Up for sale is a 1985 Mercedes 300D Turbo Diesel
This car is in incredible condition considering the year. This car is an east coast car so it does not have all of the restrictive emissions stuff that the california cars had. This car has all new....
- Brakes (new rotors, pads and wear sensors all around)
- Shocks (all 4 corners)
- Vacum Pump (Only weak link on these cars, the previous one was in great condition replaced it just so I know it is new)
- kuhmo tires all around (only 10,000 miles on them)
- Glow plugs
- Steering box
- Drag Link
Car has many more new parts (I have literally a BOOK full of receipts from me and the previous owner documenting the car)
I have had it into 2 mercedes mechanics in town and both have said the only issues with the car where the steering box and the shocks which i have fixed.
Only other thing wrong with the car is that it needs a new Ac compressor for the air conditioning to work. it is a simple job and I just dont car to do it as AC is not important to me.
The dash does have some cracks in it however I have yet to find a 300d that does not.
Just turned over to 210,000 miles, however these cars will last into the 500,00 mile mark with only minor service.
Also many improper tuned 300d's soot heavily under acceleration, I have mine tuned properly and it barely soots. i get an average of 28MPG IN TOWN with this car. Also it easily passed smog in nevada
No rust on the car, it apparently had rust when the previous owner owned it near the license plate, however he had a mercedes dealer professionally install a new panel (receipts to prove it)
The only thing different on the car from the photos is I have painted the wheels a dark silver (very close to the newer amg silver)
I have meticulously maintained the car and have done oil changes every 3000 miles with Mann filters and very high grade diesel oil, also I add diesel additive every other tank to keep the pump properly lubricated. This car has never been run on anything but straight diesel fuel so the engine is in perfect shape. Also I had the valves adjusted about 4000 miles ago.
This car runs amazing and has never given me issues starting even in the snow.
Asking $3500 OBO, I am open to trades for a Dodge Cummins (I am open to even trades or trade plus I add cash) or any other diesel rigs.
