selling 1982 300TD station wagon

Classic Mercedes Benz 1982 300TD Turbo Diesel Station Wagon in beautiful mostly-original condition. 286,000 miles. This car has been in our family since new and many maintenance records are available. The car was purchased new in Austin, Texas and it has rarely left the state so there is no damage from ice or road salt. The car is currently licensed and insured in Texas: it has always been professionally maintained. Nobody in our family smokes so the interior is clean and smoke-free, from the day it was new. As you can see in the pictures the original blue leather and white paint are in excellent condition.

Factory installed features: third row seat, sunroof, roof rails, Becker Europa cassette radio (rebuilt), air conditioning (modernized with correct compressor and accessories), climate control system, automatic transmission (rebuilt), power steering, power brakes, vacuum locking system, power windows, leveling system. (we added a small satellite radio which can be removed: the antenna is magnetically attached)

Notes from a book on MB cars: “the wide-opening rear door gave easy access to the normal loading area of 1.23 meters long and 1.48 meters wide. With the rear seat folded down, the length is 1.78 meters giving a volume of 45.9 cubic feet.” The rear seat can be completely removed for more room. Average mileage is 28mpg. Diesel engine: 2.998 liters, 5 cylinders, 21:1 compression, Bosch mechanical fuel injection, turbo-charged. Body: 186” long, 70” wide, 58” high, wheelbase 110”. The third-row seat folds completely flat into the floor, as can be seen in the photographs.

This car is advertised on eBay motors with 14 photographs. my eBay name is escottspencer. A lovely car.

That's a nice, old, honest Benz that's been well-cared for while still used. Congrats. Hope someone gets it; I love it.

Nice car. Does it feel like your selling a family member? I'd be interested but already have a white 82 wagon . I like the honesty and originality of this one. Especially the blue leather. Best of luck!
