WTB: 81-85 300TD wagon
Due to changing life circumstances and that we now acknowledge there will always be Labrador Retrievers in the family, I am looking for another 81-85 turbo diesel wagon to join the fleet.
I will pay top dollar for top condition and am looking for a 'keeper' by most standards. Ideal candidates are light colored, rust-free southern or west coast cars, with MB Tex, not converted or altered in any manner and have supporting paperwork. I'm not unfamiliar with the search process and know what I'm up against.
I live in southern California but distance is not a problem. My current '84 wagon -- a 'keeper' as well -- was purchased in Atlanta. I am also patient. If you are viewing these words at any time in the future, I am still looking. I will update this post when I find the right one.
If you know anyone considering a sale, please drop me a note. I often check ads in the usual sources but obviously can't see everything in a timely manner -- if something catches your eye, I'd be eternally grateful for a heads-up.
Thank you for taking time to look at my request. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.
I realize newbie posts in many forums aren't always taken seriously. There was a time when I actively participated in Mercedes discussion forums but eventually realized, to paraphrase someone famous, 'No one on their death bed wishes they had spent more time in front of the computer.' I'm happy to help anyone when I can and think I'm well practiced at returning favors.
