1985 300d W123
Thinking to sell my 1985 300d euro import with cloth seats.
Over the past few months I have:
replaced injector hoses
replaced all fuel filters
cleaned out tank and intank fuel screen
replaced front bumper rubber
replaced a tire after a blowout.
I searched long and hard for one of these before I took the plunge and this was the most car for the least money. Car had 215,201 miles on it when the odometer went out. I spent a saturday trying to fix the problem, and wound up with an odometer where all numbers spin. Since then I have kept a spreadsheet with exact daily mileages. I drive the car each day 22 miles roundtrip. It has plenty of power, shifts well, no leaks. Has aftermarket radio, but I have the original.
Needs: Spare rim and tire, brakes in the next year, paint at some point. Paint shows well, pictures well, but is original and ready for an update. Drivers side rear window does not work. Has small rust on the drain spouts at bottom of car.
Most importantly I have a shoebox full of records on this car. I know this car like a the back of my hand, so feel free to ask questions.
I need 3k for the car. not 2k or 2500, 3k. I think it is well worth that compared to other cars out there.
I would be willing to swap for an 87 300td of equal value.
