For Sale Questionable '87 300TDT
Earlier this summer I lost my beloved '87 300SDL in a brutal rear-ending and hastily purchased one of the much lauded 603 powered wagons from the same year.
The bad: It smokes. Sometimes clouds of white and rough idle, sometimes just a strong smell and visible in sunlight. Some fleet guys saw it and couldn't point to anything obvious. And I fully recognize, these were not Benz guys -- most of the Benz guys around here are on vacation, it seems. It certainly does not behave like my other 603 and I have no desire to put any more time or money into this one, key reason being that I'm due back to college in Arizona very very soon (the end of August.)
Color is Champagne or maybe Smoke Silver, can't tell for sure. Interior is in decent, though far from perfect shape. Aftermarket cassette deck, sunroof works, self-leveling suspension works, rear hatch stays up, 3rd row seat. Newly repaired odometer reads 266,xxx adjusted based on estimates from past owner -- True body mileage is unknown and this is the second engine the car has known. Average east coast rust spots here and there but nothing structural that I can see. Currently PA inspected, title is exempt from mileage reading.
Have had some interest on craigslist, hoping someone here (who actually knows what they're doing!) might give her a good home, or use her for parts! Asking 2500 obo. Car is located in Southeastern Pennsylvania (~45 min West of Philadelphia.)
Thanks for reading.
