1985 300TD wagon
This car is my daily driver and has only given me occasional trouble starting in the winter. However, I just installed a new block heater this winter and have had no problems since.
It's got literally thousands of dollars worth of parts installed since I purchased it in 2001. I've got service records for a lot of it. I've changed the oil religiously every 2,500 miles. Still a strong runner.
B2 piston in transmission (a common failing in this model, mine went Christmas day of this year on the way to my parents house!)
fuel lines, rotors, pads, calipers, radiator, fuel injectors rebuilt, new glowplugs, and much more. I'd be typing all day if I listed everything done to this.
Of course, being so old it does have some rust and dents. The interior is in pretty good condition for the age. Dash has some small cracks but overall in good shape.
W123 / mileage: 270,XXX
This car is located in Avon, NY. I'm selling it for $3,000 or b/o which is what I bought it for in 2001.
