1982 300CD Fiance wont let me keep her

I hate to do it but unfortunately the new fiance doesn't feel the same appreciation for her so I'm going to have to sell her

1982 300CD. Its not the original motor, Trans or Odometer. As far as I can tell the new 5cy has about 85K on it. Starts up every time and pulls real hard. I put 30Mi's on her last Sat. I was going to fix her up and for about $500 I think it would be the perfect everyday driver. Hoping to find someone that will appreciate her and not just part her out. Grey w Black Leather. Couple of rust spots in the trunk under the spare but looks to just be surface rust, can probably sand it down by hand and hit it with a can of primer. Will try to get some pics up shortly.

Asking $1800

VIN# WDBAB53A7CB001220

LOL. I guess I didn't walk into that one at all did I???

Here's a couple of pics for you guys.

The Paint isn’t pretty but the body is pretty straight. There is a dimple right of the rear license plate and a ding on the right door. It would be a easy car to prep for paint yourself. There’s a little rust in the trunk but its only surface rust. All the glass is good. I drove it back and forth to work today. Let me know if you have any questions.

Where was this a month ago, when I had disposable cash? I agree with others, she tells me to rid the Benz, she's on the street. Just sayin.

Let me tell you a little story - Back in 1965 I owned a '63 Corvette split window coupe. My new wife said get rid of the car because we are going to build a family and a small car won't work.
The vette today is worth about $125 to $150K.

I obeyed and got rid of the car. 7 years later I got rid of the wife. Moral of the story is "special cars only come your way rarely whereas wives come and go".

Think hard before you obey if you really like the car.

I understand Gents, and its not that she doesn't want me to keep the car, its just that if the car stays then I really need to get rid of my four wheelers or my Harley to make room.

Take your stand now or forever hold your peace! If she starts walking over you know, you're screwed.
