1983 mercedes 300d turbo -blown head gasket-‏

Great car, ran very strong before an unidentified cooling issue caused severe overheating leading to a blown head gasket.

straight clean body with no rust AT ALL. there isn't a dent on it! original russet brown paint with tan mbtex interior.

headlight surrounds are very nice!
chrome is great!
power everything
aluminum rims x5
4 great tires
4 studded snow tires, if interested.

in august 2009 i put quite a bit of money into this car, here's what was done:

complete coolant system flush with mercedes citric acid.
new coolant expansion tank.
new rear shock absorbers.
new steering damper.
new rear brake pads.
new exhaust hangers.
new wipers.

also bought a new factory rear window seal, but the the car died before i could get it installed. seal is included in sale or for sale seperately.

the car is located in lake tahoe california/nevada.

car still starts and runs. but has low power and overheats very quickly

make me an offer!
