 08 tags paid. I was planning to restore the car since I like coupes but I have too many things on my plate right now and need to move the car. More pictures are available on request.

Note the car does not come with the 15” bundts shown. It has two 7x15" 15 hole chromes on the front and two steelies on the rear.

Short video clip taken on 11/12/07 of the engine idling.

It's a nice car and I think it's priced accordingly. It is very rare to see that color combo even here where I see about 10 W123's per day. I have got too many projects so it's favorable to hand the car to someone else who will enjoy a nice CD!
