1979 and 1980 300SD parts cars
Mercedes Benz 300SD Turbo Diesel 4 Door Sedan and Parts car.
The heater works! not just the defroster. unfortunately the AC does not.
but the sunroof opens and closes, so I just roll that back in the warm weather.
The upholstery and interior is complete and in ok condition especially for a 31 year old car. A couple of the interior parts are not installed in the car but I have them.
Body is fair with the usual little scratches and dents. Nothing big.
Tires are fair.
I have a CD with the Maintenance manual on it including wiring and vacuum diagrams and every other thing you can think of. But i cant find it right now I am diligently looking for it. (I have some printed materials also)
I have titles for both cars.
Now for the bad things:
Something happened to the engine and it quit on me suddenly. Then it wouldn't start. Later I got it to run but it knocks and squeaks really loud. Sadly, the engine is toast. A friend of mine who is a diesel mechanic says it can be rebuilt easily.
The power door lock system had a vacuum leak some where so I disconnected it.
The passenger window rolls down but not up. (It can go up if you help it)
It needs a new flexdisc at the differential. (a German version of a u-joint)
and probably several other minor things that go along with such an old car.
The parts car was running good when I parked in my driveway years ago. The body is pretty good. Over the years I have removed various parts to use on the good car. The parts car probably runs but the tranny slips.
I have labeled, wrapped and protected the parts in the parts car. The parts car is nearly complete, just that some parts are no good.
A person might swap the engines and have a good running car again.
I had a lot of fun driving this car. It was quick for such a big old car and cornered nicely. Lots of control.
I averaged 22 mpg. I never had trouble passing DEQ.
I really want to sell both cars, right now I wont consider selling them separately. In parts I'm sure they are worth quite a bit but I just don't want to go through the hassle.
I know no one will buy these sight unseen but I'd like to hear some kind of a fair offer. I don't want to plan my life around some one showing up and offering nothing, or not showing up at all.
Please ask many questions. but don't waste our time.
