FS: 1979 300TD Wagon, Utah

I am selling my 1979 300TD Diesel Wagon. The car was purchased by my father in 1991. The car was driven until around 1993 then garaged for 10 years. When it was resurrected the engine was worn out, ie no compression, so we rebuilt the engine in 2003 at a cost of almost $3000.

It is in beautiful condition inside and out. The AC runs cold, the heater hot.

We just replaced the glow-plugs and fixed the speedometer. There is approximately 165,000 miles on the car with about 10,000 on the new engine.

Has a 3rd row seat we added as well as a luggage rack. I have a spare windshield (has a brand new one). I also have a set of chrome Mercedes wheels & tires.

Hmmm, I don't remember but it is possible. I live in Provo but have driven the wagon infrequently for the past few years...I do tend to get a lot of Mercedes enthusiasts that talk to me when I am driving it because it is in such great shape.

I was mistaken in my original post, I have modified it. Basically, when we resurrected the car out of storage the existing engine was just worn out, and there was no compression. It just plain wouldn't start up...so we they recommended we rebuild the engine. If you have more questions, please ask.

Any takers? This car is in wonderful shape, no rust...runs like a champ. We just replaced the starter and two tires. Would like to get it sold before Utah.

Love your last sentence, it begs for a contest... $500 off the sale price for the person who can finish this line with the most creativity...

"Would like to get it sold before Utah _________________________________"

Answers like,

"votes to make Transexual marriges legal.", or

"outlaws the ownership of guns", or maybe

"outlaws the immigration of California retireree liberals"...

A serious guess might be "before WINTER HITS Utah.

Hey, if I'm way off base, maye you can finish the sentence for us...lol

Nice car, like to buy it for a DD, but 6K is a lot more than I'm looking to invest.

Good luck with the sale...
