FOR SALE: 1987 300TD wagon w/ Elsbett conversion kit

The car has 222,500 miles on it and has an Elsbett single-tank conversion kit on it to enable you to run it on straight vegetable oil.It has the updated engine head # 22 on it.The original # 14 head on these cars isn't as well designed.It gets 30-32mpg at 60-65mph.This car is much faster and handles much better than the 1985 & older 300TD's .I found another 1987 wagon with much lower miles on it, otherwise I'd keep this car since its hard to find one of these in decent shape.
Also, It has a block heater on it for those below 40F. mornings.I've had the oil changed every 3-4,000 miles and use Swepco 502 engine oil improver, which gives ultimate protection.Except for the Elsbett installation & tires all work has been done by a local Mercedes only mechanic, here in Santa Rosa, CA.
V.I.N. : WDBEB93D4HF023985
