FS 1983 300D Turbo

I purchased this beautiful 1983 300D in 2008. Aside from the dealer I purchased it from I believe I am the second owner. I no longer have the time to tinker with it as my schedule has me on the road more often. This car has been quite reliable consideing its age however the buyer should understand that these cars require maintenance to keep them running faithfully. I had originaly intenteded to convert it to run on WVO however I never got around to it. I will be sad to see this car go. Its a classy looking ride. I have piced it below NADA fair market value.

The car has 257,000 original miles. Low miles for these cars at this age. It was repainted by the original owner. Paint color is not faded. Please email for additional photos.
