1981 300TD Turbo For Sale or Parts

'81 300TD Turbo either for sale or will part out. Drove the car regularly up until about a year ago and was going to restore it, but found too much rust. Engine runs great and starts easily. Only issue with engine that I'm aware of is it doesn't attempt shutdown with the key (probably vacuum leak since it has a new shutoff valve) and manually shutting it down requires a few trys. I have two injector pumps available for it that appear to be in good shape (one is really clean) that should solve the manual shutdown problem.

Transmission is good as far as I know. Never had a problem with the tranny. Lights work except for intermittent backup light operation. Problem is at the lights themselves I believe. Heat works, but auto climate control is intermittent. A/C works for a while if recharged.

Brakes were replace all around about 2 years ago, but has developed a leaking brake line someplace near the middle. New E-Brake cables. Auto-leveling works, but leaks some fluid near the pump (haven't found the leak yet). Has new battery. No problems with turbo.

Have a box with misc items (transmission filter, belts, etc.) Have a new set of glow plugs.

Car is located in Southern Dutchess County in New York.

Make offer.
