1979 300TD wagon, restored, vegetable converted, $4000, Santa Monica, CA

New glow plug relay ($283) yesterday. New Lowered Price (need cash). Full, robust vegetable oil conversion with heat exchanger, fuel filters, line heaters, etc. New alternator and battery (December 2008), fuel filter and injector cleaning and runs better than it ever has (December 2008). Just Repainted, Replaced headliner, Replaced interior pieces, new carpeting, new hood pad. New front brakes and shifter bushings (January 16th, 2009). 192K miles, Tow hitch, New A/C blowing cold. New Uniroyal tires. New chrome wheel well trim. AM/FM CD with IPOD connection. Replaced side moulding/trim, recently serviced, oil change, crush washers, ball joint replaced. Runs great on diesel or waste vegetable oil, Good power. Just drove it to Yosemite with a bunch of veggie oil in the back and it operated flawlessly. Was asking $8500 based on the prices of others that are offered but need some cash (like everyone these days). Non-turbo, plenty of power, better mileage, easier to maintain. Hydraulic autoleveling suspension serviced and works flawlessly. Rear power windows don't go up as the switches have fallen off when i put the seats down so they need to be reattached and wires plugged into the right prongs. Fronts work great. Very Reliable. Amazing deal.
